“Ice cave and glacier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Fantastic experience on Breiðamerkurjökull despite the truly horrible weather that day. Oskar is friendly, positive and very professional. I felt in total safety during the whole walk. I especially appreciated Oskar's ability to help me logistically in taking pictures and his patience while I was using tripod + filters, shooting long exposures, ... Highly recommended for everyone and for serious photographers!
Some pictures will be visible here after April 2014: http://www.frostflowersphotography.com/gallery_435530.html

“Excellent guide !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

We booked an icecave tour with iceguide.
The day before the weather was really bad : it rained a lot.
In spite of these weather conditions, the guide propose another smaller tour in a different and more accessible icecave, more blueish, but no glacier walking.
We were equipped with helmets, climbing sets, crampons.
The cave was really great.
I wish we could go a little further than staying at the entrance but the river did not allow us through.
During this visit, the weather changed and the guide offers us the opportunity to walk on the glacier. It was such an experience and the view was breathtaking on the surroundings mountains, the sea and the glacier lagoon.
I recommend this tour, the guide Oscar is really friendly, professional and keen on explaining anything about glaciers, Iceland and so on.
We had a really great time!

“Best part of trip to Iceland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

In August 2013 we took the Glacierhike Breiðamerkurjökull-Glacier lagoon. It was absolutely amazing and the best part of our trip to Iceland. The views were breathtaking and our guide Oskar was also fantastic. He is a very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable person. He taught us a great deal about the glacier and Iceland itself.

We would recommend him to anyone visiting Iceland. His guidance on this glacier made the experience unforgettable to us. Thanks Oskar!
