One Day South Coast and Katla Ice Cave Tour from Reykjavik


    Tour operator: Katlatrack     12 hours     Travel method: Mini Bus / Car     Region: Capital Region

 It’s now possible to explore both the South

Coast of Iceland AND a natural ice cave in a single day tour from

Reykjavik. There’s no need to choose

between one tour or the other, and no need to hire a car. Let us take care of everything while you sit

back, relax, and prepare to be awed by just how much natural beauty we have to

show you in one day. This is a once in a

lifetime adventure that you can only experience with a Katlatrack guide. We are the only tour company to combine a

South Coast tour with a visit to a natural ice cave in a single day. 

Our day starts at 8:00am, when your

Katlatrack driver collects you from central Reykjavik. Our small group will head south, as we wind

our way through the ever changing scenery towards the breathtaking south

coast. Our first stop is Hvolsvöllur for

some coffee and snacks for the day.   

The next stop is our home town of Vik,

where we meet up with your Katlatrack Ice Cave Guide and our adventure

begins! We’ll climb into a super jeep

and take an exhilarating ride through the private back road of Vik to reach the

glacier area.  

In true Katlatrack style, this will be an

offbeat experience that will show you the quieter, authentic side of Iceland,

far away from the crowds and the mainstream tours. As local guides, we spend more time than

anyone else exploring this landscape and we know where all of the best ice

caves hide! We’re also proud to say that

we are one of the very few companies who can offer ice cave tours all year

round, thanks to our extensive local knowledge and our expert caving skills.  

As always, your safety is paramount on our

tours. Visitors should never risk

exploring an ice cave without a highly experienced guide, so after fitting you

up with some of our loan equipment (a helmet, head lamp and some crampons for

your shoes), we’ll provide a full safety brief before making our way to the

cave. After a short (10-15 minute) walk

across the glacier, we’re ready to enter our ice cave!  

When we say, “visiting an ice cave is a

once in a lifetime experience”, this is 100% true. The ice caves are constantly melting and

reforming all the time, so we love to share this year’s caves with our guests

before they are gone forever. We’ll

spend around 30 to 45 minutes inside the cave, so you’ll have plenty of time to

explore, admire the crazy shapes and beautiful colours, take photos, ask

questions, and learn all about how these magnificent structures are

formed. After a short hike back to the

super jeep, we’ll take another exciting ride through the wild local terrain on

our way back to Vik. 

From here, we’ll wave farewell to your Ice Cave

Guide and start our journey back to Reykjavik. Our adventure continues on the way home however, as we detour along Iceland’s

Ring Road and pay a visit to two of its most famous waterfalls. 

Our first stop is the thundering Skógafoss, where you’ll marvel at the power of this towering waterfall

and learn all about the legend of the secret treasure that it hides. Our final stop is Seljalandsfoss, a truly

magnificent and picturesque waterfall, and one that you can even walk behind

during the summer months. 

Our tour will then conclude back in

Reykjavik, where our driver will leave you with many memories to keep and many stories

to share.
