ABOUT THE TOUR
If you prefer to explore Iceland on your own schedule, or with your own group, our Private Ice Cave Tours are a unique and special way to experience one of Iceland’s greatest natural wonders.
We can host groups of up to eight guests on a private ice cave tour in South Iceland. We can even collect you directly from your accommodation in Vik, Reykjavik, or anywhere in between.
Our adventure will begin with a super jeep ride through some truly spectacular scenery, as we wind our way through the epic landscape of South Iceland on our way to a secret ice cave. As always on a Katlatrack tour, our aim is to give you a unique offbeat experience and show you a side of Iceland that you won’t ever see on the mainstream tours. We’ll enter private land and take the back roads through the vivid green mountains surrounding Vik, before arriving at the foot of the glacier.
Once at the glacier, your local Ice Cave Guide will provide the group with a full safety briefing before fitting everyone up with some of our loan equipment (a helmet, head lamp and some crampons for your shoes). We’ll then take an easy 5 to 10 minute hike to the ice cave.
Our local guides are always scouting for new, secret ice caves, so you can be sure of seeing the best of these wild and wonderful creations that our current landscape has to offer! Ice caves are constantly melting and reforming throughout the seasons, so this really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit a cave before it disappears forever. Thanks to our local knowledge and expertise, we were the first tour company to offer the chance to experience an ice cave year round.
We’ll spend 45 to 60 minutes exploring the cave, where you’ll see magnificent shades of white, black and even blue ice! There will be plenty of opportunities to take photos, ask questions and learn all about these magnificent structures from your local guide.
After leaving the ice cave, we have one last surprise in store! As we make our way home, we’ll stop at a private black sand beach, where you can jump out of the super jeep and leave your own footprints in the volcanic sand of this beautiful, secluded beach.
This is a truly memorable way to experience Iceland, made all the more special when shared with your own private group.
