Map for The Ice Cave and Northern Lights Experience tour
The famous Glacier Lagoon and the Diamond Ice-Beach, a visit to a natural Ice Cave, Seljalandsfoss Waterfall and a Northern Light’s search - all in one long day! An excellent option for people who have limited time but would like to see these amazing attractions.
The tour starts with a 07:30 pick up at your hotel or at a nearby bus stop and you are in for a very long but breathtaking day. You will be sitting in a comfortable luxury mini-bus or jeep, enjoying all the best highlights that the south coast has to offer in one package.

You will drive towards Jökulsárlón, glacier lagoon. It‘s a part of the Vatnajökull national park and appeared in 1950 due to the melting of Breiđamerkurjökull glacier. Here you will see icebergs floating in the lagoon and might even see a seal from time to time. On the other side of Highway 1 you‘ll walk down to the Diamond beach where icebergs sit on the black sand beach of Breiđamerkursandur, having washed upon shore, glowing like crystals. Truly a unique experience and maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Once you have enjoyed viewing the ice bergs at the lagoon and beach you will be driven to the ice cave where you will be provided with safety gear and lights before you enter the cave.

After the ice cave you will head back to Reykjavík and take the final scheduled stop, Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you might have the option of walking behind the cascade. During the winter months, the waterfall is lit up and provides great photo opportunities, especially if the Northern lights appear. As the Northern lights can be very elusive, their sighting cannot be guaranteed but if conditions offer a glimpse of hope the drive back to the city is a constant Northern lights hunt.

Tour duration - You can expect the tour to take 14-16 hours so bringing snack for the ride is a good idea, the driver will also be making short stops during the tour at service stations. You can expect to be back in Reykjavik city shortly after midnight.

Clothing - Make sure you’re dressed well, hiking boots are recommended and multi layers of clothing as the temperature can be very low in the ice cave and around the lagoon.

Please note - As your safety is our number one concern we will make every effort to find the best suited and safest ice caves at each time but as the conditions around and in the glacier, are constantly changing and being shaped by the elements it’s not possible to guarantee that entrance to the ice caves. If such unfortunate situations arise we will make every effort to make other stops, and your experience more enjoyable. As the Northern lights can be very elusive, their sighting cannot be guaranteed but if conditions offer a glimpse of hope we will go on a Northern lights hunt. If we are unable to visit the ice cave there will be a refund in the amount of 10.000.- ISK. If the tour is cancelled by us there is a full refund.
