The Crystal Blue Ice Cave Tour

This wonderful Jökulsarlon Ice Cave tour will let you see one of the most spectacular Iceland ice caves to date!

The Crystal Ice Cave Iceland tour departs from Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, located 379km from Reykjavik, at least 4.5 hours drive from Reykjavik in best conditions. Staying close to the glacier lagoon for one night, before or after visiting the ice cave, is not a bad idea. Please follow weather and road conditions before you take off – the weather can be very different just outside the city.

We will pick you up at Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon in a super jeep and drive to the edge of the glacier, where we will gear up and get ready for the caving. After a short hike (approx. 20-30 mins), we’ll arrive at the magnificent ice cave, where you will explore its wonders at your own pace.

Ice caves begin to take shape in autumn each year and last throughout the winter. Caves can be found in several locations on the south side of Vatnajökull. These trips are somewhat temperature dependent as ice caves must be treated with the utmost respect regarding the supportive ceiling, along with other factors that your specialized guide constantly evaluates. You will have the chance to visit one of them during this trip and to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Please wear warm clothes and waterproof layers. It’s always good to have some snacks with you and a bottle of water. Hiking shoes are mandatory!

You will be wearing a helmet, so a smaller hat is recommended for it to fit underneath the helmet.
