    Nice experience

    Very great tour. Walk for a while on the glacier with the introduction then we start to ice climbing. The climbing time and location are based on everyone’s stamina and will. Very fun and exciting.
    Iceland Highlight

    We are a couple from the U.S. and had an amazing time with our guide. After a week in Iceland this was a highlight of our trip. We felt very safe while hiking and climbing on the glacier. This is a moderately strenuous activity between the hiking and climbing. It was all very approachable and our guide helped us the entire way through. Not only did we learn a new skill (ice climbing) we learned more about glaciers and the natural resources of Iceland. 10/10 would recommend.
    Pure fear and excitement

    Bergus, ( I hope I spelled that correctly) was amazing. I was driven by pure fear and excitement on that glacier. His knowledge on the glacier helped in trusting him. We climbed a 25 ft glacier wall, the repelled the wall. He gave us information on how the glaciers were melting and how it was affecting Iceland. I would highly recommend glacier climbing to anyone that is looking for adventure.
    Amazing iceberg hiking and climbing

    An excellent experience. Bergur was a wonderful guide and the tour was out of this world. Literately like you were on another planet. Must do in Iceland. We were the only ones on the tour so the overall experience was very personalized.
    Best tour in our trip !!!
