Local Guide is the leading ice cave tour operator in Iceland. In that time we have gathered a lot of knowledge how to get our clients to the best available cave of each day as the conditions of the caves change during the winter. In autumn each year we start looking for the ice caves for the winter. Normally we find caves in several different locations on the south side of Vatnajökull. The cave we choose from day to day depends on time of winter, time of day, weather and other conditions at the time. We always go to the most interesting cave available at each time. We normally go into one cave per trip.

Please note that this ice cave tour departs from Jökulsárlón (Ice Lagoon) with Local Guide of Vatnajökull.

We normally go into one cave per trip.

The average duration of the tour is around 3 hours, however this can change depending on how far we need to drive, how far we have to walk and how complicated the ice cave is (sometimes there is only few meters walk from the car to the cave, other times it can be up to 1 km). We do not only look at the size of the ice cave but the beauty and colors, the ice caves are normally from 30-70 meters long.
