Iceland Glacier Ice Cave Tours

Glacier Ice Caves in Iceland

Full day experiences are our specialty!

Vatnajökull glacier’s ice caves are world renowned for their incredible ice quality. It’s one of the most impressive natural materials you’ll ever see! Often the glacier ice caves are the single reason many people come to Iceland during the winter, year on year due to their ever-changing nature.

Vatnajökull is Europe’s largest glacier, and at Ice Guardians, we provide immersive and interactive experiences on it, and with ice caves – in and under it.

To achieve this, we only offer full-day ice cave trips combined with glacier hikes ourselves. Fear not for those not accustomed to long days outdoors in mixed conditions we have partnered with our friends & local operators to provide shorter experiences too.

Due to the length of our own full-day trips, and the low ratio of guests to guide/s, you can expect to explore far beyond the most crowded areas.

On one of our full-day Vatnajökull glacier hikes and ice cave visit, you will witness otherworldly ice formations that few others will ever see, let alone venture into.

If you’re unsure whether to join us at Ice Guardians or go with another operator, we wrote a blog article where we breakdown about how to choose an ice cave tour in Iceland. Read here.

And if you have any questions for us about our Iceland glacier tours, please feel free to get in touch.
