Private Lofthellir Ice Cave Tour

Private Access to a Weird World of Ice and Darkness

Private Cave Exploration Lofthellir from Lake Mývatn offers you an private access to and exclusive Ice Cave in the middle of Lake Mývatn Outback. You will have complete access to your private guide and spend at least one hour in the cave without interference.

Our destination is an Lava Cave filled with ice, stalagmites and Ice sculptures. The cave boasts the greatest natural ice sculptures currently known in an Icelandic lava cave. We travel along a rugged track on a 4×4 Truck to the unique volcano Hverfell, through the crater row of Lúdentarborgir to the roots of Mt. Hvannfell. After a 20-minute walk across a lava field which is adorned by endless ropey lava, we reach the Lofthellir Lava Cave. In winter we might have to use Snowshoes to get across the lava.

Private Lofthellir Ice Cave exploration is a special experience that you will not forget.
