The ice tunnel is located in the giant and the second biggest glacier in Europe 953sq/km Langjökull glacier.

Once we´re inside, you will experience some things like you´ve never seen and probably won´t experience again, blue ice, chapel, bridge over a huge ice crack and amazing sights that will make your visit to Iceland unforgettable.
