Askur Ice Cave and Snowmobiling

Explore the mesmerizing world beneath the icy surface on our Mýrdalsjökull Ice Cave Tour, an exhilarating adventure that takes you deep into the heart of one of Iceland's most stunning glaciers. 

Your adventure begins at the Myrdalsjökull Base Camp, approximately a two hour and 15 minutes drive from Reykjavík. Boasting the title of the nearest and most accessible ice cave to the capital, its unparalleled beauty awaits your discovery.

From there, you’ll take a scenic and thrilling ride aboard a giant Mountain Truck, transforming the journey into an adventure of its own. This thrilling 20-minute ride weaves through stunning landscapes, bringing you ever closer to the glacier's edge, where the grandeur of nature momentarily takes your breath away.

Next, you'll hop on a snowmobile and drive to the ice cave. There is no need for a snowmobiling experience. However, you'll share a snowmobile with your travel partner and one of you must have a valid driving license.

Upon reaching your destination, you'll be outfitted with top-notch gear and provided with comprehensive information to ensure your exploration is both safe and enjoyable. Guided by our expertly trained glacier guide, you're set to embark on an enthralling exploration, delving deep into the glacier's very heart.

As you venture into the glacier, your guide will share fascinating insights into the geological wonders surrounding you, detailing the history and science behind these breathtaking ice formations. The unique conditions within the caves provide a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for photography enthusiasts to capture the ethereal beauty of this frozen landscape.

This tour is suitable for adventurers of all levels, and no prior experience is required. The majority of the journey involves walking on a mostly level terrain, featuring a combination of snow, ice, and rocks. Immerse yourself in the surreal beauty of Mýrdalsjökull and create lasting memories as you explore the hidden treasures within its icy depths. After your ice cave adventure, enjoy a comfortable transfer back to base camp, reflecting on the extraordinary experience you've had beneath the surface of one of Iceland's most remarkable glaciers.  You'll be equipped with all the necessary gear for a safe and comfortable exploration
