Absolutely amazing tour! The man they call "Sven" (real name unknown) was our very entertaining and funny guide. Top notch tour: lots of educational elements, very safe, and the huge truck we drove in was a beast! Troll Expeditions is the one to go with.

Siddi was our guide and he made the entire trip. He was very knowledgeable and engaging. The trip was fun and educational. Amazing adventure with an amazing guide, if you get a chance to do a tour with Siddi as your guide you won’t be disappointed.

Good tour overall but deceptive title
david_c

We got to do their Katla Ice Cave tour with Sveinn. He is hilarious and very knowledgeable. The tour itself is great but has a deceptive title. You do go into an ice cave but this Cave is about 15 feet long by 4 feet tall. Can barely hold 4 people inside. The meat of the tour is mainly walking around the Glacier and learning about it. It is a very good tour and fun guides (sveinn and hendrick) who will teach you a lot. Just don't think of it as an ice cave tour. Think of it as a "Glacier up close" tour

Our Katla Ice Cave tour got cancelled due to weather conditions but Troll & Viator were nice enough to reschedule us on the Vatnajokul Ice Cave tour instead at no extra cost. The tour guide was experience, funny and full of passion. Would highly recommend this tour to everyone visiting Iceland! The cave is so unique and the walk to the cave is also very interesting and easy enough for everyone to do (I am 5 months pregnant and I could do it with ease) They take safety very seriously and you are provided with helmets and high quality crampons. Loved our experience and would definitely do it again :) Thank you Troll & Viator!

Miami ❤️ KATLA with Troll Expeditions
Vivian_P

Cuba was an AMAZING guide! Knowledgeable and funny too. The drive out was a lot of fun and breathtaking scenery that we would not have seen if we weren’t off-roading in their Super Jeep. KATLA ice cave was spectacular. The hike alongside the face of the glacier was out of this world. The only complaint is that we had to stand around and wait at least 1 hour to enter the cave. Only 4 people are allowed in at once and the tour guides do not regulate how much time a particular group spends inside the cave. We definitely recommend this tour!

We went on this tour. It was a very interesting tour. Our bus got a flat tire on the way, but the team had it changed super quick! Our guide, Michelle, was great. The ice cave itself was cool. The hike to the ice cave was super interesting! Recommend this tour!

Last minute trip cancelation!
Danijela_A
, Jul 2021
Very irresponsible company. Don't book tours with them!!! They canceled our trip 15 minutes befor the start!!! And for what reason? Their car broke down, and that's it! They didn't bother to find another car. I came all the way from Reykjavik to Vik, just to hear your tour guide say to me that the tour is all together canceled!!!! Sorry! You never send me the e-mail, or sms. I drove for 2.5 hours. This has never happened before in my life!! If you have just few days in Iceland don't loose your time with these guys!!!

Temperature Warming up
Carra_F
, Jun 2021
Our guide was awesome. The drive to the ice caves was very bumpy on uneven terrain so just be aware that you'll be driving for 40 minutes with at least 25 minutes in a bumpy rude. Temperatures were warming up too rapidly at the end of May so our guide took us to the really cool initial cave but we weren't allowed to get too close because it was basically a waterfall with how rapidly it was melting. It still looked awesome from a distance. He then took us a bit further in the Super Jeep to a very small cave that didn't look nearly as cool but I appreciate that with the warmer weather they did their best to find a cave that was safe to walk around in. The surrounding scenery was amazing though. The beautiful black mountains covered in green was totally worth the trip. I would definitely doing this, but I advise you do it during colder months like November- March.

Amazing tour, very knowledgeable guide. They provided all the equipment I needed and the tour group is kept small for safety. A must see while in Iceland!

Bit overpriced for what we saw
Katerina_M
, Feb 2021
The travel guide was awesome, the landscapes we have seen were stunning, the ride was fun as well. Unfortunately for 90£ we haven’t really seen that much of ice caves. We walked like 10metres in and for the rest it was unsafe. I completely understand that safety first and that they must pay for fuel and tour guide’s salary, but for the price we were expecting a bit more.

Cave closed without information

The Cave was not possible to Enter and we were not informed. We had a Nice ride in the super Jeep to the area around the Cave but didn’t live up to the expectations at all described in the tour description.

Bit of a let down.
Michelle_H
, Sep 2019
Mother Nature didn’t cooperate for our visit and it poured rain but it was still a unique experience. I was a bit disappointed with how small the ice cave was and the little time we spent therein. The hike through the ice cave only takes about five minutes then you’re out in the crater. I guess I was hoping for a longer hike with more to see. If I had the chance to do it over again I’d travel to Vatnajokull and do a tour of an ice cave there.
