As if you needed another reason to visit the land of Northern Lights, active volcanoes, and therapeutic hot springs, the world's largest man-made ice tunnel opened in Iceland last month, offering visitors the chance to go inside a glacier.

Tunneling all the way through Langjökull, Into the Glacier's ice cave stretches for 550 meters, nearly 30 meters below the surface. Let's just say it's not for the claustrophobic. But if enclosed spaces are no big deal, and you're curious to see the effects of global warming up close and in person, pack your parka and book a tour. They'll even pick you up from your hotel in Reykjavik and take you to the site, so there's no excuse not to check it out.

Interested? More information, including pricing and packing lists, right this way.
