An unforgettable opportunity to explore the the magical and mysterious netherworld of Langjökull glacier, as well as see some beautiful Icelandic nature.
SEE THE GLACIER! STAND ON THE GLACIER! GO INTO THE GLACIER!
We depart early from Reykjavík city, heading for the Borgarfjörður region to get the crisp morning view of our destination, the Langjökull Glacier. Langjökull is 953 sq/km, making it the second largest glacier in the country.
You soon discover that in Iceland everything is possible – before you know it you find yourself standing on top of a vast ice-cap, ready to descend into the glacier and explore its icy netherworld.
To get to the Ice Cave we ride in a huge specially-modified truck. The Ice Tunnel and Cave are man-made and located high up in a remote area of the glacier in the very heart of Iceland. Your guide will explain to you how global warming has now started to impact on the glacial environment.
Your Ice Cave guide will then take you on an amazing journey, deep within the glacier where you can see the stunning blue-hued ice. The glacier is in constant motion and here we can literally see that movement first hand.
Until very recently what lay beneath the surface of Langjökull was a mystery. Sometimes with vision and determination bold ideas can become a reality. The realisation of this seemingly crazy notion of boring an ice tunnel deep into the glacier only became possible through the combined efforts of the country´s top engineers and geophysicists. The temperature inside the glacier is usually around zero degrees Celsius or 32 Fahrenheit.
Back on the surface we jump aboard the welcome warmth of the glacier truck. We eat lunch at the stunning Hotel Húsafell and then we continue our tour of the Borgarfjörður valley. We get to see Hraunfossar, a beautiful lava waterfall almost a mile long gushing through a wall of lava.
