Ice caves, like the one you will explore today, can be found in several different locations on the south side of Vatnajokull. Some ice caves are very special, while others might not seem as special but become extraordinary in the right light and conditions. Your glacier guide is a highly- qualified mountain- and ice cave specialist who will decide which cave is best to visit. The ice caves that are chosen depend on the time of winter, time of day, weather and other conditions. Some ice caves are very stable to visit. Others are less safe and you might not be able to reach them. Some caves are only accessible in subfreezing conditions.
