The first stop is Langjokull glacier, the second largest in Iceland. Board a modified glacier vehicle to reach the man-made tunnel and ice cave while you learn about the local impact of global climate change. Travel deep into the glacier and admire the layers of blue ice. Learn how the glacier was formed and why it’s in perpetual motion. Return topside and travel to Húsafell for lunch (own expense). Visit a thermal pool in the village, or Hraunfossar, a waterfall that appears to flow from a lava field. Make the return journey to Reykjavik, and get dropped off at your hotel.

Being inside a glacier was awesome. The guided tour was educational and beautiful sites. Our guide actually sang an Icelandic Lullaby to show acoustics and had a lovely voice. I highly recommend this trip.
