Explore the man made Ice Cave of Langjokull and and the largest Lava Cave in Iceland, Vidgelmir.

Into Ice & Lava tour is a chance to get both beneath the surface of a glacier and below the earth in a lava cave. We explore the man made Ice Cave of Langjokull and the largest Lava Cave in Iceland, Vidgelmir. It is an amazing opportunity to get to know Iceland inside and out in the beautiful area of Borgardjordur.

Step on board the all new bus fleet, equipped with computer tablets in each seat. On the tablets you can use the GPS Sensitive In Bus Audio Guide, providing interesting facts and information about Iceland and the places included in the tour in 10 languages. Onboard you will find a host who will be happy to assist you during the day. The buses are also equipped with USB chargers and free WiFi.    

You soon learn that in Iceland everything is possible as you step aboard one of the huge specially modified monster trucks and drive up the glacier to the Ice Cave. Before you know it, you find yourself standing on top of an ice cap and about to begin your descent down below the surface of the glacier to explore what lies beneath.  

The Ice Cave is a man made glacier cave high up in the remote highlands of Iceland. During this magical journey deep within the glacier, you will learn how global warming has begun to affect the glacial environment. You also get to see stunning blue glacier ice and wonderful glacier formations. The glacier is in constant motion and we can witness that movement of nature itself firsthand. The temperature inside the glacier is usually around zero degrees Celsius or 32 Fahrenheit.

After the ice cave tour we get back onboard the glacier truck and head back down. After lunch break at Hotel Husafell we go on to explore the mightiest lava cave in Iceland, Vidgelmir. Your cave guide will show and explain the amazing features of the cave including the wonderful colours, lava stalactites and stalagmites. The unique wooden walkway with railings and remotely operated lighting make this tour easily accessible and highly enjoyable. After the cave adventure we take the scenic route back to Reykjavik.
