A small-group day tour from Vík to the spectacular natural ice cave in South Iceland.
On this 4 hour tour you will explore a natural ice cave on Kötlujökull, an outlet glacier of Mýrdalsjökull. You will be picked up by your experienced driver guide in Vík (The Ice Cave Café, Icewear store) in a modified 4x4 vehicle. From there, you head east and go off the highway to a road only accessible by a modified 4x4. During the drive you can take your time to enjoy the stunning contrasts of the black sands and green mountains that make Icelandic nature so unique. At the end of the road you will be greeted by an ash covered wall of ice that has formed from past eruptions. As you get closer to this ice wall an opening will appear. Your expert guide will lead you safely into the glacier to start exploring. Once inside, you will experience enchanting blue ice walls and a truly mesmerizing ice cave. Following your adventure in the cave, you will head back to Vík with memories to last you a lifetime.
