Blue Ice Cave – Super Jeep

Minimum age

6 years old

Difficulty

Easy

Duration

3 hours

Location

The Glacier Lagoon

The tour begins when you meet your expert and friendly guides by the parking lot of Jökulsárlón. They will be waiting for you with a sign by our Super Jeep. After you have entered the vehicle, you’ll drive with your group up on the glacier. 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!

The drive itself is exciting and bumpy, so buckle up! Your 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 “Super Jeep”. Once you get to the home to the caves, you’ll take a short walk through the glacial landscape and learn about the world-famous Vatnajökull glacier and the surrounding areas, Game of Thrones locations and other productions that took place there.

Ice caves are stunning natural phenomena and a must-see for anyone visiting Iceland during wintertime. Before you know it, 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 ice caves vary greatly each season. Our guide decides which cave to visit every day depending on safety and weather conditions. You might be lucky enough and visit other formations such as ice tunnels and crevasses that are made out of blue ice.

Please note
  • Jeans are not recommended for glacier activities. Once it gets wet, it takes a long time to dry, leaving you cold.
  • Ice caves are a dynamic ever-changing natural phenomenon only accessible during winter time when temperatures drop below zero. Each year new unique caves are formed in different areas of the glacier. We visit a naturally formed ice cave during this tour. The photos on our website and social medias are from this winter season, but the ice cave we visit might have changed due to the dynamic nature of these formations.
