Itinerary

Information

This tour departs from the glacier edge and offers guests the chance to venture into a giant, 953sq/km glacier upon Iceland’s second-largest glacier, Langjökull. Tourists from all over the world are drawn to the vast endlessness of pure white in Iceland. What is seemingly infinite is just a fraction of the dramatic landscape on the island. Experience the remoteness of an Ice Cap glacier that is home to the new Langjokull Ice Cave. This man-made ice cave high on Langjökull is Iceland’s newest attraction and your chance to enter a world of glacial ice.

With a stunning surrounding environment and informative guides, this tour offers a unique experience for the whole family to enjoy!

You can meet us at Husafell Center all year round.
During summer you can also meet us at Klaki Basecamp which is located closer to the glacier. Please note that the road leading to Klaki is a gravel road, so a 4x4 vehicle is recommended. Detailed driving instructions will be available on your ticket upon booking.
Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled departure time.

This tour is also available as a day tour, with pick up in Reykjavík. Please select the option you prefer in the booking widget.

Yes, we do. Langjökull Ice Cave is a magical experience, the tour has no minimum age and is a wonderful option for the whole family. Whale Watching with our partner company Elding has been a favourite with families traveling with young children, these guys have a great success rate in seeing whales (upwards of 98% in the summertime).

Another option would be the Landmannalaugar Safari on this tour you get to explore parts of the Icelandic highlands and bathe in natural hot springs.

We’ve partnered with the Kolviður Fund in a new carbon offsetting program, which passengers can select to participate in at the time of booking.

The Kolviður Fund is the oldest, most respected carbon offsetting program in Iceland. With your support, one tree will be planted in special Kolviður forests in Iceland to carbon offset your tour with us.

Kolviður forests are strategically planted to absorb the maximum amount of CO2 and the forests are protected for a minimum of 60 years. During their lifetime the trees absorb carbon and store it in their root system, trunk, and branches. Trees also prevent soil erosion and maintain storage of carbon in the soil.
