Katla Ice Cave - Photo by Jonatan Pie

These beautiful ice caves are formed in the glacier tongues when water from the melting glacier finds its way and carves an opening in the ice - enabling a rare peek inside. The Katla Ice Cave features incredible black and blue ice tunnels with beautiful shiny ice formations. It is the only ice cave in Iceland that is open all year round, not formed only by winter weather. The ice cave is a 45-minute drive north of Vík through black volcanic sand plains from previous eruptions of the still active Katla volcano. In order to access the caves you will need to participate in a guided tour. (Mýrdalsjökull glacier, Iceland)
