What to expect

You will depart early morning from Reykjavík and get the crisp morning view of the Langjökull Glacier, which is the destination. Langjökull is 953 sq/km, making it the second-largest glacier in the country.

You'll soon discover that in Iceland everything is possible - before you know it you find yourself standing on top of a vast ice-cap, ready to descend into the glacier and explore its icy netherworld.To get to the Ice Cave you will ride in a specially-modified truck. The Ice Tunnel and Cave are man-made and located high up in a remote area of the glacier in the very heart of Iceland.

Your guide will then take you on an amazing journey, deep within the glacier where you can see the stunning blue-hued ice. The glacier is in a constant state of motion and here you can literally see that movement first hand. Until very recently, what lay beneath the surface of Langjökull was a mystery. Sometimes with vision and determination bold ideas can become a reality. The realization of this seemingly crazy notion of boring an ice tunnel deep into the glacier only became possible through the combined efforts of the country´s top engineers and geophysicists.

The temperature inside the glacier is around freezing temperatures, 0° Celsius or 32° Fahrenheit. Back on top of the surface of the glacier, you will jump aboard to the welcome warmth of the truck. The tour will stop to eat lunch at the stunning Hotel Húsafell and you can choose between seeing the famous Hraunfossar waterfalls or relax in the thermal pool in the small village of Húsafell (admission included).

This is truly a day to remember.
