Itinerary of the excursion:

The Katla volcano lies under the famous Mýrdalsjökull glacier, on the South Coast of Iceland, giving its name to the Kötlujökull glacier tongue or Katla glacier, whose most striking feature is its exceptionally blue color. In recent years, this glacier has been moving slowly from the interior of Iceland, creating some of the most impressive natural ice caves on the island. At first, the ice caves were quite small, but today they have become quite large and do not look like anything you've seen before.

The tour starts in Reykjavík and takes you along the South Coast of Iceland, with views of mountains, rivers and small towns on one side and the wild Atlantic Ocean on the other. We will arrive to Vík, we will pick up the last participants and we will go east until we take a detour to the north, entering a rural road that is only accessible thanks to our incredible Superjeep. As the road gets harder, the views are even more breathtaking, with mountains and glaciers everywhere, a truly amazing landscape.

After the exciting trip in Superjeep, we will stop just shy of the Kötlujökull glacier to put on the crampons and start our walk on the glacier ice. An otherworldly landscape awaits you as you enter the interior of the glacier, traversing incredible walls of blue and black ice. At the end of the tunnel you will find an opening in the ice like the vault of a church. We will enter, taking our time to admire this scene that leaves us speechless, before returning to the surface of the glacier. We will walk a little further to see if the smaller ice caves are accessible and we will return to our Superjeep. On the way back, we will make a quick stop in Vík and visit the popular Skógafoss waterfall. We will return to Reykjavík at dinner time (around 7:00 p.m.).
