Did you know the varying color bands can be used to tell the age of the ice, much like growth rings around a tree trunk.



Customer Testimonial:

Hello, I was in your wild country some weeks ago. On 20 July we did the Blue Ice Experience from the base camp in Skaftafell, and it was marvelous. We had a great time, laughed so much (maybe a little too much) and had great guides to show us around. And I just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed it. So "tak".
