Ice Caves in Vatnajokull glacier

Vatnajokull National Park is Europe´s largest national park. It is 13.600 square kilometers in size and covers over 13% of Iceland´s surface. Over half of the national park is a glacier where you can find the interrelationship between the forces of frost, fire and water. The Vatnajokull glacier occupies vast highlands in the Southeast comprising 8,300 square kilometers. The western half lies within the active volcanic zone and its south­ern margin is fringed by high mountains, cut by numerous valleys. Quite a few glacier snouts flow down onto the lower lying areas and discharge a great volume of water.

We will visit magnificent ice caves on the south side of Vatnajökull. You will have a new and totally different view of the glacier. The cave we choose from day to day depends on time of winter, time of day, weather and other conditions at the time. We always go to the most interesting cave available at each time
