The Secret Tour
As everybody seems to be copying our tours this is all we can tell you: We will go from Reykjavik to the best ice cave on the day, and explore the area and elements around it. We are currently monitoring all glaciers that are reachable in one day from Reykjavik.
We will go underground into the Earth via ancient lava tunnels drilled by different volcanic eruptions to discover a magical world, underneath the rugged lava field. We will spend around 1/2 hr in the cave.
We will go into the glacier, into the pure ice that has been there for hundreds of years. You will see a million shades of blue, grey and white, as well as layers of ash from volcanic eruptions, trapped in the ice. We have several ice caves in secret locations (please help us keeping them secret). We promise you it will be the best and most beautiful cave we can find on the day!
We will bathe in pure, warm, geothermal water. Either in the wilderness or in a local pool in the countryside. Outdoor bathing is one of the best things about living in Iceland!
We will, of course, make a lot of random stops at interesting places that will make your soul and camera smile!
Ssssssh don’t tell
We were the first company to take people from Reykjavik to the ice caves in Vatnajokull Glacier, and by that, we almost created a monster.
Everybody started copying us and now the caves are as busy as Central Station. So from now on we will keep our ice cave locations secret to give our guests the best experience possible.
Our team of ice cave guides are monitoring the glaciers all year round and finding new ice caves every month. Glaciers are alive and move with the weather and global warming, so the ice caves can change shape and size daily. So our team is always on the look for new ice caves and other glacier formations to show our guests.
Expect the summer caves to be smaller and less blue, but still a great experience!
Is it safe?
No. Ice caving, hiking, climbing or even skiing is never 100% safe. Safety always comes first on our tours! We have all the gear and experience to make the area safe before entering Ice caves.
All our guides are professionally trained and grew up with Icelandic nature around them. They are used to listening to nature and know how it moves. So always listen to their advice and safety instructions. They will, of course, provide you with all safety equipment too.
