We were spending our next two days at Selfoss. Selfoss is the largest town in south Iceland; still it is a peaceful town with varied options for some good restaurants to try. Our entire day was already planned as we had booked a visit to the Langjökull Ice Cave. We had to drive all the way to the Klaki Base Camp. The drive to the base camp was nothing short of an adventure itself with rough roads and a weather which was windy and turning colder the closer we reached to the base camp. When we reached the base camp, we were in for a big surprise. We were just at the foot of the glacier and the wind was at its best. A big SUV was like a matchbox in front of the power of the wind and was shaking continuously. We had to take our gears from the camp which included shoes, complete pullover and pants, and gloves. The temperate near the base camp was freezing cold and luckily we had brought extra pair of jackets. We were then transported into a special purpose vehicle converted to be able to drive on the glacier. Our tour guide gave us some basic information on the Ice tunnel.
