Overview

Photo opportunities abound at Vatnajökull, Europe's largest glacier. This half-day guided tour takes you inside an ice cave to experience the wonders of southeast Iceland up close. Ride round-trip in a Jeep and expect to walk over some rough terrain. Helmet, ice axe, harness, and crampons are provided.

  • Half-day ice cave adventure from Hali
  • Explore the natural features of Vatnajökull
  • Helmet, ice axe, harness and crampons provided
  • Round-trip 4WD transport from a central location

Meet your guide at the Hali Country Hotel reception desk (Þórbergssetur visitor center), located 8 miles (13 km) east of Jökulsárlón. Set off for Vatnajökull glacier in the morning or afternoon, depending on the departure time selected at booking. 

Driving to the location can take 25–45 minutes, based on the best ice cave available, a determination made according to safety and weather conditions. Your guide has local knowledge of the geological features of the region and hunts for ice caves to include on outdoor adventures each season. During the Jeep ride, learn how ice caves are formed and hear about the area's history.

Upon reaching your destination, it's anywhere from a 5- to 60-minute hike to the cave over some gravel, ice, and other Icelandic terrain. If necessary, your guide will help you use the provided helmet, ice axe, harness, and crampons. Soak up an unforgettable experience as you marvel at the magnificent surroundings inside an ice cave, including plenty of photo ops.

Your tour may last between 2.5–5 hours with return 4WD transport to the starting point.
