This Katla Ice Cave tour will take you to one of the most fascinating places in Iceland.

We’ll begin Katla Ice Cave Tour from Reykjavik. You will be picked up in a Mini-bus from central Reykjavik.

After you are picked up the adventure is ready to start!

We will be driving on road number 1, but will soon turn to no-man´s-land! You will be amazed as we drive by the mountains and glaciers all around us.

You will be taken up to the base of the Kötlujökull glacier, where the view in front of you will be simply breathtaking: layers of different colored ice creating a striped pattern on the glacier will reveal thousands of years of history right before your eyes!

Your knowledgeable guide will tell you all about it and about the Katla Ice Cave itself that you will visit shortly afterward a small hike. This will be both educating and exciting experience all at once!

On the way back to the capital, we will stop by the waterfalls Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss. Skógafoss is located in the beautiful Skógar area and is also the inspiration to dozens of folklore tales. We will also stop at the stunning Seljalandsfoss waterfall, on the Seljalands River which flows all the way down from the famous volcano, Eyjafjallajökull!

We’ll arrive back in Reykjavik around 8:00 p.m.
