On this adventure, we visit more remote Ice cave where it is less crowded. This tour would be recommended for those who want to have the time to photograph and enjoy the amazing natural surroundings. In some cases, we might need to walk on the glacier to get to the Ice Cave.

The tour starts at Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon, where you will meet your guides and prepare for your adventure. Please dress according to weather and be well prepared, as the weather can get very cold. 

The tour can take 4 to 6 hours, depending on the weather. We will start by driving for about 35-45 minutes to the location where we will start the walk towards the glacier. Walk in the wild surroundings where the glacier has formed the nature will take about 40-60 minutes. We will explore and enjoy this area, considered to be quite unique, even on local standards, who come in the summer to enjoy the nature with friends and family. 

After the walk, we will be able to spend a good time in the Ice cave and get the photos that we need. On this tour, we are not in a hurry and try to spend as much time as the group needs and wants to spend, conditions permitting. When everyone has had enough time in the Ice cave we will hike the same way back.

We might need to hike on the glacier itself to get to the Ice Cave. If we need to walk on the glacier we will provide all the equipment for that. If you like photographing we recommend this tour for you.

All the ice caves are naturally made so it is the nature that decides how they are shaped and where they are located. Safety is our priority, and/so we will always choose the best Ice cave for every trip. The drive and the walk to the ice cave can, therefore, be different between days. If nature decides we are not able to go to the ice cave we have other extraordinary alternatives for you.
