Dragon Glass Katla Ice Cave Tour From Reykjavik
US$233.95
Overview
The Kötlujökull glacier lies in the frozen ice fields of Iceland, with rugged terrain making access difficult. On this full-day tour, spin through the icy countryside by powerful 4x4 vehicle and visit the beautiful Dragon Glass Katla ice cave. With your guide to lead the way and round-trip travel from Reykjavik included, explore the cave and take in the mighty Skogafoss waterfall—considered among southern Iceland’s top natural attractions.
What to Expect

Your adventure starts with a morning pick up from authorized Reykjavik pick up points. From the Capital you will head towards the magical South Coast of Iceland that holds many of the land's most stunning sights. On your way you will pass charming little villages and unique landscape before reaching the small town of Vik. There the last participants will be picked up before you continue your drive east. Arriving at a rural road only passable by super trucks you will experience a super truck ride to the roots of Kotlujokull glacier. Now it is time to put on crampons and walk towards the ice cave. Prepare to step foot in a movie-like scene as you admire the epic blue colors and unique layers of the glacier. You will see how the glacier opens up between blue and black ice walls providing you with a stunning entrance to the ice cave of Katla. One in side you will see the true beauty of the cave created by the ever so powerful mother nature. The cave will leave you breathless with its beauty as you walk around, taking your time to enjoy all that the cave has to offer. Your certified glacier guide will provide you with expert information about the ice cave before you leave the cave and head back to Reykjavik where your tour concludes. On your way back you will have the opportunity to see the mighty Skogafoss waterfall, one of the top attractions on the South Coast of Iceland.
