Full description

Experience Langjökull Iceland’s second-largest glacier and enjoy the rare sight of blue ice at the heart of an ice cap glacier on this half-day tour from Reykjavik. Walk through the glacier's corridors and learn about geology, the history of glaciers, how they are formed, and how they move.

You will be picked up and brought to Husafell where you will meet a professional guide and gear up in warm overalls, before boarding a specially-modified glacier truck for the drive up to the cave entrance. Prepare yourself to meet the glacier up close and personal.

Arriving at the cave entrance, head deep inside the glacier with your guide. Enjoy the vastness of the man-made Langjökull Glacier Tunnel, which is a wonder to behold. Experience the ice which is lit up from behind by glowing hues, and see the layers that have formed over many years.

Really great tour! Very organized and efficient, there are ski suits, raincoats and crampons for everyone. Kiddi drove the 8-wheeled super vehicle and did a great job! Daudd was our guide, very prepared and nice, he spoke English very well and above all he was very kind because he was available to take souvenir photos in various points of the ice tunnel. The tour is truly a unique and unforgettable experience then if you are lucky enough to find Daudd as a guide it will be truly a show !!!

A unique experience. The impression and the information about this unreal nature is sensational. Even if the ice cave is a bit smaller than expected, the trip with the specially converted transport trucks alone is worth the event. Hopefully the glaciers will remain for a long time. Only the price was a bit expensive. But that's my subjective opinion.
