Had this tour been in America, you would have put all the gear on, walked to the bottom portion of the glacier, and taken a few good photos to send home. This was an authentic glacier hike where you got to hike to the top and really get the full experience. No climbing is necessary using harnesses or pick axes, just basic crampons, hiking boots, and a pick axe to help as a walking stick. I’d imagine this is much easier in the warmer months when the ice is soft. Had it been winter and the ice was more frozen, it’d be a lot more slippery. I’d say it is fine for all ages as long as you are in good shape. Our guide was great, spoke perfect English, and was able to provide some insight on Icelandic culture.
