Did you know that ice caves are the final stage in the life of a glacier?  As the glacier starts melting a river forms and carves out one of nature’s most beautiful sculptures.  Iceland has 13 glaciers throughout the country full of ice caves just waiting to be explored.  In Iceland typically our ice cave season is between December-March (in hopes of extending into April and even into summer depends on conditions).
