  • Ice Cave by Katla Volcano Super Jeep from Vik

    1. Ice Cave by Katla Volcano Super Jeep from Vik

    From Vík, take a jeep ride to the natural ice cave at Mýrdalsjökull Glacier, situated below the Katla volcano. Equipped with crampons and a helmet, you’ll be ready to explore this natural phenomenon. Wander through the cave and marvel at spectacular color combinations of blue, gray and black, as your guide tells you about the glacier and the ice cave’s formation.

    I really enjoyed the glacier walk. I wish that the group was smaller so we didn’t have to wait for groups to go inside the cave. If we had been a group of 10-15 we would only have to wait for 2 groups instead of the 4-5 we had to stand and wait for. I also wish that a bit more context was given - I knew we would be going to the glacier by jeep but I would have liked to know how long it would take for us to walk out to the glacier itself. I also think having clothing that the tour guides recommend would be good to have - I know it says to bring winter clothes and rain gear but I would have loved specifics so I could have been a little more prepared. Definitely recommend though! Mike and Sven were great guides and I learned a lot. Beautiful unique scenery too.

  • Katla Ice Cave and Super Jeep Tour from Reykjavik/Vik

    2. Katla Ice Cave and Super Jeep Tour from Reykjavik/Vik

    Your guide will pick you up in Reykjavik or Vik in a Super Jeep and you’ll soon experience breathtaking views as you drive along the country's spectacular south coast. Along the way you will visit the small town of Vík and then take a turn onto a rural road only accessible by Super Jeep. Stop at Kötlujökull Glacier, where you’ll find a stunning ice cave to explore. Admire the interior of the magnificent ice cave with an experienced guide. Head back to the Super Jeep for the return drive to Reykjavik or Vik. On the way back you'll stop to take in the popular Skógafoss waterfall.

    I did not know what to expect from this experience, but I thoroughly enjoyed myself: I liked the fact that we not only did this activity but bookended the day with a visit to both Skogafoss waterfall (MY FAVOURITE PLACE ON EARTH) and Seljandsfoss waterfall. Those were some nice surprises (I didn't know those stops were a part of the package!). I always rent a car when I'm in Iceland but I did enjoy being driven around for a day (was a nice break). The van was super comfortable and I met some lovely people - one of whom I will probably be traveling back to Iceland with next year (I'm from Canada, she's from Germany)! I suggest bringing hiking boots for this adventure - crampons are good for most any shoe but you are on a glacier for part of this experience and so it's better to have the stability of a good boot than not.

The guide will go through the details of how to operate the snowmobile, which is quite easy.

    First I want to say, when booking on this website, be sure to notice that you can change the currency rate on a tab in the upper corner, I did not see this and was charged more than expected. Luckily, I was able to speak with the customer service team and they refunded me based on my currency that I had thought I was paying, which was very good of them and much appreciated. The experience was amazing! We went in December and had a great weather day, although windy and chilly but great day for a ride. You are given zip up suits, gloves and a helmet. The cons: The staff wasn’t the friendliest and wish we could have snowmobiled a little more off course, but I understand the safety of it. The ice cave was cool but small so you don’t spend much time in there. Overall, it was a lot of fun and an amazing experience, how many people can say They snowmobiled on a glacier?!!

The tour (about 3 hours) was not too strenuous and you got a very good introduction to the material, behavior and dangers. The guide was available for all questions and he was still helpful with questions outside of the tour beyond his working hours.

Stunning views and thrilling, exciting activities. No matter the weather, this trip is an amazing time. Ole was the bomb as a tour guide

Sven was a great guide & the experience was one of a kind! Beautiful scenery.
