Explore the stunning crystal ice caves in Europe’s largest glacier Vatnajökull. Once you enter the ice cave you’ll see that it’s simply a once in a lifetime experience. It’s like standing under a frozen blue ocean or in a frozen cathedral surrounded by millions of shades of blue. Don’t miss your chance to experience one of the wonders of the world.
Our 4×4 truck will work hard through the lunar landscape and chew its way through rocks, ice and snow to get us there. Depending on the conditions on the day and how far we can drive we will do a short hike up to the ice cave.
All our guides are specially trained so listen carefully to their safety instructions and always wear your helmet. We stay around 45 minutes in the ice cave. As the caves have become very popular there will be other groups in the cave at the same time.
Once you enter an ice cave you’ll see that it’s simply a once in a lifetime experience being inside one of the wonders of the world. It’s like standing under a frozen blue ocean or in a frozen cathedral with a million shades of white and blue.
As ice caving has become the no. 1 popular thing to do in Iceland, you must expect other people in the ice caves especially around national holidays.
All images you see on our website are shot on our tours the past seasons. However, ice caves change every season and are reborn with the meltwater from the Summer season, so the ice caves will NOT be exactly like the images you see here. The images can only be used as a guidance. We just have to wait and see what Mother Nature makes for us each season.
We meet by the café at Jökulsarlon/Glacier Lagoon at 09:00 and 12:00, it is best to be there 15 minutes before.
Dont take our word for it, here are few Tripadvisor comments.
We did this tour in September of 2013 and had an incredible time- worth every penny. Even saw the Northern Lights on our drive back. Our guide Teitur was fantastic. We’ll never forget the experience and will recommend it to everyone we know who visits Iceland.
We have done two tours with Goecco during the last week. Glacial lagoon tour and Snæfellsnes tour. Both with Teitur as a guide.
The two days have been amazing, probably the best memories we’ll keep from Iceland. Teitur always tried to be nice, to take care of us, to have interesting discussions.
We can’t be enough thankful for how he made our holidays ! You can go with them on a tour, without hesitating.
