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!

The tour departs on a regular truck from Amazing Basecamp Skjól at 12:20 and will head up to the direction of Langjökull glacier. After approximately 40 minutes drive (duration may change due to weather) you will jump on to the Monster Truck 8×8 wheels called Sleipnir. Sleipnir glacier truck is largest and safest way to travel on glaciers and are custom built to deal with the difficult and hostile glacier terrain, they are 8×8 all-wheel drive trucks on 65” and 78” tires. They are also built for maximum comfort for our client, with leather seats, skyline windows, state of the art AC system and are equipped with usable toilets! The ride in Sleipnir to the Amazing Crystal Ice Cave is about 40 minutes from where you will be amazed by the ice caves beauty for next 40 minutes.

The average duration of the tour is 4 hours, but can change due to unexpected circumstances such as weather and road conditions.

Langjökull is Iceland's second largest glacier. Despite its size not many river directly originate from there. The glacier is shrinking quite fast and covers 2 volcanic systems. Volcanically the region is relatively quiet.
