After nearly five years of study, planning, modelling and careful preparation by top engineers, and advice from world renowned geo physicist with expert level knowledge of glaciers, you can now explore the Langjokull ice tunnel, located high on Europe's second largest glacier!
The Langjokull Ice tunnel is the world's first and biggest man made Ice Cap Glacier tunnel.
This adventurous, once in a lifetime journey to the heart of an Ice Cap Glacier, starts with a bus ride to the area of Borgarfjordur. On the way to the edge of the glacier you'll stop and witness natural phenomena such as Deildartunguhver, the largest hot spring area in Europe, and Hraunfossar Waterfalls, a series of waterfalls formed by rivulets streaming over a distance of about 900 metres out of a lava field.
When you reach Langjokull glacier, it's time to board a monster 8 wheel glacier truck to reach the entrance of the ice cave.
During the excursion within the glacier itself you'll see colours of blue you never knew existed, and learn how glaciers hide the secrets of history.
After an approximately 50 minute visit within the glacier, it's time to head back to Reykjavik but this time through the Kaldidalur highland track, including a visit at Thingvellir National Park where you'll encounter an amazing scenery.
A complimentary pick up from your hotel included, 30 minutes prior to departure.
Due to the closing of Kaldidalur highland track, a visit to Thingvellir National Park is only available from June- September.
