At the location, your journey begins with a convenient transfer that transports you from Mýrdalsjökull Base Camp to the awe-inspiring Mýrdalsjökull glacier, which takes 20 - 30 minutes.

Next, you'll hop on a snowmobile and drive to the ice cave. There is no need for a snowmobiling experience. However, you'll share a snowmobile with your travel partner and one of you must have a valid driving license.

Led by experienced and knowledgeable guides, you'll embark on a captivating journey through an ice caves, uniquely formed by the natural forces that shape the glacier where we travel 200 meters into the Ice Cave. Marvel at the glistening blue hues and intricate ice formations that create a magical, otherworldly atmosphere.

The unique conditions within the caves provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for photography enthusiasts to capture the ethereal beauty of this frozen landscape.

This tour is suitable for adventurers of all levels, and no prior experience is required. The majority of the journey involves walking on a mostly level terrain, featuring a combination of snow, ice, and rocks. Immerse yourself in the surreal beauty of Mýrdalsjökull and create lasting memories as you explore the hidden treasures within its icy depths.

After your ice cave adventure, enjoy a mountain truck transfer back to base camp, reflecting on the extraordinary experience you've had beneath the surface of one of Iceland's most remarkable glaciers. You'll be equipped with all the necessary gear for a safe and comfortable exploration

Nature's showstoppers

Among the stops on this tour are the gorgeous Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls. Seljalandsfoss is part of the Seljalandsá river, which has its origins in Eyjafjallajökull glacier. What makes Seljalandsfoss so famous and interesting is that you can walk behind it. We recommend you bring either a raincoat or a waterproof coat along if you want to stroll behind it which we of course highly recommend.

Skógafoss, another famous Icelandic waterfall, is the starting point of the Fimmvörðuháls walk over to Þórsmörk. This most picturesque of all waterfalls is something of a film star, having been used as a backdrop in films such as Thor: The Dark World and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
