Guide made the adventure amazing!
Kellia_G, Nov 2022
Our guide was fantastic, we got more out of the tour than we expected aside from hiking (drank glacier water, climbed a glacier crack, went in a glacier ice cave), and we had such a great time! The views were spectacular and we lucked out with the weather and a rainbow. 10/10 would recommend!
Amazing Hike!
Ronald_S, Oct 2022
The guide, Simon, was excellent. The hike was the perfect level of difficulty for two active 50 year olds. The information shared by Simon reflected a deep understanding of the glacier and his passion for the glacier/Iceland was inspiring. We felt safe. We had an amazing hike!
