Into the Glacier
The world’s largest man-made ice tunnel
Into the Glacier classic tour from Klaki base camp invites you to explore the untouched beauty of Langjokull, Iceland’s second-largest glacier. Walk inside the man-made ice tunnel that leads right to the heart of the glacier and learn exciting facts about Icelandic glaciers along the way.
Langjökull (the Long Glacier) is the second largest in Iceland. It covers an area of about 950 km² and most of it rises between 1200 and 1300 m above sea level. It rests on a massif of hyaloclastite mountains.
The southwestern part of the ice cap is called Geitlandsjökull, which rises to an elevation of 1400 meters. To the south of Geitlandsjökull and separated from the main ice cap, is the smaller (1350 m) Þórisjökull, which sits atop an irregular table mountain.
The man-made cave
Until now, what lay beneath the surface of the Langjökull glacier, had been a mystery, known only by a small group of scientists and glaciologists. In 2010 however, Baldvin Einarsson and Hallgrimur Örn Arngrímsson had a bold and daring vision, to take people not just around and onto the glacier, but also inside the heart of the remote and extraordinary ice cap, to see the magnificent “blue ice” which is buried deep beneath the surface.
Who we are
We are the people who got the crazy idea of drilling a tunnel into a glacier and actually made it happen! We want to give people the chance to experience this amazing natural wonder and see the Langjökull glacier from the inside. Learn, feel and absorb the ice, taking home memories that are truly out of this world!
The Into the Glacier Tour
From the Klaki base camp, specially modified monster trucks will take you to the glacier. These powerful vehicles turn the trip to the glacier into an adventure itself!
