Húsafell: Langjökulll Glacier Ice Cave Tour

1. Húsafell: Langjökulll Glacier Ice Cave Tour

Experience Iceland’s second-largest glacier from the inside and enjoy the rare sight of blue ice at the heart of an ice cap glacier on this half-day tour.  All tours depart from Húsafell, from where you will catch a shuttle to the Glacier Base Camp, Klaki. You will meet a professional guide and gear up in warm overalls if needed, before boarding a specially-modified glacier truck for the drive up to the cave entrance. Arriving at the cave entrance, head inside the glacier with your guide. The man-made Langjökull Glacier Tunnel is a wonder to behold. 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 walk with you through the glacier's corridors where you will have a chance to learn about geology, the history of glaciers, how they are formed and how they move.

What people are saying about Highlands of Iceland

When you arrive at husafell activity center they are not very helpful, but go outside to the left and you will see the bus. The bus ride takes you on a dirt road to base camp. At base camp you will board a special vehicle and go up on the glacier. The ICE cave was great we enjoyed it very much.

Very great tour on and in the glacier with lots of information about Iceland and the glacier. It would be cool if you could stop at the glacier border and get out ;)

Long transport time from meeting place to ice Cave, but there is still plenty of time in ice Cave! Remember gloves and warm socks that are cold!

Unfortunately the clouds were very low and you couldn't see anything on the glacier but the cave and the guides were good

Well arranged with pick up in Husafell. Guide told enough and the trip through the glacier was a special experience.
