First off, yes, it is stupid expensive - but everything in Iceland is expensive. That being said, this was the best tour of our trip. The views were breathtaking - we had a clear, nothing-but-blue-sky type of day. Tour guides were really great, perfect English, humorous and fun. The experience of actually climbing up the glacier with all the gear was the highlight of the day. But it really was a perfect day.
Very fun day but very long. We had terrible weather and a traffic accident so we were a bit delayed arriving to the glacier. The driver and the guide were both excellent and managed to show us a very good time with expert guidance and information about geology. I would recommend bringing waterproof pants, gloves, jacket and boots with lots of layers underneath!
My son and I had the experience of a lifetime on this tour! If you want interaction with Icelandic nature, this is for you. I successfully did my first ice-climbing at the old age of 64 ! with first rate instruction from guides Norris and Biggy. I can't use enough superlatives to describe this adventure. Learning about glaciers by experiencing one first hand with knowledgeable guides is not to be missed when you're visiting Iceland.
Iver. Iver. Iver. Ask for Iver! He was the best tour guide ever!!!!!!!! He was so smart, funny, and adventurous. You could tell he really cared about giving us an experience of a lifetime. This tour is a must-do. It is unlike anything else you will do in your life. The views are absolutely breathtaking. You spend about 3 hours on the glacier hiking - dress warm!!!! They also offer rental boots which I highly recommend for an easier hike! Also, bring handwarmers!
The ice climbing is definitely one of the highlights of my trip! And the guides were greats: funny and knowledgeable
Highlight of our holiday! Really enjoyed the hike and the ice climbing. Great place to take pictures!
What an amazing experience to hike on the glacier, picnic on the glacier and try out ice climbing on the glacier. The guides were very experienced and passionate about their work so they could tell you all sorts of stories and information about the locations and the features of the glacier. The glacier is not flat and rather difficult to walk on so make sure you wear good hiking shoes or rent a pair from them. Definitely a must do!
The guides were excellent- very prepared,knowledgeable, and engaging! The views and overall experience were incredible - and we loved the ice climbing introduction!! We were the envy of our friends when we got back - ha!
Absolutely amazing experience. Walking on the glacier was really fun. A bit scary at first but once you get used to the crampons it is really enjoyable. The views are spectacular. The ice climbing was a bit harder than I thought but still manageable and fun. Overall this was a brilliant experience and I highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys a bit of adventure and doing something a bit different.
Arctic Adventures and their guides Bigbi, Jonas and Henrik were great! They were very patient and informative and most importantly, very safe. This tour is a definite MUST DO on any trip to Iceland! The country has a vast beautiful landscape, but the view from walking on top of the glacier is unfreakingbelievable!!! Definitely take your SLR because your iphone will be an injustice to its beauty! And the Ice Climbing was tough but a once in a lifetime experience! Def recommend to everyone. If you're reading this, STOP and BOOK IT!
