Classic Ice Cave Experience from Reykjavik with Live Guide and Touch-Screen Audio Guide33 reviews
Your first stop is the Langjökull 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 the stunning blue ice, and hear about the glacier's constant motion. Until very recently, what lies below Langjökull was a mystery, but sometimes bold ideas come to life, and the creation of this man-made ice cave was only possible with 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 Húsafell for lunch (own expense). Then choose between seeing the famous Hraunfossar, a waterfall that flows over lava rock or relax in the small village of Húsafell. Your tour ends with return to Reykjavik terminal.
