Traveler Tips


The drive to the ice caves was very bumpy on uneven terrain so just be aware that you'll be driving for 40 minutes with at least 25 minutes in a bumpy rude.
The hike through the ice cave only takes about five minutes then you’re out in the crater.

Miami ❤️ KATLA with Troll Expeditions
Vivian_P, Sep 2021
Cuba was an AMAZING guide! Knowledgeable and funny too. The drive out was a lot of fun and breathtaking scenery that we would not have seen if we weren’t off-roading in their Super Jeep. KATLA ice cave was spectacular. The hike alongside the face of the glacier was out of this world. The only complaint is that we had to stand around and wait at least 1 hour to enter the cave. Only 4 people are allowed in at once and the tour guides do not regulate how much time a particular group spends inside the cave. We definitely recommend this tour!

We went on this tour. It was a very interesting tour. Our bus got a flat tire on the way, but the team had it changed super quick! Our guide, Michelle, was great. The ice cave itself was cool. The hike to the ice cave was super interesting! Recommend this tour!

Marion_S, Jul 2021
Don't do this expedition in summer, it does not worth it, with this so expensive price. And 3h to see what we saw !!!
Last minute trip cancelation!
Danijela_A, Jul 2021
Very irresponsible company. Don't book tours with them!!! They canceled our trip 15 minutes befor the start!!! And for what reason? Their car broke down, and that's it! They didn't bother to find another car. I came all the way from Reykjavik to Vik, just to hear your tour guide say to me that the tour is all together canceled!!!! Sorry! You never send me the e-mail, or sms. I drove for 2.5 hours. This has never happened before in my life!! If you have just few days in Iceland don't loose your time with these guys!!!
Fun cave tour and overland trek

Great tour! Beautiful views and such a great ride thorough the volcanic ash. We caught the cave at a perfect moment and were able to get some great pictures and a fantastic experience!

Temperature Warming up
Carra_F, Jun 2021
Our guide was awesome. The drive to the ice caves was very bumpy on uneven terrain so just be aware that you'll be driving for 40 minutes with at least 25 minutes in a bumpy rude. Temperatures were warming up too rapidly at the end of May so our guide took us to the really cool initial cave but we weren't allowed to get too close because it was basically a waterfall with how rapidly it was melting. It still looked awesome from a distance. He then took us a bit further in the Super Jeep to a very small cave that didn't look nearly as cool but I appreciate that with the warmer weather they did their best to find a cave that was safe to walk around in. The surrounding scenery was amazing though. The beautiful black mountains covered in green was totally worth the trip. I would definitely doing this, but I advise you do it during colder months like November- March.

Gorgeous Tour

Amazing tour, very knowledgeable guide. They provided all the equipment I needed and the tour group is kept small for safety. A must see while in Iceland!
