Askur Ice Cave & Snowmobile Adventure from Reykjavík
Price from: 44.373  ISK

Your excursion starts with a pickup from Reykjavík, leading you through the breathtaking South Coast of Iceland. During the drive, soak in the country's spectacular scenery, including stark mountains, serene fields, expansive black sand beaches beside the wild Atlantic, and majestic volcanoes topped with ice.

This journey highlights two of Iceland’s most famous waterfalls: Seljalandsfoss, known for its unique feature that allows visitors to walk behind its cascading water, and Skógafoss, notable for its powerful fall and the rainbows that often appear in its mist.

The adventure’s main attraction begins at the Myrdaljökull Glacier Base Camp. Depending on the conditions, you'll either embark on an exciting buggy ride to the ice cave or, if conditions allow, take a 20-minute Mountain Truck ride and then hop on a snowmobile to continue the ride to the cave entrance. No prior experience in buggy driving or snowmobiling is needed, but one of you and your travel partner must possess a valid driver's license to operate the vehicle.

With safety equipment and led by a skilled glacier guide, you'll venture into the depths of Myrdalsjökull. A short walk from the parking area leads you to the Askur ice cave. Inside, marvel at the stunning interplay of colors - deep blues, volcanic blacks, and brilliant whites - in the pristine snow and ancient ice.

Conclude your unforgettable tour with a relaxing return journey home, soaking in Iceland's picturesque landscapes once more.
