Join us for an exploration of a secret ice cave along the South Coast of Iceland. On the way to the cave from Reykjavík, you see a picturesque landscape that features the stark contrast of black sandy earth. Mossy green mountains, and the Mýrdalsjökull glacier.
The Secret Ice Cave
After enjoying gorgeous views, we arrive at the ice cave nestled in a location known only to a few. As we follow the path into the cave, you notice the glistening walls and high ceiling made of ice that has been artfully sculpted by glacial water.
The sounds of black sand crunching beneath our feet and water dripping inside the ice cave is the soundtrack for our adventure. We will weave along a path before entering an epic opening in the ice cave that features its own sunroof.
The light shining on the icy walls showcases the unique characteristics of this secret gem. Later on, we follow the front of the outlet glacier where it stands high with ash covered ice wall. That forms the high contrast between the surrounding mountains and the glacier itself. The location of this cave allows for stunning views of the surrounding scenery.
Black Sand Beach
Following our exploration of the fantastic secret ice cave, we stop near the Black Sand Beach at Hjörleifshöfði mountain. There we experience more breathtaking Icelandic nature. Those who are coming from Reykjavík will enjoy one more scenic stop at Seljalandsfoss waterfall before heading back to their accommodation.
