My tour guide was amazing and so accommodating, and customized the tour for the group.
Really amazing excursion, it was truly a once in a lifetime experience! Our guide was very informative, understanding, and fun. He let us have breaks and moved at our pace. Book this tour!
This tour was amazing! Very cool - even though it rained the entire day for us! The tour guides went above and beyond and were awesome!!! This was a really great deal - moneywise. You definitely feel as though you got your money's worth and more. The views were breathtaking and getting to experience the ice climbing was a once and a lifetime experience for me. There is a lot of walking - be prepared!
One of my favorite and memorable days. Definitely a must if you're headed to Iceland. I felt so safe and had a blast.
This tour was amazing. Our guide Röggi is the best guide ever. We got 2 freebie stops (seljalandsfoss and skogafoss)! The activity itself was fun. The ice climbing looked daunting at first but every single person in our group went and reached the top.
This was the best part of our trip to Iceland! Amazing views, such a lovely guide - Alberto was thorough and so lovely to have as a guide! And all the other guides we met were just as lovely. Truly worth every penny. You don't need to have any experience in ice climbing - Alberto put us all at ease and made sure we had fun and learned lots about the glacier and his job there. Can't recommend this tour and especially Alberto enough! :D
This was one of the coolest things we experienced in Iceland. We wanted to do more than just look at things/visit places, and this was the perfect tour for that. Hilmar our guide was very knowledgeable, and led us on a great hike. The ice climbing was a truly unique experience, and Hilmar made sure we were comfortable, and had enough time to enjoy it. Our group was small only 4 which provided us with a more personalized experience. Would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for an adventure.

This was an awesome experience-our guide zedke was amazing- instead of just a climb he took us to a moulin which we rappelled into the hole and then ice climbed out- truly great experience and then weather was per
This tour was spectacular! We spent 2 weeks in Iceland and hiking/climbing the glacier was one of our most favorite activities! I would rate it as challenging so be prepared to walk on uneven tourain in crampons. Wear layers and rent the boots to help you climb.
Best day of our trip. Exciting without being overly scary. A good amount of exercise without being exhausting. Awesome guides Swan and Boris!!!! Everything you'd expect, plus many more surprises I won't spoil.
By far our group's favorite activity we did in Iceland. Could not recommend enough. The guides were knowledgeable, fun, and made sure we were safe at all times.
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!

MUST DO! The most amazing and dangerous thing i've don in my travels! The ice climbing part is just a little wall you'll go up and down just to try out ice climbing... is not like the whole trip is about that. Is mostly Hiking to and from that spot. Still, really amazing. The only thing is I thing the group was too big for only 2 guides. It seams like a bit dangerous. It says no experience necessary, bur you should be at least in a bit of fiscal condition, since you'll be walking and going up and down for about 4hr in the cold. For me it was challenging and i'm in my 20's and in shape.
Amazing amazing is there word we used all day our guides ARMAN and GABRIELLE were fantastic we were quoted £1080 for the 4x from a dif tour, it only cost £695 worth every penny so professional felt safe all day , there knowledge is vast all mixed In with great humour all we can say is THANK YOU !!!
