What an experience! Equipment was in great shape - our guide was fun/knowledgeable - the views were spectacular. This will be on our next journey through Iceland, again.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2017

Awesome, thrilling experience!!! Due to bad weather our hike had to be rescheduled, luckily we had extra days spare so this was not an issue. Our guide was superb with excellent knowledge and spoke very good English. She even stopped to take photos of us at various parts throughout the hike and the safety of all in the group was her priority. Very cold and wet when we did our hike, so recommended that you wrap up! It was one of the highlights on our trip! Visited in October 2016.

This was the absolute highlight of our trip to Iceland and sadly, time seems to be running out for this opportunity with a rapidly melting icecap, so get in there quick! We were the only two on the hike so got a very personalized experience. Other groups out that morning were much larger so not sure how we got so lucky, but recommend the morning time because the guides told us those tend to be less crowded. The meeting place is only a 30 minute drive from Vik and a few other larger towns - an easy places for an overnight stay to make it easier to do the morning time. Our guides, Biggi and Ravi, were great - very well experiences, patient, and we were really able to talk with them and get to know them. We experienced several seasons in the few hours so be sure to dress appropriately - waterproof everything! Also, neither of us are athletes but in relatively good health. Might be difficult for people who cannot manage strenuous, uphill walking.

This was truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Our guide was excellent and the Sólheimajökull Glacier was simultaneously terrifying and beautiful.

This is a must do! Glacier climbing/hiking is definitely something you should not attempt on your own. Our guide was fantastic! He gave us a ton of information on the Sólheimajökull glacier and others as well. He answered all of our questions, was professional, and kept it informative but fun.

Our guide, Anna, was great.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

This tour was an excellent and unforgettable experience of a lifetime! I fully reccommend a walk on a glacier and booking it through Viator. Our guides Salsa and Valti were absolutely brilliant: full of knowledge and enthusiasm and they really cared for you, making sure equipment was on correctly and that we were all together as a group. There was only 12 people in our group much smaller than other groups that were walking on the glacier but we were still split into two separate groups! This was brilliant as we could really ask plenty of questions that Salsa always know the answer to and we really got that personal service!

I cannot rate this trip high enough and it really made our trip to Iceland more special than it already was! Highy recommended - you wont regret doing this trip!!

Nov 2016. I feel this tour could have been better. We had to wait for a group to arrivethey were late then it seemed it took forever for everyone to get ready and so subseqently we weren't out on the ice for long.
