Into the glacier
Whilst there are a few man-made Ice Tunnels and Ice Caves in various places around the world, there is nothing quite like Into the Glacier, whether it is high up in a remote area of an Ice Cap Glacier, or on such a scale. Never before has anyone been able to see the beautiful blue ice at the heart of an Ice Cap Glacier. This is not quite a Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth, or even to the absolute center of the glacier, but it feels like an exciting and magical journey, deep within the glacier, and it is deep enough to reach another world, a world of magnificent, stunning blue ice.
This visit to the glacier is rounded up in an exciting tour of the vicinity, such as the famous Lava waterfalls, Europe’s spectacular largest hot spring at Deildartunguhver and the popular settlement center in the town of Borgarnes nearby, where you can enjoy interesting exhibitions on Icelandic history: Let the whole area surprise you. This wonderful neighborhood has now finally gotten it’s due, voted by the Lonely planet as the one of the ten most exciting destinations for 2016.
