*Can be booked agains supplement

The temperature in the ice cave is usually around 0°C/32°F
Many of our coaches do have Wi-Fi connectivity but not all of them. So you can unfortunately not rely on having a Wi-Fi connection. There are not Wi-Fi inside the glacier tunnel.
There are no food and drinks served inside the glacier tunnel. You can however buy food and drink at Húsafell. We advise you to either buy or bring with you some provisions on the tour, for example some snacks and a bottled drink.
There are toilets at some of the stopovers, but not all. There are good toilets at Húsafell, and dry toilets at Klaki base camp, where you get transfer up to the glacier by the 8 wheels driven super truck. You are encouraged to use these toilets. There is a portable toilet at the glacier tunnel, but it is really intended for emergency use only.
We recommend walking boots, snow shoes, wellies or any shoes designed for the outdoor as it can get both cold and wet inside the glacier tunnel.
You need to be fit enough to walk approx 500m on snow and ice, and be OK standing up for approximately an hour.
The floor of the ice tunnel is made out of snow and ice. It is likely to be a bit slippery and wet so we urge our guests to bare that in mind when entering the ice cave. Your guide will however provide slip on crampons for safety precaution that go over your own boots
The ice tunnel and caves is well lit so there is no need to bring a torch. Your guide will have an emergency torch and there are also emergency lights according to regulations to ensure safety inside the ice cave.
It can get very cold on the glacier, even during summertime. The temperature inside the into the glacier tunnel is around 0°C (32°F) so you need to be properly dressed to feel comfortable. We recommend layers of clothing, which can be taken off or put on as needed, which may include a vest / thermals, a top, jumper and a warm waterproof and windproof coat. Water repellent footwear is also needed. It could also be wise to wear a hat to keep you warm and a sun cap to protect you from sunburn on sunny days as the ice can reflect sunlight meaning that you can get sunburn easier. We also recommend that you bring with you some food and snacks and if you want to capture the experience make sure to bring your camera.
