This was the highlight of our holiday. The glacier hike itself was the best part, having never experienced anything like it before I'd highly recommend this tour. We came away from this tour wanting more. The guides (both bus and hiking) were very enthusiastic about their job, this coupled with the amazing views and interesting facts made the day something...

About 21/2 hours of traversing... More

14 hours on a bus tour seems daunting and a dragged my enthusiasm a bit, but so happy I went along. I truly could understand the mystery and the term fire and ice when describing Iceland. Yes, I would do it again and pack another warmer rain layer

We called them directly and booked. Was a but surprised how "dirty" the glacier was due to the vulcano (and sand). We rented shoes and where able to lend rain jacket/pants for free (as well as gloves). Our guide was very nice and told us about the glacier as we went along. I would really recommend this as it is... More

Highly recommend this tour with the Icelandic Mountian guides! They pick you up at your hotel, and take you through some of the most unbelivable scenery. My husband, myself, and our 3 sons (29,27,24) took this tour and hiked through the mountains to the natural geysers then went glacier hiking. We did stop for lunch (although we had brought our...

This was a 1 hour walk on a glacier with a knowledgeable guide. That is very important as there are carvasses that you can fall through if not careful.

My wife and I are not adventure travellers usually, but we loved the Glacier Tour and the snorkelling tour with Scuba Iceland. These 2 tours made the trip so special. I was intimidated by the idea of climbing up the glacier but it was much easier than I thought it would be and I encourage people of all fitness levels... More
