Blue Ice Cave – Jökulsárlón – Diamond Beach
Blue Ice Cave is a rare and hugely popular part of winter in Iceland. This tour is for anyone who would like to explore the little-seen phenomenon of a naturally formed ice cave or anyone who wants to feel the frosty air on their cheeks as they enjoy the wilderness of Iceland.
Jökulsárlón is a large glacial lake on the edge of Vatnajökull National Park. Floating on the lagoon are enormous icebergs, moving with the waves towards the river mouth. The white and blue icebergs give off a calming crackling sound as they float around in the lagoon. You will have plenty of time to take in the views from shore, and to hop onto the amphibian boat to ride onto the lagoon for an up close encounter with the icebergs and the seals that swim around them.
Diamond Beach, which is just beside Jökulsárlón, is the best way to bring to a close this awesome and mesmorising day. Littered with sparking ice pieces, both big and small, on an endless stretch of black sand beach.
