If the Ice Cave experience can be described as mesmerizing, the ride to it ( from Jokulsarlon Cafe ) and back was nothing short of thrilling . A monster of a 4WD truck with giant wheels as high as a small car, the ride was in equal measure uplifting and free-falling as Oskar ( an Ice Guide in every sense... More

My friend and I rented a car to make the 5 hour drive from Reykjavik to meet the tour at Jokulsaron to see the ice cave. It was well worth it! We were speechless when we set foot in the cave. There was a fresh layer of snow from an unexpected storm the night before which, according to Oskar, made... More

3 of us travelled to Iceland with the hope of being amazed by the ice caves! The drive is further than we thought from where we were staying in Selfoss, which meant we would arrive too late - Oskar was great at communicating with us about going on a replacement tour the following day, however it rained all night causing...

Oskar offers a tour with an unforgettable experience. Not only the cave but already the drive to the bottom of the glacier is part of this feeling. If you hadn't know which ground can be counquered by icelandic SUVs you'll see on this tour too. The cave itself is very impressive - even for people like me which have already... More

Oskar is an awesome fun guy and very knowledgeable. The ride is super cool, scenery is breathtaking, and the caves an absolute must. Practical stuff... meeting point is the glacier lagoon. There is a little coffee shop and bathrooms there. Oskar provides the equipment needed, in our case crampons and hard hats. If you take the afternoon trip the coffee... More

I saw the reviews here from Iceguide and booked my tour with them. It was the best choice! Oskar is passionate with what he does and knows a lot about the area and the caves. We felt very safe! It was an adventure since we had to help another car that was stuck in the snow and that was fun!... More

A must-do if you're in Iceland, totally worth making the trek from Reykjavik for. The glacier is amazing and I cannot say how marvelous the ice caves are. Oscar is very cool and knowledgable. Bring a good camera, I wore a GoPro as well, and the video came out fantastic. If you're curious about the price, once you see the... More

Can't say enough about the beauty of the cave we were privileged to visit. It's trite, but the pics truly can't do it justice. Bring a tripod and enough memory on your card. I could have spent hours taking pics, but the time we spent there was unhurried and we had a wonderful experience. Why Iceguide and not some other... More
