Ice Cave Night Tour

At A Glance






November - March

Meet us at Jökulsárlón for this great adventure. We drive to the edge of the glacier and prepare for the exploration. At night the glacier is almost empty of people so we will have a fantastic chance to take in the breathtaking scenery. The ice cave is magical in the dark of the night and if the weather is good we might even get some northern lights to make the night amsolutely perfect. This tour provides the best possible photo opportunities.
