Descend to the frozen enchantment of Iceland’s ice caves on a full-day trip from Reykjavik. Alongside your guide, you’ll spend the day at the Langjökull Glacier and explore the icy labyrinths below it. Deep inside the glacier cave, you’ll admire fjords and waterfalls while listening to commentary rich with geological information. Then, head to the Borgarfjörður valley to be amazed by the beauty of Hraunfossar falls, a waterfall carved out by volcanic eruptions. Round-trip transport from your Reykjavik hotel are included.
After emerging early, you’ll board a vehicle destined for the Langjökull Glacier — the second largest glacier in Iceland. On arrival at the glacier, step onto the ice and begin your descent into the atmospheric ice caves below.
In a specially modified glacier vehicle, you’ll ride through magical ice tunnels to a man-made glacier cave. As you ride, learn about the effects global warming has on the ice caves and watch the ice melt and transform before your eyes.
After hearing more about the history and geology of the ice caves, travel to the inviting warmth of Hotel Húsafell to enjoy lunch (at own expense). Satisfied, continue to the Borgarfjörður valley — famed for its fertile farmlands and volcanic beauty — and visit the magnificent Hraunfossar falls. Capture photographs of the natural landmark and then relax during the journey back to Reykjavik hotel, where the tour concludes.
