Once in a lifetime tour that combines a visit to newly discovered Amazing Crystal Ice Cave reachable by Sleipinir Monster 8×8 wheel truck on Langjökull Glacier. Departure from Amazing Basecamp Skjól.
This autumn, our glacier explorers found a brand new, never before seen, exciting and stunning Crystal Ice Cave on Langjökull Glacier. Because of its size and beauty we call it Amazing Crystal Ice Cave.
All ice caves are really special, but some are more special than others!
The ice-ceiling above you resembles a brilliant blue river, the ice is so exceptionally translucent, it seems as though you are surrounded by blue-hued quartz crystal jewels. The ice around this ‘blue river ‘ is white, bearing very unusual subtle gray ‘zebra striping’, formed from the ash layers of various volcanic eruptions. You get about 40-50 minutes to explore and photograph the cave and to enjoy the rare and precious crystalline blue beauty of this amazing natural ice cavern.
Enough about the ice cave and lets talk about your ride!
