Maybe you won’t believe it, but Superman’s crystal fortress is real, hidden deep under massive Vatnajökull Glacier in Iceland. These crystal ice beautiful caves are formed by the melting snow and ice glacier water. Winter is the best time of year to visit “Fortress of Solitude” because there is no fear of collapse and melting ice. Low temperatures make the ice strong and exploration possible.

Many different shades of white, translucent blue, and inky black stretch out before us. You will be amazed to see frozen sculpted waves over your heads. Where do these awesome blue and black colors come from?

This glacial ice is blue due to a lack of air bubbles and layers of black volcanic ash are trapped here from previous eruptions. This is a real blue and black cathedral of crystal ice.
