Wear layers and sunscreen. Hike to glacier was easy. Ice cave at end was awsome. Repelling into cravas with water was a really cool adventure

Worth every cent and more
Mike_C, Aug 2021
This was the highlight of my trip. Not only because of the amazing sights, but because of the passion of the guides. It was thrilling , eye opening and educational all in one. While I am sure all the guides are amazing I can’t give enough credit to Mike. He was one of the top guides I have ever had. Go with this tour. It was last minute for me but last minute can impact you to the core.

Our guide was Gium who was very knowledgeable, patient, and a good instructor. The super jeep ride was bumpy but fun. We experienced wind, rain, hail, and some sunshine on our little trek. The walk was enjoyable and not too difficult. The views looking in to the crevices of the glacier created by the moulin were beautiful.

Alana B, Aug 2016
An unforgettable experience that I recommend to everyone! Our guide was incredibly nice, helpful and informative. They take you to a very quiet part of the glacier so nobody else is around, which really adds to the experience. It was truly incredible and the highlight of our week-long trip to Iceland which is really saying something, because the trip was full of highlights.

Great tour guide. Easy hike. Doable for children too. If you are experienced hikers like we are it is an easy walk. Still it was a fun experience and the staff is just amazing. For more experienced hikers I would recommend a day tour surely more challenging.
