Mýrdalsjökull glacier is one of the best-known in Iceland, from which the alluring Kötlujökull glacier originates.
Once picked up, it’s time to continue on to the glaciers. The drive starts on the famous road 1 but soon we will make a turn to what seems like a no man’s land. There we will descend to the mountains with glaciers and mountains surrounding us the whole time. We will come to a stop right at the roots of Kötlujökull glacier and the view that greets you is otherworldly, layers of different colored ice making stripes in the glacier and at one point you will see the opening in the glacier and that’s where you are going in. Your guide will tell you all about the history of the glacier, the ice cave and the area around it making the tour educating and exciting all at once.

Meeting point: If you choose to meet the tour at Vik, our tour guide will connect with you at The Ice Cave Bistro/ Restaurant in Vík. By the entrance at the back of the building, you will be able to find our guide holding an “Arctic Adventures” sign or standing by a super jeep marked with an Arctic Adventures sign in the window. The tour will start from Vík (approximately 2.5 hours from Reykjavik) where you will join everyone in a huge Super Jeep for the exciting day ahead.
