Langjokull Ice Cave super truck tour, from Gullfoss
The newly formed glacier Ice cave lies on the edge of the glacier and is quite the magnificent sight to see. Glacier caves almost always form by flowing water entering the glacier through cracks or crevasses, which are then enlarged over time, both by erosion and melting. Like solution caves that carry water from one surface sink point to a resurgence, so glacier caves may serve as conduits for water through glaciers. The blue color comes only when light from above shines through and the roof is not covered with snow. The cave is lit up with strategically placed lights, so you get to fully enjoy the beauty of the cave, whether it is rain or shine outside. Join us for an exciting super truck tour up to the glacier, to visit this glacier wonder. To get there, we must put the Super Truck to the test and show you what it is all about! We switch the jeep into low gear, let some air out of the tires to give you a smoother ride, and then we are on our way! Sometimes conditions can be quite difficult, making the trip up to the glacier cave a long and slow one. We might get stuck in the snow at some but then the driver will have to pull some tricks out of their bag to get the car free. Other times, it may be smooth sailing the whole way and we can use our time to play around more! It is a good idea to bring some packed lunch for this tour, because the duration can be quite flexible, if conditions are difficult. After some time in the cave, it is time to drive back Gullfoss.
