To The Crystal Ice Cave

With South East Iceland


Led by a local guide | Natural unique | Photo Opportunities | Natural Ice Cave | Super Jeep


A trip to the ice caves gives you an everlasting memory of your visit to our amazing Vatnajökull National Park. Inside Europe’s largest glacier the interaction of light and ice is unique and the experience of being inside the glacier is so breathtaking that no word can describe it.

We drive in our super jeep from Glacier lagoon to the steel of Breiðamerkurjökull glacier, but there is where the caves form with the interaction of water, ice and temperature changes during spring- and summertime. The ride to the glacier takes about 30-45 minutes depending on the snow layer. You have about 45 minutes to explore the cave and breath in the energy of the glacier.

Ice caves are a natural phenomenon and ever-changing. Sometimes Crystal Cave is impassable because of water and in those cases, we will go to another cave. Each cave has its own identity but all are magnificent in their natural beauty. We explore those caves that are available at each time and season, but please be aware that the caves change from season to season and even from month to month within the same season so they are always unique and do not always look precisely as on pictures.

There are other tour guides working in the ice caves as well, so it is likely to meet other groups on our way to or from the cave and inside the cave.
