    Paid 400€ for a tour that was changed to a 300€ tour due to bad weather conditions. Got refunded 90€. Sounds about right. Tour itself was okay but customer service experience subpar. +2h spent in transit, ~45min touring the cave.

    Good day Marko Thank you for posting your review. We are sorry to see that your experience with customer services was a negative one but we would like to explain a bit why the refund given was in this amount. The reason the refund was lower than your original amount is due to the fact that all our tours are sold in Icelandic Krona and that the currency rate between, for example, the EUR and the ISK can fluctuate a bit. We at Into the Glacier, unfortunately, cannot ensure that you are refunded the same amount in EUR as we are refunding you in ISK. If the ISK has decreased in value when again converted to EUR that is unfortunate but not something we can cover for you. We are sorry that your tour got canceled due to weather but we hope that you enjoyed the rest of your time in Iceland. Best regards Team Into the Glacier

    The ride up to the tunnel was just as much fun as the glacier itself. Great guide and all the people the so nice. Being an Icelander it was very mush informative and fun. Highly recommend it for local people as well as tourist travelling to Iceland and getting a trip they can’t

    It’s a 2 hour drive each way from Reykjavík to Husafell...then another 1 hour drive each way in their humongous bus, to get to the tunnel. Our tour was about 90 minutes...which was about twice the time necessary to wander around the 550 meter tunnel. In advance of the actual

    Good day Thank you for posting your review. Although we are sad to see that you did not like our product we thank you for taking the time to point out what you did not like as that is something we can improve upon. Our guides always try to underline the importance of safety and we rather want the importance of safety to be overstated rather than understated. The guide, however, is free to value the need to implement the specifics of our safety guidelines during the tour inside. Such as guests that want to take many pictures sometimes need to be allowed to do so. Regarding the information received, we will certainly be looking into this, as the points you mentioned should always be mentioned as they are considered part of the basic information regarding the tunnel which should be a part of the tour inside. We do know that the later trips of the day do start in twilight during December as the window for sunlight in that month is only around 4 hours each day. For those opting to visit the tunnel in daylight during wintertime, I would always recommend choosing an early departure. This being said we do thank you for pointing these things out and for submitting a review and we hope that the rest of your time in Iceland was pleasant. Best regards Team Into the Glacier

    A little out of my comfort zone. We had a large group in Iceland together and 10 of us decided to do this tour. Breathtaking. Never ever thought I'd be going INTO a glacier with the ice caves. Simply amazing experience. So very glad I did this.
