Great views! Was not empress from the tour company- very shabby track and not a lot of explanations. Expected more for the price
Ice slumming it

So much fun!! Great mix of hard work and silly fun but also safe and informative. Truly enjoyed on the ice.
Don’t mind ice caves!

Pavel was a great guide who gave us lots of information on the science behind the glacier and the ice cave. He showed us concrete evidence of the amount that the glacier has receded in the last month and year which is sad. The cave was beautiful and Pavel explained the different textures and colors we were seeing. Overall awesome experience.

The Glacier Caves was an awesome experience. The guide was very nice and funny. If you go to Iceland, then you should do it.

Standing inside a glacier with the bright blue crystal ice. Looks every bit as good as the website pictures

Guide was excellent! "Billed" as a cave.... It was only a short tunnel. Not worth the money nor the time. Rather spent more time swimming or going around Reykjavik.
Brilliant experience and great fun

What a fun trip!! The ice caves are just amazing the colours, the structures and all the shapes they carve out. The guide was very funny, he let us stay as long as we wanted. We got some great pictures and got to experience a true wonder on this trip. Would highly recommend this one it is worth it!
