What to expect

After you are picked up the adventure is ready to start!


Your guide will be driving on road number 1, but it will soon turn to no-man´s-land! You will be amazed as you drive by the mountains and with glaciers all surrounding you.
You will be taken up to the base of Kötlujökull glacier, where the view in front of you will be simply breathtaking: layers of different colored ice creating a striped pattern on the glacier will reveal thousands of years of history right before your eyes!
Your knowledgeable guide will tell you all about it and about the Ice Cave itself, that shortly after you will go on a small hike to arrive.

On the way back to the capital, your group will stop by the waterfalls Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss. Skógafoss is located in the beautiful Skógar area and is also the inspiration to dozens of folklore tales. You will also stop at the stunning Seljalandsfoss waterfall, on the Seljalands River which flows all the way down from the famous volcano, Eyjafjallajökull!

At the end of the tour, you will arrive back in Reykjavik at around 8.00pm.
