My friends and I did the 3 hour glacier hike. What a fun day! Be prepared for all kinds of weather in one hike- we had rain, hail, and snow! All of us are in shape, workout regularly and we didn't feel the hike was difficult.. However it may be difficult if you don't exercise regularly or for kids. Our... More

Been to Iceland is a lifetime experience - the amazing nature wonders just blow my mind. I joined the 2 days tour to Skaftafell with Extreme Iceland, and too bad that I did not do enough planning and I did not even know Extreme Iceland before I arrived - I booked the tour somewhere else and finally I was with...

Went on this Ice Queen trip with my friend. It was definitely a lifetime experience. The shapes and formations of the ice are just amazing. I would call it art of highest quality. The guide was nice to. No stress and hurry, you could just sit there and enjoy it. And he told us a lot about glaciers too that... More

We booked the 1 day Ice Caving expedition. Man was this amazing. The Jokularson Glacial Lagoon is quite far from Reykjavik; this is not to be underestimated. The drive took us roughly 5 hours in clear weather conditions! Once you reach Jokularson Glacial Lagoon it will be all worth it. From the Ice Lagoon Café, we took a huge offroad... More

I went on the 2 day excursion to Jokulsarlon ice lagoon which was amazing, a wonderful experience. The guide / driver was very helpful and knowledgeable and the tour exceeded my expectations. I was very impressed with Extreme Iceland and will use them again the next time I visit Iceland. The scenery is very beautiful but without a guide I... More

I had the opportunity to take one of Extreme Iceland's 3 days and 2 nights tour that includes Ice Caving, Glacier Walk, and Jökulsárlón. I'll start with the lacking, and there's only one: having to have different guides for 3 different days. In essence, Extreme Iceland provided 2 different guides for day 1 and 3, whereas day 2 (Ice Caving)... More

I did the two day excursion to Jokulsarlon lagoon and didn't regret it at all. Our driver Helger was careful, punctual, VERY knowledgeable and thankfully, with a great sense of humor. It was a long drive made doable because of the superb scenery, the warm bus, the frequent stops for food, stretch etc and Helger's wonderful folk stories. Listening to... More
