The Ice Cave Under The Volcano – Katla Icecave Tour From Vík

Magnificent Glacier and Volcano Tour

Join us on this great tour

The volacon Katla

The volcano Katla in Mýrdalsjökull glacier is a large volcano in southern Iceland. It is very active; twenty eruptions have been documented between 930 and 1918, at intervals of 20–90 years. It has not erupted violently for 103 years, although there may have been small eruptions that did not break the ice cover, including ones in 1955, 1999, and 2011.

Katla and Eyjafjallajökull

Katla has been showing signs of unrest since 1999, and geologists have concerns that it might erupt in the near future.Particularly, monitoring has been intensified following the March 2010 eruptions of a smaller neighbouring volcano, the Eyjafjallajökull glacier.The eruption of this nearby long-dormant volcano in March and April 2010 prompted fears among some geophysicists that it might trigger an eruption at the larger and more dangerous Katla. In the past 1,000 years, all three known eruptions of Eyjafjallajökull have triggered subsequent Katla eruptions.You should not worry about joining the tour because we will know in good time if an eruption will take place.

The Ice Cave Under The Volcano

We will be driving on road number 1, but will soon turn to no-man´s-land! You will be amazed as we drive by the mountains and glaciers all around us.

You will be taken up to the base of Kötlujökull glacier, where the view in front of you will be simply breathtaking: layers of different colored ice creating a striped pattern on the glacier will reveal thousands of years of history right before your eyes!

Your knowledgeable guide will tell you all about it and about the Ice Cave itself that you will visit shortly afterward for a small hike. This will be both an educational and exciting experience all at once!

Sout Coast Adventure

we operate in small groups

We leave the capital area behind and we will soon reach the countryside. Along the way, we can see Hellisheiðarvirkjun, the geothermal power plant for Reykjavik. It is located in Hengill, a high-temperature area that provides the capital area with hot water and electricity. Steam is billowing up everywhere.

Expect a spectacular view

As we venture south, we will drive through the typical lowlands of this area. In the distance, we can already see the mountains and the ice cap of the Mýrdalsjökull glacier. On sunny days it is also possible to see the Westman Islands shimmering in the Atlantic Ocean.

Skógafoss Waterfall

Our first stop is Skógafoss waterfall. It is one of the most iconic waterfalls in the country and was even featured in Game of Thrones. His 60m drop will keep you speechless for sure. Your guide will tell you all about the hidden treasure chest behind the waterfall and with some luck, you will be the first one to find it.

Reynisfjara – Black Beach

Now it’s time to hit the road again. After a short ride, we stop at Reynisfjara black sand beach. The beach was once rated as one of the 10 most beautiful places in the world and as soon as you put a foot on the beach, you will know why. Basalt columns and the well-known Reynisdrangar rock formations await you. Your guide will tell you all the interesting stories and sagas that are connected to this place.

Vík í Mýrdal

Having now reached our most southern point, this charming fishing village is the center of the southern region. On the tour, we will pay a visit to the church where we can enjoy a great view of the coastline.

Sólheimajökull Glacier

Besides waterfalls, Iceland is also known for glaciers. 11% of the country is covered by ice. Sólheimajökull is an outlet glacier coming down the fourth biggest glacier of Iceland, called Mýrdalsjökull.

Seljalandsfoss and Gljufrabui Waterfalls

Heading back in the direction of Reykjavik, our last stop will be the ever-popular Seljalandsfoss waterfall. The waterfall lays underneath the well-known Eyfjallajokull, the volcano that erupted in 2010. If conditions allow, we take a walk behind the waterfall’s curtain before paying a visit to its nearby cousin Gljúfrabúi, found hidden from view in the mountainside.
