About Ice Caves

The conditions of the ice caves are constantly changing. During the warmer summer months, the ice caves are being naturally formed by melted glacier water. In autumn each year Local Guide of Vatnajökull starts scouting for ice caves. The choice for the best available ice cave is the size of the cave and the overall beauty of the area, and the colors. The operator aims to find the bluest ice cave there is.
