JOIN US FOR A PRIVATE ICE CAVE TOUR IN ICELAND

We offer private ice cave tour in Iceland with a professional AIMG glacier guide. We are visiting an ice cave in the southeast of Iceland.

Ice cave season is between 15th of November and 31st of March. All the pictures shown here on the website are from last year, the ice caves are never the same as they melt in the summer. We will post new photos as soon as we can scout new caves.

We can suit the tour to your needs, so you can get all the best from it. We can leave early for sunrise tours, arrive before the crowds, camp out for one night or just make extra time for you in the cave to take photos, we can also help you to photograph in the cave.

We are visiting a remote ice cave on our tour, we try to visit the best ice cave available at every time.

Duration of the tour: Normally 6-8 hours (special request can be shorter or longer tours)

Pick up locations: We can pick you up anywhere between Höfn and Jökulsárlón

How much walking: Around 6 kilometers in total, can take from 3-4 hours. Most part of the walking is on a glacier ice and part on rocky surface.

When do we operate the tour: The ice cave season is from the beginning of November till mid of March.

MUST READ: Ice cave tours are weather dependent tours. Your safety is the most important part of the tour for us. Due to weather or dangerous condition we may have to cancel ice cave tours with very short notice. We will always refund you fully in case of cancellation. But we, of course, try to arrange another tour for you instead if possible. Many things can change the conditions of the ice cave in a very short matter of time, therefore we like to be in personal contact with our clients and keep them informed throughout the whole journey from booking until after the tour.
