  • Katla Ice Cave and Super Jeep Tour from Reykjavik/Vik

    1. Katla Ice Cave and Super Jeep Tour from Reykjavik/Vik

    Your guide will pick you up in Reykjavik or Vik in a Super Jeep and you’ll soon experience breathtaking views as you drive along the country's spectacular south coast. Along the way you will visit the small town of Vík and then take a turn onto a rural road only accessible by Super Jeep. Stop at Kötlujökull Glacier, where you’ll find a stunning ice cave to explore. Admire the interior of the magnificent ice cave with an experienced guide. Head back to the Super Jeep for the return drive to Reykjavik or Vik. On the way back you'll stop to take in the popular Skógafoss waterfall.

    I did not know what to expect from this experience, but I thoroughly enjoyed myself: I liked the fact that we not only did this activity but bookended the day with a visit to both Skogafoss waterfall (MY FAVOURITE PLACE ON EARTH) and Seljandsfoss waterfall. Those were some nice surprises (I didn't know those stops were a part of the package!). I always rent a car when I'm in Iceland but I did enjoy being driven around for a day (was a nice break). The van was super comfortable and I met some lovely people - one of whom I will probably be traveling back to Iceland with next year (I'm from Canada, she's from Germany)! I suggest bringing hiking boots for this adventure - crampons are good for most any shoe but you are on a glacier for part of this experience and so it's better to have the stability of a good boot than not.

  • From Reykjavik: Hot Spring, Ice Cave & Snowmobile Tour

    2. From Reykjavik: Hot Spring, Ice Cave & Snowmobile Tour

    Driving through the Geysir Hot Spring area with its boiling mud pits and spouting hot springs, you will head straight toward Langjökull Glacier for a snowmobile tour. The surrounding snowfields will take your breath away while you enjoy the thrill of dashing across Europe’s second largest glacier. Continue to a glacial ice cave, going over 300 feet deep into the ancient ice. Marvel at the layers of ash from past volcanic eruptions. For your last stop of the day tour in Iceland, be taken near the small village of Flúðir. Ease into a secret outdoor lagoon, a natural hot spring, for a luxurious bath to soothe all your cares away.

    Snow mobile was a lot of fun. We did not get to go to the ice cave. Not really an explanation of why, the guide said people were checking it out and we never heard anymore. The secret lagoon was good, nice and warm. Very crowded for a winter's afternoon.

  • Langjokull Glacier: Snowmobile & Natural Ice Cave Tour

    3. Langjokull Glacier: Snowmobile & Natural Ice Cave Tour

    Wow, Wow, Wow! I highly recommend this tour. It was so fun! I highly recommend going. The trucks you ride in to get to the cave is unique and fun to ride in.

What an amazing time we had as a group with David leading the way! We got to see so much in such a short time and got lifetime images will never forget. Only thing that would have been better would have been having time to go down to the Studagil Canyon.

The tour (about 3 hours) was not too strenuous and you got a very good introduction to the material, behavior and dangers. The guide was available for all questions and he was still helpful with questions outside of the tour beyond his working hours.
