Embark on an incredible journey to explore the enchanting Katla Volcano ice cave, cloaked in volcanic ash, during an unforgettable super jeep adventure. This expedition is perfect for those who want a special and one-of-a-kind experience away from the usual tourist spots.

The adventure kicks off in Vik, where you'll meet your friendly glacier guide and hop on a modified super jeep. As you drive into the highlands, take in the stunning mountains and fields of soft moss. 

Look out over the Myrdalssandur flood plains, with their icy glaciers, towering mountains, and dark volcanic deserts. Your knowledgeable guide will share fascinating stories and facts about this beautiful area in the South of Iceland.

Once you arrive in the highlands, you'll step out of the super jeep near the glacier's edge. With a helmet, headlamp, and crampons provided for your safety, you'll start a walk through various ice formations in the volcanic glacier outlets of Myrdalsjokull. 

These spots are not usually accessible to regular tourists. Your experienced guide will ensure you know how to use the equipment and stay safe during this thrilling adventure.

A major highlight of the Katla volcano ice cave tour is the chance to discover a form of lava called dragon glass. This magical-looking material adds more wonder to the already beautiful ice formations. It's like finding a piece of fantasy in real life.

The Katla Volcano holds a special place in Icelandic history as one of the most powerful volcanoes. Even though it's currently dormant, it still demands admiration. 

This tour takes you deep into its origins, letting you enjoy fire and ice uniquely. And all around you, you'll see landscapes shaped by the volcano's past eruptions.

This is an opportunity you don't want to miss – a chance to uncover the hidden beauty of the Katla volcano ice cave. Immerse yourself in the astonishing ice formations, soak in the breathtaking views during the off-road journey, and experience the excitement of exploring a place that only modified jeeps can reach.

Your guides can even capture memorable photos of you upon request.
