As we walked into the entrance we were amazed with the beauty of the ice. The tour was more than we had hoped. It was absolutely beautiful.
Great tour with Bennie!!

One of the highlights of our trip! Super Jeep was cool, glacier and caves were amazing, and Bennie was charismatic and shared a bunch of interesting facts about Iceland. Would recommend!
Amazing experience

We absolutely loved our tour of the ice caves and our guide Olly- who was fantastic! Would do it again! Thank you Olly and Troll tours for a once in a lifetime experience x
Great unique ice cave experience.

The ice cave tour was fantastic and incredibly unique. Helmet and crampons were provided. Our guide was very informative and gave us good time at each cave site. Incredibly beautiful caves that are always changing, sometimes multiple times a season. Would highly recommend the tour. It is farther from most big towns, advise booking a hotel closer so the drive in the morning to the meet up isn’t far.

It was great. Once in a lifetime event! I am not a good writer. Please let it go if you need my review
Easy. Beautiful. Overall incredible.

Really great tour. It helped to know that the guides are really invested in the tours - they are maintaining the caves and access points way after hours. It was very easy - don't need to be in excellent shape. Had a lot of fun. One of the highlights of our time in Iceland.
Must See Ice Cave

Biggie was our tour guide. He was knowledgeable about the glaciers and ice caves. He shared some of the history along the walk and inside the cave. It was a great experience.
Ice Cave Adventure

This was an awesome experience. Our Guide was like a 'Viking' with the ancestry to prove it and his commentary and care were beyond expectations. The drive to the start of the walk to the Ice Cave was done in an all terrain vehicle through the glacial bed which of itself was cool. The walk/hike to the Ice Cave was on uneven ground but not challenging if you are used to doing some hiking. The cave itself was stunning and aided by the Guides stories and ice pick truely magical. We would definitely recommend this trip and it is well worth the money.
Well worth it

Awesome time. Highly recommend. Being able to navigate rough terrain is suggested but tour guides do a great job accommodating guests with mobility difficulties. Well worth the investment of time and resources. Our guide was fabulous. Wear waterproof clothing!!!!
Beautiful blue ice caves

Thor was our guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly. The ride from the parking lot to the cave was 15-20 mins. Then we walked about 25 mins to the cave. The cave changes daily. The day we were there a river was flowing through it. Beautiful crystal ice with blue color from the sun shining through.
Great Experience!

Amazing experience. Guide (Oli) was great and gave us an insight into all things Iceland and Ice caves. Would highly recommend!
Too expensive for what if was!
Teresa_R, Oct 2021
The tour guide (an older man) was very nice, kind and knowledgeable. Be prepare to walk like a mile in rocky, volcano territory (not difficult) then we spent maybe like 30 to 40 minutes in the ice caves and walk back another mile to get to "jeep". The experience was worthwhile as I have ever seen an ice cave before but I think the price was way too high for what it was
Amazing experience

The guide was very kind and knowledgeable and the whole visit was unforgettable! I am a bit claustrophobic but i totally recommend this experience, you will feel amazed by the spectacle of the nature and the guide will be there explaining and making you feel safe
Crystal Cave is gorgeous! Instructors are amazing, very nice, helpful, and kept us safe. It was a wonderful trip.

I highly recommend visiting Crystal Cave if visiting in winter. There’s nothing like this in the whole world I have ever seen!
Esperienza suggestiva

Viaggio in jeep per raggiungere il ghiacciaio. La passeggiata per raggiungere la grotta di ghiaccio.
Mickael_F, Dec 2022
l'accompagnatrice pas agréable, prix excessif pour une marche de 30 mn, un voyage de 30mn en vehicule tout terrain et visite trop courte de la grotte.
Es war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis! Unser Guide war unglaublich cool und hat uns sehr gut unterhalten und informiert.
Diana_L, Oct 2021
Die Höhle ist einfach unglaublich! wo sonst auf der Welt kann man sich so tief unter dem Eis bewegen. Die Farben sind wunderschön!! Die ganze Tour war auf jeden fall ihr Geld wert. ich würde es wieder machen =)
Jimena_A, Mar 2020
Experiencia única!! Un guía muy bueno y muy copado!! Lo volvería a repetir!! Estar debajo de un glaciar es realmente muy fuerte y como se forma el hielo es maravilloso.

出発時に人数オーバーで予定時刻より40分遅れてのスタートになりましたが、逆にそのおかげで他のグループと時間がずれて長く氷の洞窟内の時間を取ってもらえ大満足でした。 当日は小雨でしたが、しっかり青く輝いてました!!
