Embark on an adventurous hike over Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe, and witness the magnificence of the ice caves first-hand.
After leaving Reykjavik, head to the Falljökull glacier tongue from where your ice caving and glacier hiking will start. Accessible only during winters, ice caves are formed when the temperature drops below zero and the waters from the rivers that run beneath the glacier freezes. Each year new caves are formed at different locations. Before stepping across the ice, you will receive a safety briefing from your certified glacier guide, ensuring all your equipment is correctly fastened.
Spend an hour observing the shapes and sizes of the icicles before hiking back over the glacier, through a tricky landscape of rugged ice.
