A new ice-cold underground attraction is getting set to open deep inside Iceland’s 953 square kilometer (367 square mile) Langjökull Glacier, Europe‘s second largest glacier.

Beginning in June, visitors will have the opportunity to take an exciting and magical journey “Into the Glacier,” via some 762 meters (2,500 feet) of man-made tunnels, and see it from the inside.

In an experience that is akin to visiting an ice cave, tourists will get to see the breathtaking blue ice colors from when the daylight filters through the ice.

To get to the tunnels, day trips leave from Reykjavík, Húsafell and Kaldidalur and journey to the entrance via specially engineered off-road vehicles, which afford fantastic views as they travel across the ice.
