Here’s an unforgettable opportunity to explore the magical and mysterious netherworld of Langjokull glacier, as well as see some beautiful Icelandic nature.
Your group departs early from Reykjavik and enjoys a crisp morning view of your destination: Langjokull Glacier, the second largest glacier in Iceland.
Step on board our bus fleet, equipped with computer tablets in each seat. On the tablets you can use our GPS Sensitive In Bus Audio Guide available in ten languages. The audio guide shares interesting facts about Iceland and the places you will visit today. On board, there is also an English- speaking host ready to answer your questions.
The man-made Ice Tunnel and Cave are located high up in a remote area of Langjokull glacier in the very heart of Iceland. To reach the entrance you’ll board a huge specially modified truck and ascend the glacier. During the trip, your guide will discuss how global warming has started to impact Iceland’s glacial environment.
A local Ice Cave guide will then take you on an amazing journey deep within the glacier. Here, you can see the stunning blue-hued ice. The glacier is in constant motion, and you will see evidence of that as you learn how glaciers are formed.
After the ice cave tour, you’ll enjoy the welcome warmth of the glacier truck as you head back down. After a lunch stop in the beautiful Husafell area (lunch not included), your tour continues along Borgarfjordur valley. You’ll visit Hraunfossar, a beautiful lava waterfall almost a mile long gushing through a wall of lava and the nearby Barnafoss waterfalls before returning to Reykjavik.
