Our two families from New Jersey, USA had a great experience with Bjork doing a tour into the magnificent ice caves at Breidamerkurjokull today. She loved her homeland and was so happy to share the legends of this beautiful country.

She took time to explain local lore and do geological lessons with the kids as well. She took photos for us, brought us into every region of the caves and was wonderful in every way.

Absolutely perfect! Thanks Bjork keep sharing your love of Iceland. I love it too!

An energetic guide, Funmar, took us for a tour of the Ice Cave in his modified vehicle. We found the ice caves to spectacularly beautiful. An other worldly experience. I appreciated that Funmar took our safety very seriously. For example, her ensured that we were all wearing our helmets before we went into the ice cave. Also despite the very rough terrain, he took air out of the tires of our vehicle while driving in order to reduce the bumpiness of our ride. Funmar was very gracious in taking photos of all who wished them. He was also very knowledgeable and shared amazing insights such as the 1000 year old water dripping from the caves and pointing out the embedded crystals that the glacier had formed in the nearby rock. I guess what I liked the most though was his enthusiasm and friendly attitude. I would definitely recommend Funmar and tour company for an Ice Cave adventure.

We visited the ice cave with our guide Fannar, who kept us informed, entertained and interested in equal measure throughout the excursion. From the impressive off-road vehicles to his knowledge of the glacier and the ice cave itself, through to his ability to keep a precocious 12 year old entertained, we could not have wished for a better guide. The ice cave itself was somewhere between awesome and breathtaking, with the glacial scree slopes leading up to it positively other worldly, a highly recommended visit.

We did this tour with an amazing woman, Björk, who was funny, safe and prepared. The driving approach to the cave with 4x4 was hilarious, the walk was totally affordable with Björk that made pauses to explain everything about the glacier and surroundings. The cave looked like in the pictures, even if it was not a sunny day, with a very deep blue color.

We took an ice cave tour with Fannar and Bjork. They are the best tour guides we've had in Iceland! Very informative (explained how glaciers work, history, how the caves are formed), answered all our questions and had lots of great stories, super funny and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience including taking photos of all the individuals/separate groups in the tour. The ice cave was absolutely gorgeous, you should definitely include a tour in your itinerary if you are here during Sep-beginning of April. I plan to come back to Iceland (specifically in the summer to see the highlands) one day and will definitely be using this company to plan a private curated tour. Highly recommend!

Had an amazing experience with our tour guide Bjork. We were picked up at the glacier lagoon, taking a 30 minute drive to the glacier followed by a 30 minute hike to the actual cave itself. Bjork was super friendly and knowledgable, helping us take the best pictures and learn about the history of the glacier. We spent about an hour walking around the different parts of the cave, which is just absolutely breathtaking. The whole experience was 3 hours long, and it was definitely worth it! Bjork made a point of coming over to wish us a safe journey back after we had mentioned our horrible drive there through snowy roads in a front wheel drive - note to self, next trip to Iceland hire a 4 wheel drive :) Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Iceland, 100% worth the money

Loved the ice cave tour with our local guide Fannar. We had plenty of time to explore and take photos in the cave and got to learn very interesting facts about the glacier + area around it. Fannars passion for his work and home was contagious and overall it was a great experience - highly recommend it!

Fannar was a great guide. He had so much information to share and his excitement for us to see the cave was really energizing. He shared a lot of knowledge with us. The cave was mind-blowing. The cave was a bit busy, but Fannar kept us busy with interesting stories so that we could have a more quiet time in the cave which was much appreciated.

We really had a lot of fun on this tour (us and our 6 year old daughter). Our guide Fannar supplied us with a lot of really interesting information during the ride to the drop off. On the walk he also kept our excitement up by telling a lot about the nature we were seeing.
In the cave he took a lot of time for everybody explaining things and taking the best possible pictures of us. The whole trip was very relaxed with no rush like it is sometimes the case. We really had good time and would go on a trip anytime again with Fanar. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

What an unforgettable experience. First off, we had rescheduled our honeymoon to Iceland 3x and each time their support personnel were helpful and made it so easy. Now back to the experience! We arrived early for our trip into the glacier and could not have had a better time. Our guide, Kiddi, was absolutely amazing. He was friendly, knowledgeable, funny, and really made the experience fun! This adventure was one of our favorite experiences in Iceland and I would 10/10 recommend it to anyone! If you can, ask for Kiddi, he is a great guide and deserves to win the contest between guides!
