In the fall each year, we start looking for good ice caves for the winter tours. Normally we find several different caves, on the south side of Vatnajokull glacier; some are very stable, but others are less safe or even dangerous to enter, even though they are very beautiful.
Some of the caves are only accessible in below zero conditions, so we will choose each day which ice cave will best suit the tour. This depends on the time of winter, time of day, weather and other conditions at the time.
We always go to the most interesting and stunning ice cave accessible at each time, to give you the most amazing experience available.

- How far we need to walk, to reach the cave (can sometimes be up to 1 km)
- How complicated the cave is
We are located 350 km (4 1/2 hour drive in summer) east of Reykjavík, via road 1. Please note that in icy winter conditions the travel time can be much longer. We recommend that you stay in a hotel or guesthouse in southeast Iceland the night before the trip.
