Askur Ice Cave & Snowmobile Adventure from Reykjavík
Discover the grandeur of Iceland's South Coast with a comprehensive tour that includes a visit to the country's newly found natural ice cave, and two most famous watefalls: Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss.
Tour code: SRE88
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. Here, you'll embark on an exciting 20-minute Mountain Truck ride through beautiful landscapes. Then, you'll hop on a snowmobile to continue the ride to the cave entrance. No prior experience in snowmobiling is needed, but one of you and your travel partner must possess a valid driver's license to operate it.
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.
