Know More about this tour

Wrap up in warm clothes and don a pair of comfortable shoes and sunglasses, and then make your own way to Klaki Base Camp which is located by Langjökull Glacier (or Husafell in the winter time). 

On arrival at the base, meet your professional guide and gear up in warm overalls (if you wish) and snow chains for your shoes before boarding an eight-wheeled monster truck for the drive up to the cave entrance. The truck has been specially modified to be able to drive over the crevasses and ice.

Upon arrival at the cave entrance, you'll disembark the truck and head inside the actual glacier with your guide. The man-made tunnel, nearly 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) above sea level is a wonder to behold. A feat of engineering, the ice is lit up from behind by glowing hues, allowing you to see the layers that have formed over many years. Your guide will lead you through the glacier's 1,650-foot (500-meter) corridors and caves on foot. Stopping along the way to talk about the geology and the history of glaciers, how they are formed, how they move, and why they are important to all of mankind.

Your tour concludes after just under an hour inside the glacier, leaving you free to make your own way back to your accommodation in Reykjavik.

  • Amazing trip. Guides are really good. Long trip up to the glacier but well worth it as you get to see some incredible sights. Warm gear can be provided.

  • This tour was amazing. My 5 year old daughter thought it was the best day ever! Our tour guide, Thor, was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. He even sang in the ice chapel to demonstrate the beautiful acoustics. Definitely worth the money.

  • Really great tour, guides were very knowledgeable. Once in a lifetime experience! Dress warm and wear good shoes!

  • Great tour! Very kid friendly! How often do you get to walk inside a glacier?!

  • This was one of the highlights of our trip. Where else can you explore caves and tunnels underneath a glacier?? The guide was fantastic and the experience was unforgettable. One thing to think about for this excursion is transportation from your hotel to the meeting point where they take you in an 8 wheeled vehicle up the glacier. We rented a car in Rejkyavik and drove ourselves 2 hours and appreciated the scenic drive, but clearly, one needs to plan this in advance.

  • Excellent tour! I went on this tour in January and it was incredible. Very well organized and the guides were very knowledgeable. It was also the right duration for what we were seeing.

  • This was the activity my husband and I wanted to experience most while in Iceland. The initial one was cancelled due to weather. Fortunately, it was scheduled for the first day we were there so we were able to reschedule but we spent a lot of extra money and had to scramble to make it happen. I just wanted to mention this because tours in Iceland can frequently change or cancel because of weather so try to plan accordingly.
    The tour guides were a lot of fun and really seemed to enjoy their jobs! They provided a lot of interesting information and were knowledgeable about their tour and land.
    It was more than wonderful to be where you're taken on this tour. Being on top of a glacier, on the snowy mountains was just perfect. I am not a very descriptive writer, but if you're interested in being on top of a mountain, on top of a glacier, walking through a glacier and riding safely in a giant snow vehicle with great guides, this will be the perfect tour for you! Just try to prepare for the weather accordingly!

  • Very cool experience!

  • Tour was as expected. The guide made sure all people were properly attired for the cold before they let you go on the tour. The guide is very informative. the ice cave will only be around for another 7 years, pending the climate changes.

  • Iy you have the time and 's well worth the experience
