Know More about this tour

After hotel pickup, depart Reykjavik on a Mercedes-Benz coach equipped with a Wi-Fi connected computer tablet at each seat, which you can use to access the on-board, GPS-enabled audio guide. Your tour is also led by a guide, who will happily answer any questions you might have about Iceland's unique geography.

Your first stop is the Langjkull glacier, the second-largest glacier in the country. As soon as you find yourself standing on top of the ice cap, get ready to go beneath the surface, traveling aboard a specially modified glacier vehicle to reach the man-made ice cave, aka ice tunnel; during this experience, learn from your guide how global climate change has impacted the surrounding area.

Deep in the glacier, you have the chance to admire thestunning blue ice, and hear about the glacier's constant motion. Until very recently, what lies below Langjkull was a mystery, but sometimesbold ideas come to life, and the creation of this man-made ice cave was onlypossiblewith help from top engineers and renowned geophysicists. Inside the glacier, where the temperature is usually around 32 Fahrenheit (0 C), you can see from the layers of ice how the glacier was formed.

After this, return to the warmth of the vehicle, and head to Hsafell for lunch (own expense). Then choose betweenseeing the famous Hraunfossar, a waterfall that flows over lava rock or relax in the thermal pool in the small village of Hsafell. Your tour ends with return to Reykjavik for hotel drop-off.
