Ice Cave in Langjokull glacier Iceland

Trip ID: IS68

Tour duration: 11 hours

We depart early from Reykjavík city and get the crisp morning view of the Langjökull Glacier, which is our destination. Langjökull is 953 sq/km, making it the second largest glacier in the country.

You soon discover that in Iceland everything is possible - before you know it you find yourself standing on top of a vast ice-cap, ready to descend into the glacier and explore its icy netherworld.To get to the Ice Cave we ride in a huge specially-modified truck. The Ice Tunnel and Cave are man-made and located high up in a remote area of the glacier in the very heart of Iceland. Your guide will explain to you how global warming has now started to impact on the glacial environment.
 
Your guide will then take you on an amazing journey, deep within the glacier where you can see the stunning blue-hued ice. The glacier is in constant motion and here we can literally see that movement  first hand.Until very recently what lay beneath the surface of Langjökull was a mystery. Sometimes with vision and determination, bold ideas can become a reality. The realization of this seemingly crazy notion of boring an ice tunnel deep into the glacier only became possible through the combined efforts of the country´s top engineers and geophysicists. 
 
The temperature inside the glacier is usually around zero degrees Celsius or 32 Fahrenheit. Back on top of the surface of the glacier, we jump aboard to the welcome warmth of the truck. We eat lunch at the stunning Hotel Húsafell and you can choose between seeing the famous Hraunfossar waterfalls or relax in the thermal pool in the small village of Húsafell (admission included) 
This is truly a day to remember.
