Great experience and guided tour

Awesome hike onto the glacier and into the ice cave. Ryan, from Omaha, was a terrific guide. Also a great photographer for the group. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the glacier and the ice cave formations. And he is very friendly and overall it was a great experience. Definitely a must if you’re traveling to Iceland.

One of a kind experience hiking up the glacier, we had a great tour guide that really showed us two caves, which were also beautiful. Be aware when booking though that this is 4.5 hours away from Reykjavík. We were able to quickly change our reservation to the afternoon time once we realIzed how far we would need to travel to get there.

We were lucky enough to meet our guide - Jessica. She is really helpful and meticulous. She shared with us many information about ice caves and glacier. Her laughter made this whole trip better!
