Special notification from the tour operator, for those who want to book the ice cave tour today:
In early winter the tour operator goes for an ice cave hunt. Last winter there were quite a few good caves to work with in the surroundings of Hali. Ice caves are formed by Mother Nature and therefore it is unpredictable where they will be formed and if they are safe enough to go into.
If you book your tour now, we will notify you of the ice cave status when it is closer to your arrival.
The tour operator offers rain jackets and pants for rent during the tour if needed. Rental price for a jacket and pants is 1,000 ISK per person and is paid upon arrival directly to the tour operator.
