Go off the beaten track and into an isolated, difficult to access, ice cave on this tour from Hali. In a small group of no more than eight people, this is a more personalized tour than most. Travel by Super Jeep to the location, then hike across rough terrain to explore a unique natural ice cave (selected, according to the conditions, on the day) within Vatnajökull glacier. Your tour guides supply all safety equipment, including helmet, crampons, and ice axe.
