You can see these gorgeous ice crystals only from within of the glacier. The meltwater washed a horizontal passage under it, forming the marvelous Crystal Cave. The length of the cave is 50 meters, while its width is 10 meters, and the height is less than 2 meters.
In the cave you feel as if on the bottom of an astonishingly blue ocean, with the sunlight coming through its water thicket. The turquoise ceiling of the Cave blackens gradually in its transition into the walls, and at the very bottom it gets a saturated blue hue, like the Christmas midnight sky.
This beauty is not accessible all year round. Firstly, staying in the cave is safe only in winter months, when there's a low chance of collapse. The crackling sounds of ice at this time just reveal the glacier movement, though you should be careful, anyway. Secondly, the transparent blue ice shows all its beauty only under certain weather conditions, when there's no or little snow on the glacier surface, and it doesn't prevent the sun from penetrating the cave.
How to get: the best option is going to the Town of Höfn and book a guided tour to the glacier. You can get from Reykjavík to Höfn by bus, stopping in Skaftafell area.
