We went to this ice cave with Geo travel. The guide Anton was great -- got everyone talking to each other and told us more about Iceland in 4 hours than we found out in the rest of our 2 weeks.
The trip involved sliding...More
Myself and my friend booked this tour with geotravel and had an amazing time. We had a fantastic tour guide called Inga who made the trip especially interesting and magical. I would definitely recommend including this in your trip to Iceland, but be prepared to...More
The tour starts off on a bumpy, but extremely beautiful road towards the cave. The views are stunning and our guide Inga was telling us all about the area. The walk to the cave was even more beautiful, but it has to be said that...More
We went on an ice cave tour with our wonderful Geo Travel guide, Iri (apologies about the spelling! She was an awesome lady with short hair and excellent driving skills, been with the company for a month).

Felt lucky to tour the Lofthellir Ice Cave with Geo Travel. Prior to meeting the guide suggested best clothes to wear and what to expect for the day. Getting in to the cave had some tight spaces. Was I claustrophobic? Was I comfortable crawling? A...More
Booked day tour with Saga in February this year. On the Wednesday before the Sunday we were booked to go it was cancelled due to inclement weather conditions - 2 of us booked to go. However we could be accommodated on the following day. Did...More
Our guide was very knowledgeable although he was fro Ireland. He loved his subject and made it great fun for all. You need to be fairly mobile and good on your feet to walk inside the tunnels. A bit expensive but this is Iceland !!!...More
Our guide, Raggi, was excellent. You need waterproof top and bottom. Be prepared to military crawl a short distance. Very beautiful inside. The walk through the lava field was a great bonus. Looks like nothing you have ever seen.
This was a really fun and different activity. Even though we were only five days in Iceland this was the most novel and authentic experience. In the wilderness away from tourists and doing a cave exploration which is still in pretty much its natural condition....More

You can not go to Lofthellir Cave by yourself. The cave is private property. The reason for this is that the cave is very delicate. The stalagmites and ice sculptures inside the dark cave are very fragile and a trained guide is required for entry, in order to protect this delicate location.
The road is as well an unofficial trail, and your car rental company will probably not allow you driving on it.
All the best
I am guessing there is not much difference between the tours other than driving time. Lake Myvatn is where the offroad portion to get to the Cave starts. Aukreyi is quite some distance from Laka Myvatn.
