Langjökull Glacier Ice Cave Classic Tour
- Enjoy a sightseeing tour from Húsafell on Langjökull glacier
- Ride on the glacier in our specially modified glacier vehicles
- Get a guided tour inside the world's largest Ice tunnel
All tours depart from Húsafell. During summer (1st of June to 15th of October) a shuttle transfer is operated from Húsafell. This shuttle transfer has been calculated into the price for this period. During winter (15th of October - 1st of June) glacier trucks depart from Húsafell and then the shuttle transfer is included.
For both periods you will meet a professional guide and gear up in warm overalls if needed, and crampons for your shoes, before boarding a specially modified glacier truck for the drive up to the cave entrance.
Arriving to the cave entrance, head inside the glacier with your guide. The man-made Langjökull Glacier Tunnel is a wonder to behold. The ice is lit up from behind by glowing hues, allowing you to see the layers that have formed over many years. Your guide will walk with you through the glacier's corridors where you get a chance to learn about geology and the history of glaciers, how they are formed and how they move.
This tour takes 3-4 hours and finishes in Húsafell, leaving you free to make your own way back to your accommodation in Reykjavik.
