Blue Iceland is a tour operating company that offers travellers unique ice cave tours in Vatnajökull glacier, the largest glacier in Europe. It is 8.500 square kilometres and covers roughly 13% of Iceland. The journey to the glacier is fascinating in itself and an enjoyable venture, an off-road safari through the snowy landscape. The ice caves are a unique natural phenomenon of breathtaking beauty, an experience you’ll never forget. To see the mystical icy blue is to see the pure and crystal clear beauty of Iceland.
Blue Iceland’s main tour is the Blue Ice Cave Adventure where you truly can experience the forces of the Icelandic nature. It’s an adventurous trip, off the beaten path where you can explore the insides of the glacier. During the scenic drive in huge Mercedes Unimogs towards the caves, you will also have the chance to see the best of Icelandic highlands. The tour takes around 2,5 – 4 hours and the guides are very professional, experienced and they know the caves inside out, so you can be sure to be in safe hands. They will guide you through the blue ice caves and formations. The ice cave provides spectacular opportunities for photography, it is no secret why ice cave tours have become popular in Iceland.
I work as a driver in the tourist business in Iceland and have been to several ice caves with several guides. Jón Gull at Blue Iceland provided me and my passengers with a great experience on the glacier. Riding in his huge modified Mercedes Unimog up the glacier is an experience of its own. Jón is a fun and nice guide and he took us to 3 different caves in the glacier and walking between the caves in the winter twilight was something that you’ll count yourself lucky to ever experience. Don’t miss out on this if you are ever near Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon.
