This  tour gives you the opportunity to walk right into the heart of Langjokull glacier, Europe's second largest, and into the astonishing Ice Cave and tunnel.  Spend 3 nights in charming Reykajvik and enjoy a full day guided tour to the Ice cave, a true modern wonder and an unforgettable experience.

Day 1: Arrival in Reykjavik
On arrival in Reykjavik transfer by airport coach to your hotel. Time to explore this vibrant city on your own. Whilst the city itself is spread out, the city centre is a small area characterised by eclectic and colourful houses, good shopping, dining and drinking. Reykjavík has recently established itself as a haven for food lovers, with numerous restaurants taking advantage of the abundance of local seafood, meat and game. 3 nights in Reykjavik.

Day 2: Ice Cave Tunnel Langjokull Glacier 
Today's adventure starts with pick up from your hotel and a drive through Borgarfjordur, a nature resort area beloved of Icelanders, to the edge of Langjokull glacier. During the drive you'll get the chance to visit Hraunfossar waterfalls, a series of waterfalls formed by rivulets streaming over a distance of about 900 metres out of a lava field. Nearby are the mightily churning hot springs of Deildartunguhver, considered the most powerful in Europe, and providing much of the hot water and geothermal energy to the area.

Then head via dirt roads into the starkly beautiful highland interior of Iceland, crowned by the Langjokull glacier.  When you reach the glacier, it's time to board an 8-wheel glacier truck that will take you on an incredible journey up the glacier to the entrance of the ice tunnel.  From here, walk into the tunnels of the ice cave with your special guide, entering an amazing world of blue ice and fantastic crystal beauty.  You'll see colours of blue you never knew existed, and learn all about how glaciers hide the secrets of history. After an approximately 50-minute visit inside the glacier, it's time to head back to Reykjavik and drop off at your hotel. 

If you are travelling between June and September, on the way back to Reykjavik you´ll take the Kaldidalur highland track, with a stop at the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park, where you'll encounter places of historic significance and incredible natural scenery. 2nd overnight in Reykjavik.

Day 3: City and Surroundings Exploration
Enjoy a day of exploring Reykjavik's many attractions and places of interest such as Harpa Concert Hall and Solfarid sculpture, relax with a cup of coffee, visit one of the many galleries and museums or enjoy some shopping.  3rd overnight in Reykjavik.
