Ice-cave tours

Natural ice cave in Iceland

Private tour& Ice cave visit

There are at least 7 kinds of caves in Iceland, i.e. tubular lava caves, crater vent caves, sea cliff caves, man-made caves made into palagonite tuff, man-made ice tunnel and the most popular – the natural blue ice caves. There are two kinds of natural ice caves, i.e. the blue kind and the not so blue kind.

It is important to distinguish between the different kinds of caves before your visit because you might be disappointed not to see the blue color in a man-made ice tunnel for example even if the trip to the man-made ice tunnel is wonderful.

We offer tours to the following types of caves…
