Ice caves in Skaftafell National Park are another nature's unequaled work of art. Here, you get impression, that you are at the very bottom of the ocean, the waters of which obediently parted and froze above your head, having formed fantastic patterns of blue and azure tints...
The cave is at a depth of 50 meters and is a spacious underground passage. The thicket of ice is penetrated with sun rays, turning the place into a real magic kingdom, while the crackling ice sounds remind you, that the glacier is on the move, living its own life like a huge fairy tale creature.
The cave formation took place due to the flow of glacial meltwater. Most often, such passages are directed from the top to the bottom, but the Skaftafellsjökull glacier became an exception: as it is located on the hard surface, the meltwater had to choose a horizontal route.
