Our tour guide Martin was awesome. Made sure everyone was safe and comfortable-making sure to keep a good pace for those in the back...(me) Martin took the time to educate us about the glaciers and Iceland. Would definitely recommend this trip! Beautiful views of the glacier.... you better get 'em while you can.

I was with my 16 yr old son on a "father-son" trip and this was one of our highlights. Our guide, Pascal, was informative, competent and took high regard for our safety.

The whole experience was great. The tour guides were welcoming and knowledgeable. The weather was perfect and we had a wonderful time! Heads up, the meeting point is at the airplane terminal, before the state park. We mistakenly drove to the park then had to go turn around and go back down the road to the airplane terminal building which is clearly visible as you approach. From reading other reviews we knew to bring a snack and there was time to relax and be still, which was welcome after the hike!

Expédition sensationnelle. Marcher sur un glacier, nous ne l'avions jamais fait. Visiter une grotte de glace : magnifique. Grimper avec un pic : très sympa. Avec en plus un super guide
