Activity description

Jump in the Super Jeep, strap on your crampons, and step into the majestic Myrdalsjokull glacier in this exciting ice cave tour from Vík.

Katla volcano sits inside the famous glacier Mýrdalsjökull. In recent years it has slowly crawled down from the highlands, creating stunning natural ice caves! Your adventure kicks off in the comfort and excitement of a Super Jeep as you drive to the natural ice cave.

You will come to a stop right in front of the Kötlujökull glacier, a sight you cannot miss with its amazing blue colors and glacier ice layers. Your guide will go over all of the safety details you need to know and will provide you with crampons to walk on the ice. Making your way to the ice cave, everywhere you look you will see glistening ice and snow! Take your time and admire the view before returning back out of this wonderland to the Kötlujökull mountains. If smaller ice caves can be found, your guide will lead the way for more exploration.

Back in the Super Jeep, you will head to the meeting point in Vík. During the winter time, this drive is exceptionally beautiful as you will witness the sun beginning to descend behind the mountains, creating a magical wintery sunset.
