Overview

The adventure of a lifetime awaits you at the Jaki basecamp in the húsafell area where you mount a snowmobile and travel up langjökull glacier to the spectacular ice cave where you will explore the heart of the ice cap, into the glacier.

With a significant portion of its land mass covered in glaciers, Iceland is a country packed with sub-zero adventures and this tour is no exception. Riding a snowmobile on a majestic glacier to reach the impressive man-made wonder of the ice cave deep into the ice cap truly is a once-in-a-lifetime journey!


Once safely embarked on our Grayline coach, the journey through the scenic mountains and valleys of west Iceland begins. Heading north-west from Reykjavik, the first stop on the tour is the Deildartunguhver hot spring. About 180 litres of boiling water emerging every second, it is the most powerful hot spring in Europe and a mighty sight to behold.

Continuing on to the charming area of húsafell, lunch is available for purchase at either the local bistro or shop before embarking on the glacial voyage.

Basecamp Jaki is where the snowmobiles await and the glacier adventure begins. After suiting up with the necessary equipment and a safety briefing from the snowmobile guide, visitors begin navigating up the glacier. As you journey up the snow-covered cap, this unique landscape offers a rare photographic opportunity.

Visitors step off the snowmobiles once they have arrived at the ice cave and are invited to explore the heart of the ice cap with the guide. Stretching close to 300 metres into the glacier, the most brilliant shades of crystalline blue can be seen within its many tunnels and caverns.

Upon return from the glacier and heading onwards, the final stop on the tour is at the wondrous Hraunfossar waterfalls where glacial water emerges from the Hallmundarhraun lava field. With a deep and sombre history, the many surrounding walkways offer a variety of views over the falls and rushing river below!
