From Reykjavík Blue Ice Cave on The South Coast of Iceland

Now’s the time to visit a blue ice cave on a day tour from Reykjavík during your stay in Iceland!

Conditions are rarely good for ice cave tours in the summer but now that winter is returning, conditions are ideal. Exploring such great natural wonders as a glacier, including crevasses, water cauldrons, ridges and an ice cave, is the perfect combination. On this tour you have the chance to explore an ice cave out in Icelandic nature first hand as well as get in a great moderate glacier hike on one of Iceland’s best known outlet glaciers, Sólheimajökull. After crossing the glacier you’ll enter the blue ice cave. Walking into this frozen world, centuries in the making, is a truly unique experience. This adventure is easily done as a day tour from Reykjavík, just around 2.5 hours away from the city. We will supply the necessary equipment and a guide to ensure your safety.

If you have your own transport you can also choose to meet us on location by Sólheimajökull for this Blue Ice Cave Tour

Please note: Ice cave tours are dependent on the weather. For your safety, tours may be cancelled in the case of unfavorable weather conditions. We will update our guests as soon as possible if a tour has been cancelled due to weather. In some cases we might need to change the tour to a longer glacier walk instead.
