Extreme ice cave tour to our most stunning ice caves in Vatnajökull glacier. This tour is for adventure people that want to reach for something more extreme. The tour takes 6-8 hours including 1 hour glacier hike on Vatnajökull Glacier to the caves and one hour Glacier Hike back. These extreme ice caves are situated where the Glacier enters the Glacier Lagoon in an absolutely stunning landscape.
The tour is excellent for photographers, outdoor people who love to hike a little bit and for those who love extreme nature. The difficult level in this tour is a bit higher than in the other ice cave tours that we offer and people need to dress very warmly, in a good hiking shoes. It fits for all healthy people.
In this tour you are situated where the glacier enters the lagoon so there is always a good chance to witness the glacier calving into the lagoon.

spencerw_36Amazing guide and fantastic experience!!!
Fouzzi was terrific! He took us to not only the main Crystal cave, but also showed us the Black Diamond and Dark Ruby caves, all which had their own unique appeal. This tour specializes in small groups which means you get better, more personal interaction with the guide. the guide was super friendly and very knowledgeable. He let us take our times in the caves, showed us all the unique features of each, and even sang us an Icelandic song! It was an awesome experience and I highly recommend them.
Shaun JBest glacier tour
Some friends and I were looking to go on a glacier tour at the glacier lagoon near diamond beach. We talked to three other tour guides before we found Vigfus. This guy offered a better deal than other tour guides, and provided a much more personalized experience of the glaciers. He never rushed us in or out of the glacier caves, captured some cool pictures, and told great stories along the way.
If you’re thinking about going with a big commercial glacier tour company think again. This guy is the real deal.
Steve NIncredible private Ice Cave tour
Hands down the best day on our trip to Iceland.
Vigfús gave the 3 of us an absolutely amazing tour of two Ice Caves.
He limits his tours to 6, but we were lucky and were the only 3. We only ever saw two groups on our glacier hike and cave exploration .
We also took a walk to the edge of the glacial lagoon and saw a massive ice cliff calve off the glacier.
The whole time, we had plenty of guidance and all the gear we needed, but Vigfús also gave us plenty of space and freedom to explore the caves on our own. He had a decent camera and was taking photos the whole time – sent them to us with no extra charge.
His tour is on the pricier side, but is much longer and was amazing. It’s so worth it.
hanr01Stunning each moment of the tour
Great guide who knows the sweet spots of the tour. I did the extreme ice cave tour and I totally recommend it since you get to spots where there are not many people.
