If you want to visit more remote ice cave and stay away from the crowd, this is a tour that would fit your needs. Natural Ice caves in Iceland is getting very popular, many people travelling from all parts of the world want to come and see this magnificent phenomenon. On this tour, we go to Ice cave that is more remote and out of the beaten track of the mass of people that want to see ice cave.
The tour departures from the beautiful Jökulsárlón (Glacier Lagoon), from there we will drive towards the glacier on a super jeep, usually takes about 35 – 45 minutes each way. We will go through all the equipment that we need to use, most of the time we need to hike on the glacier part of the way. Therefore it is important to have the proper gear. Glacier Trips provides all the safety gears like crampons, helmets, harness and ice pick. After about 70 – 90 minutes of hiking in a beautiful glacier landscape with all the wild, unspoiled nature we will reach the ice cave. We will have plenty of time to photograph and explore the ice cave and enjoy the magnificent shapes in the ice cave. After a good time, we will head back to the car the same way, usually takes about 70 – 90 minutes.
The total length of the tour is about 5-6 hours and is considered to be moderate. Good clothes and shoes are very important.
If you are a photographer that wants to capture the ice cave, this is a tour we recommend for you. We have plenty of time and fewer people in an ice cave. This would be the tour where you have the best option to get the perfect photo.
All the ice caves are naturally made therefore it is the nature that decides how they are shaped and where they are located. Safety is our priority, and/so we will always choose the best Ice cave for every trip. The drive and the walk to the ice cave can, therefore, be different between days. If nature decides we are not able to go to the ice cave we have other extraordinary alternatives for you.
