Loved this tour. Staff were knowledgable, had safety in mind the whole way across the glacier. Enjoyed the trek up to the glacier almost as much as the glacier experience. Beautiful scenery and lucky enough to have a day with a shining sun. A rainbow popped up as we got onto the glacier. Perfect

Well worth a visit - seeing the amazing landscape and blue ice on the glacier is not to be missed. You can choose to do the ice climbing of not so don't need a high level of fitness. I'd recommend the climb but my tip is to wear the boots they offer rather than shoes as mine were falling off.

Incredible! The sights, the scenery, the tour and facts about the Glacier were both interesting and great to know. The guys were chilled, helped everyone out and looked like they truly love their job. Jealous of their lifestyle!

This was a wonderful tour with very organized, knowledgeable and friendly guides. We hiked through a beautiful valley to get to the glacier and then spent about a couple of hours walking on the glacier and learning about all of its features. That day there was some difficulty in finding an appropriate ice climb but eventually one was found and it was a very exciting experience. I would highly recommend this tour.

Definitely a must do tour! You get to see the glaciers from an entirely different perspective. The guides were great and took their time with you to make sure you were safe, but also got the most out of this adventure. Make sure you pack warm clothes to wear and sturdy shoes.

Excellent tour. Jakob and Fjalla were great guides, a lot of fun, very informative, and obviously enjoying the expedition as much as we were. The ice climbing makes you feel like a total badass even if you spend a lot of time flailing like I did. (Wear very stiff boots or rent them; my hiking boots did not work at all).

This tour was incredible. The tour guides were fun and knowledgeable. You do not need to be experienced to do this tour. My mother (age 58) was able to hike with no problem and she is as beginner as they come! You do not have to participate in ice climbing, but I highly recommend that you try!

Valdi and Steve gave us a great tour. There were only 11 of us on this small tour which was a perfect size. We were picked up at our rental apartment just as the others were on this tour. Also dropped off several hours later at our apartment.

We did a few tours and this was the best of the bunch, not only were our guides very nice but also very knowledgable of the area and loved to get questions from us. Valdi is also a big fan of bad jokes so make sure you have a couple of bad jokes ready to share.

We spent a couple of hours on the glacier which took about 2 hours to get there but well worth the drive. The ice wall climb was only about 30 feet but a very cool experience and a must do. This was my first ice wall climb.

If you don't have sturdy hiking boots you can rent them there, all other gear is supplied free of charge.

I highly recommend this tour.

Awesome! So much fun. Guides were fantastic. Although young, both guides took their jobs and our safety quite seriously. Glacier was really cool and the ice climbing was super fun. The waterfall on the way home was an added bonus. This was definitely a huge highlight of our trip and an experience that I will never forget!

It's rated for everyone, BUT I recommend you can walk and hike on even ground for at least a mile before you book this tour. We went in March and really enjoyed the hike and the ice climbing. The guides were helpful and encouraging to those who were nervous or slower. Long time on the bus to get there, but worth the trip! If you enjoy doing things out of the ordinary, this is the trip!

Awesome. This tour was cancelled one day due to weather, but rescheduled. The day we went was raining, but we dressed appropriately and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The hike was long and the climb was short. I would have liked to do more climbing, but it does slow things down when in a group. The guides were great and safety was a priority.
