Enjoyed the tour very much. Best experience in Iceland. We had so much fun. Our tour guide Mark has been awesome. He's talented and very knowledgeable. Definitely a must do when in Iceland.

It was great and unique experience, but wish it was little bit longer.
Out of total 3-hour length, we only walked over the glacier little less than 1 hour.

Fantastic experience. Safe, relatively easy going hike with a very knowledgable guide. Perhaps our favorite experience in Iceland, which at baseline was incredible to begin with! Well worth the time and money.

The glacier hike was great. Not too short and not too long.
We got explanation how glacier are created. Walked with crampons on the glacier. Saw moulins. Drank testy glacier water. And more...
This great job was done by our guide. Danny from Sweden.
Thanks for the great experience!

Just great! Small group out on the glacier. Guide was great and learned a lot about the glaciers and the local geography and even history. Wonderful experience and pretty easy for beginners to ice hiking.
