This was an all day adventure, the guides were knowledgeable and laid back. The scenery was breathtaking, the hiking easy, the ice wall climbing more difficult but so fun. Take your own lunch.

This was the highlight of our holiday. It was absolutely incredible and the views were amazing. Although it was overcast and we had a little rain, it didn't ruin the experience. This is a MUST DO when you're in Iceland - worth every cent! Sara and Kiddi, our guides were fantastic and made the tour even more enjoyable!

Fabulous day trip that I would thoroughly recommend. We were really lucky with the weather on a Saturday in mid January - clear blue skies, although very cold. The scenery was stunning. As others have said, do make sure you have layers of warm clothes and good boots. The walk on the glacier exceeded all my expectations and the 2 guides were very supportive of my attempts at the ice wall climb. I only managed to get up a little way but still enjoyed the experience! There were about 15 of us in the group from many different countries and ranging in age from early 20s to late 50s. Very good value for money.

Take this tour!! Guide Freyr was a very knowledgeable guide. We walked out 7k (over 4 miles) and had a chance to ice climb on a ice wall. All equipment needed was provided. be sure to wear good hiking boots and waterproof clothing and a hat. Layers would be best because you will warm up while walking. We stopped at the Gullfoss waterfall on the way back. Take this tour!!

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).
