Operator: Into the glacier

We say: The highlight of this tour is the ice tunnel, a fairly recent attraction in Iceland, conceived in 2010. It was something of a new idea for us, being a designed and managed site in natural surroundings where most of our other must-sees are naturally formed, like waterfalls and canyons. But, you know what, it’s an awesome experience. Since the tunnel has been cut specifically for guests to walk into, it’s very accessible and almost anyone can do it. It’s a different experience to a glacier walk, and those who’ve done that say it is also very interesting to then see inside of the glacier. We have to say, the trip from the parking lot onto the glacier in the huge 8 wheeler is also a highlight!

Good to know! You need a rental car for this activity. If you don’t have a car, you can take this day tour. If you plan on driving, here are some things you need to know.

Good to know! In winter the daylight hours are restricted and the first and last parts of the trip will be in darkness

Ideal for you if: you’d like to see inside a glacier and have a rental car
