When can I visit an ice cave?
Iceland’s glaciers harbour some of the most mesmerising caves in the world, ice caves. These crystal blue marvels are on a lot of bucket lists these days.
In Iceland you can visit two kinds: one is a man-made ice tunnel in Langjökull glacier and the others are natural ice caves – mostly in the Vatnajökull area. The ice tunnel (Into The Glacier) is accessible all year round, while the natural formed ice caves are only accessible in winter time (usually this is from the end of November until the middle of March). You can book all of these activities on our Activities-page or ask your travel consultant to add them onto the trip.
Where and when can you see whales?
Iceland really is a paradise for whale watchers. There’s numerous species to be seen around the island. Minke and humpback whales, together with dolphins, are probably the most frequent spotted sea mammals in Icelandic waters.
Whale watching is available all year round in Reykjavík and Grundarfjörður in West Iceland. In Húsavík and Akureyri whale watching is only available outside of the winter months. We have a selection of whale watching tours available in our Activities-section.
If you’re specifically looking to see orcas, your best bet is with Láki Tours in Grundarfjörður. They often spot orcas during the winter months.
Where and when can I go snowmobiling?
Snowmobiling in Iceland is available throughout the year from two locations: Langjökull, leaving from Gullfoss waterfall, and Myrdalsjökull, leaving from Solheimajökull. Both organisations offer snowmobiling tours that take place on a glacier, which is quite the experience. To participate in this activity, a valid driver’s license is required.
You can book all of these activities on our Activities-page or ask your travel consultant to add them onto the trip.
