It‘s starting again!
This year we have found a new ice cave and even earlier than usual. After scouting the area our guides found this super beautiful blue ice cave.
Iceland’s incredible glacier ice caves move or completely disappear with the shifting ice sheet each year. In the area where we found the new ice cave, there used to be another ice cave there called Waterfall Ice Cave. It has melted away and disappeared.
The Crystal Ice Cave Adventure Tour is easy, the walk to the ice cave takes 30-40 minutes (1.5 km) each way. In every group, we have a maximum of 12 passengers.
The tour starts from our meeting point in Hali, which is located only 15 minutes from Jökulsárlón – Glacier Lagoon.
From Hali, it takes us 30 minutes to drive to the parking lot at Breiðarmerkurjökull, from there the 30-40 minute walk start and we get to spend 30 minutes in the cave. That should be enough to get the perfect picture! In total, the tour can take 3-4 hours.
On this tour we will not walk on the glacier, all the walk will be done on a gravel path.
Over the years, the famous Crystal Ice Cave Iceland has become one of the country’s most popular tourist attractions. We will most likely not be the only group visiting the ice cave. Other tour companies bring guests to visit the cave which can cause it to be crowded.
The beautiful ice caves are very dangerous if you are not accompanied by a trained guide that knows the glacier from inside out, you should not go there by yourself. The caves should never be entered without a glacier guide and proper safety gear. Before going into the ice cave with a tour operator, you are provided with a safety helmet and crampons for walking.
