Come and experience the out-of-this-earth beauty of a crystal blue ice cave in winter on a SuperTruck. You’ll explore off-the-beaten-path spots on a glacier walk near Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe. Meet our friendly guides by Jökulsárlón parking lot, beside the famous glacier lagoon in the South Eastern region of Iceland. Take that one Instagram-worthy picture that you will show to everyone back home: you and the natural blue ice cave that welcomed you. 

The tour begins when you meet our expert and friendly guides by the parking lot of Jökulsárlón the glacier lagoon. They will be waiting for you with a sign by our Super Jeep. After you have hopped on the vehicle, you will drive with your group to the cave. The drive itself is exciting and bumpy! Your expert guide will make sure you feel safe at all times and learn absolutely everything there is to know about the area as you travel on our modified “Monster Truck”.

Once you arrive in the area that is home to the caves, you’ll take a short hike through the landscape to the cave where you can learn about the world-famous Vatnajökull glacier from your guide, who will also share with you some knowledge about the area. You will learn about the Game of Thrones locations and other productions that took place in the area. Make sure you bring comfortable pants, a warm sweater and a waterproof layer on top of it, in case it rains. Remember you are traveling in winter in Iceland!

Afterwards, your guide will show you how to put on the crampons, steel frames which are tied to your hiking boots and make it possible for you to walk on the glacier before you reach the world-famous blue ice cave. This stunning phenomenon is a must see for anyone visiting Iceland during wintertime and one of Iceland’s most famous tours. During this tour, you’ll be standing inside an ancient glacier that holds a natural blue ice cave with different shades of blue colors and formations.

The structure and condition of the caves can vary greatly each year. Our guide decides which cave to visit every day depending on safety and weather conditions. Once there, you will have plenty of time to take that one picture you will frame and share with everyone back home. After happy memories are created, you’ll return happy and warm to continue your travels.

Never been on an ice cave excursion before? No worries! Our certified glacier guides will keep you safe at all times before, during and after this expedition in search of the blue ice cave.
