Epic Adventure to Askur Ice Cave: Mountain Truck Ride and Glacier Exploration

Your adventure starts at the Myrdalsjökull Base Camp, a scenic 2-hour and 15-minute drive from Reykjavík. Known as the nearest and most accessible ice cave to the capital, its stunning beauty is ready to be explored. From our base, you’ll embark on a 20-30 minute mountain truck ride up to the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, followed by a brief 10-15 minute walk to the cave.

Upon arrival, you'll be equipped with safety gear and given detailed information to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. Led by our expertly trained glacier guide, you'll delve into an exciting exploration, venturing deep into the glacier. Inside, the cave reveals its impressive natural formations. The mostly flat pathway, composed of snow, ice, and small rocks, ensures that no climbing is required, making the journey accessible to everyone.

This adventure includes a 45-60 minute glacier exploration, followed by a short walk back to the truck and a 20-30 minute drive back to base camp. As the only tour operator with access to this hidden treasure, we offer an exclusive journey into a world few have witnessed.
