Hike Langjokull Glacier Tunnel

Langjökull glacier ice tunnel is one of Iceland’s most captivating experiences. This mammoth glacier is the second-longest in Europe and the man-made tunnel gives you the hair-raising chance to scour the depths inside it. 

On the way, marvel at lava fields, waterfalls and jagged mountains that dot the landscape. A specialized truck will drive hundreds of metres along the glacier to take you to the ice cave’s entrance. 

Strap on your crampons, layer up and walk through the illuminated corridors to experience life inside a bone-chilling glacier. The spellbinding blue lights create an icy, fairy-tale universe and you will even see a chapel where winter-loving romantics can marry. 

Then ascend to the top of Iceland’s second-largest glacier. The only direction to go now is up and climbing to the peak of Langjökull will feel like summiting the roof of Iceland. 

This towering block of ice reaches a height of 1,355-metres and is one of the highest pinnacles in the country. Here, the vast, wintry landscapes encompassing the horizon are a treasure trove for snowbound explorers. You can choose to explore more of the snowy landscapes atop the glacier in a snowmobile.
