“Must do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We met Thor (yes, it's his middle name) at Jökulsárlón and he took us for a 5.2 km hike up the glacier after a short, bumpy jeep ride pretty much offroading over boulders.

He was a wonderful guide, sharing knowledge and history with us while showing us glacier mills (moulins), crevasses, ash cones, underground streams, and all the differing colors -- letting us appreciate the wonders around us without crowding us.

He led us at a good pace and clearly knows the terrain very, very well. His charges are reasonable and he is definitely pretty capable, made a novice like me feel safe and fairly confident.
I loved the hike, highly recommend his tour.

P.s. he provided crampons to all of us and also lent me a pair of gloves since mine were soaked through from the lagoon boat trip.
