Ice Caves and the Diamond Beach

October - April

Ice Caves and the Diamond Beach

€ 690

Explore the thrilling ice caves of Vatnajökull and Jökulsárlón’s glittering diamond beach.

Carved by nature, the ice caves of Vatnajökull have a unique beauty and atmosphere. This breathtaking guided tour is your chance to explore 2-3 of these ever-changing natural structures, which form in new ways each year.

You’ll fly to Höfn in Hornafjörður and head straight for the world-famous Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon. Here ice diamonds line the velvet-black beach, as small icebergs break off from the mighty glacier. Perfect for a photo break.

Next you’ll take a three-hour tour of the magnificent ice caves – an enclosed world of crystal colours and structures formed by the breathtaking chaos of nature.

We strongly recommend warm clothing, appropriate footwear and bringing snacks or sandwiches with you. Note that tours may vary due to weather or other circumstances.
