Tunnel in the Ice Cap
This tour booking is for those who have a rental car, preferably a 4x4, though the roads marked on the map are allowed for 2WD. See FAQs. The drive from Reykjavik should take about 3 hours, and there's a road toll after the subaquatic tunnel of Hvalfjorður Fjord.
In the summertime you should arrive at Base Camp at least 20 minutes prior to tour departure. Then we board the 8-wheel-drive monster truck and drive for about half an hour on the ice cap, until we reach the entrance to the ice tunnel.
If you are arriving in winter, the meeting point is at Husafell (Marked C on this map) an hour before departure.
We will spend about 50 minutes exploring the tunnels, the crevasses, moulins (glacier mills), running water, ice layers and space between them, different types of snow and ice, and how the glacier evolves.
We will have the rare oportunity to see normal snow turn into a different type: crust of snow, and then we see that type become glacier ice. On any other location there's but pure ice.
- See the beautiful ice in the heart of the glacier.
- Experience the awesome ice cap glacial environment.
- Ride in a Monster 8-Wheel-Drive Glacier Truck.
While there are a few man-made ice tunnels and caves in various places around the world, there is nothing quite like Ice Cave Iceland, either high up in a remote area of a glacier, or on such a scale.
Never before has anyone been able to see the beautiful glacial-ice at the heart of a glacier. It is not quite a Jules Verne journey to the centre of the earth, or even to the absolute centre of the glacier, but it feels like an exciting and magical journey, deep within the glacier, and it is deep enough to reach another world, a world of magnificent, stunning glacial-ice.
Getting Married Inside the Cave
Marriage ceremonies may take place inside an Icelandic glacier. There are nonconfessional premises inside this ice cave which may be booked for a wedding. The premises are quite large, equipped with wooden benches.
Can I drive there on a normal 2WD?
The last section of your drive are roads 550 and 551 which lead to Base Camp (see map), and are gravel roads. They are listed simply as a Secondary Roads, so car rental contracts are valid while driving there (but no 2WD may drive more of the 550 road than shown on the map).
Note that many of the small cars have low clearance, and damage to the undercarriage is not covered by any car insurance.
How do we get married in that ice cave?
