Winter Combo: Blue Ice Cave & Hovercraft

Glacier Lagoon & Blue Ice Cave Tour

AVAILABLE FROM 15TH OF NOVEMBER

2-Days in the beautiful Vatnajökull surrounding

On this tour, we will explore one of the most visited attractions in the area, but with a much cooler way. The tours are centered in Vatnajökull National Park, on Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and Ice Cave in Breiðamerkurjökull.

The activities are divided into two days as it is not possible to do both activities in one day. When booking you can choose which activity you do which day.

On the Blue Ice Cave Adventure Tour, you will experience natural unique ice caves in the wonders of Vatnajökull glacier.  Ice Cave Adventure tour is a medium-hard level, it can take between 4-6 hours. We spend a good amount of time in the ice cave.  Driving to the location can take 25 – 30 minutes and the walk to the ice cave/glacier can take 40 minutes. You should have in mind that the walking on this tour is always in the pure Icelandic nature, on gravel, rough terrain and sometimes on a glacier. Here is a detailed description of the Blue Ice Cave tour. 

The age limit is 16 years old.

The newest activity in the area is the super exciting Hovercraft tours on the beautiful Glacier Lagoon – Jökulsárlón. Enjoy the smooth, safe sailing with an experienced and professional local pilot. Nowhere else in Iceland is this experience available!  The Hovercraft tour is easy, from the meeting point it takes 15 minutes to drive where the Hovercraft tour starts. The hovercraft ride takes about 45-60 minutes but the whole tour takes about 1,5-2 hours

Both tours start from Hali, 13 km east of Jökulsárlón.

During both trips, we recommend wearing warm clothing, warm layers, a jacket, warm socks, boots, woolly hat, and gloves.

Please note! We will not be the only group visiting the ice cave. This has become an incredibly popular winter activity in Iceland. Other tour companies bring guests to visit the cave which can cause it to be crowded. Please expect to share the cave with additional groups.
