INSIDE THE GLACIER - BUS TOUR
Lifetime Experience. Get deep into the largest man made cave in the world, located on Langjökull glacier. You will see waterfalls, hot springs and ofcourse, the glacier.
This tour takes you to Langjökull glacier for a once in a lifetime adventure deep inside the glacier in some of the world’s largest man made ice caverns. On the way to the ice cave, we will visit the most powerful hot spring in Europe, Deildartunguhver, and the picturesque Hraunfossar waterfalls, a series of waterfalls formed by rivulets streaming out of a lava field.
Lunch break will be taken at a place called Húsafell Bistro before we board the glacier vehicle. The caverns are composed of an extensive system of tunnels and chambers that stretch close to 300 metres into the solid ice cap towards a breathtaking natural Ice Cave at the heart of the glacier.
Making your way inside the glacier you’ll be able to explore various nooks and chambers and walk over a huge ice crevasse on a specially constructed bridge. As you walk further along the tunnel, the ice gets older and its colour gradually changes from white to deep-blue. In every chamber you will find interesting information about the glacier on display and for those who would like to get married in the ice cave there's even a small Ice Chapel!
A complimentary visit to the thermal pool in Húsafell is a perfect ending to this journey of Ice Caves. Please note that during winter season, a visit to the swimming pool might not be possible due to delays in passengers returning from the glacier.

What do I need to bring?
It can get very cold on the glacier, even during summertime. The temperature inside the ice cave is around 0°C so you need to be properly dressed to be comfortable. We recommend layers of clothing, which can be taken off or put on as needed, which may include a vest / thermals, a top, jumper and a warm waterproof and windproof coat.
Suitable footwear is also needed. It could also be wise to wear a hat to keep you warm and a sun cap to protect you from sunburn on sunny days as the ice can reflect sunlight meaning that you can get sunburn easier. Don't forget the camera!
