Ice caves attracting ever more visitors
Iceland’s spectacular Into the Glacier attraction in the Langjökull glacier continues to attract visitors in ever increasing numbers.
Into the Glacier features the world’s longest man-made ice tunnel – 800 metres long and reaching down to a depth of 30 metres – and was opened in summer 2014.
At the time of opening, 15,000 visitors were expected for 2015. In the event, 22,000 (+47%) actually came last year – and numbers continue to outstrip forecasts.
Visitor numbers have now exceeded expectations to such an extent that that a new forecast for 2016 has been set at 40,000, up 15,000 from the previous forecast last September.
