Small Group Ice Caving Tour Inside Vatnajokull Glacier

3 h
Small Group
About this activity
Your ice caving adventure begins in Skaftafell National Park, where you‘ll meet your glacier guide and jump on one of the buses for a scenic 15 minute ride to Falljökull Glacier. During the ride you‘ll be able to see the impressive mountains that line up the southern edge of Europe‘s largest glacier, the Vatnajökull Glacier. Once there, your guide will assist you in gearing up and getting ready for your glacier hiking and ice caving adventure, providing you with crampons to walk on the ice as well as all necessary glacier gear.

Your hike will start at the bottom of the glacier carved valley where your guide will explain the unique features of the fascinating glacier tongue and its surroundings. During your hike you will explore the lower part of the glacier visiting multiple, relatively small ice caves along the way with many great photo opportunities. After exploring all that the glacier has to offer, you will then head back to the bus which will take you back to Skaftafell National Park, concluding your adventure.

Absolutely amazing experience. The guides were great, very accommodating, and provided lots of interesting information. The title of this tour is a little misleading as this was fundamentally a glacier hike/climb with a relatively quick stop-off into a small-ish ice cave. That being said, we weren't the least bit disappointed. The hiking was amazing and unlike anything we'd ever done. You will absolutely want waterproof boots, waterproof pants e.g. snow pants and jacket as you're out in the snow/rain/elements for a few hours straight. Additional gear is available from the company to borrow/purchase on-site if you show up underprepared. Activity level was moderate. Anyone who is able to walk for a few hours straight should have no problem whatsoever keeping up, and the guides do a great job of keeping everyone together.
