Crystal Ice Cave | Vatnajökull - South

Crystal Ice Cave | Vatnajökull - South

Experience the extraordinary world of an ice cave where the scattering of the light as it seeps through the ice, gives the cave a mystical blue colour. The tour starts by Jökulsárlón Glacier lagoon, from there we will drive to the glacier edge and prepare for the ice caving. Once in the ice cave you will have about 45 minutes to explore the cave. Daily departures from October to March.
