      Fantastic glacier trip.
      Had a fantastic hike up on to the glacier and into the cave. Brook was a very professional guide, very knowledgeable and always prepared to answer any questions. Scenery was amazing. Had a fabulous day.

      Great easy walk on the glacier
      We had a great time hiking the glacier with Brook; he was a super friendly tour guide, telling us anything from living in Iceland to of course facts about the surroundings. Lovely and would definitely recommend!

      We loved the Blue Ice Glacier Experience!!
      We did the Blue Ice Glacier Experience - our guide was Fi, and she was exceptional. We had perfect weather on the glacier where the rest of Iceland was freezing cold and windy. It was so enjoyable. We learned a lot of really valuable information about the geology of Iceland in the process and what's happening to the glaciers because of climate change. My teenagers loved this day, as did we. I had a bad knee and Fi went out of her way to help me find "workarounds" into the crevasses so that I could get the full experience without doing terrain that my knee wouldn't allow. Highly recommend!!

      Excellent guide + Magical scenery
      The tour fulfilled my long time wish to see blue ice. The scenery was magical & out of this world. Icing on the cake is excellent guide Emelia who is caring, competent & totally has participans’ interest at heart. She is also witty & friendly, always ready to render extra help to seniors like me. Too bad I didn’t have cash on me to tip her generously.

    We did the tour one day after a heavy rain. So many new ice bergs have been in the lagoon which was amazing to explore. Jose explained everything that we wanted to know and provided us with a great experience.

    Btw the lagoon is small and not impressive.

    We had a great time kayaking around the Solheimajokull Glacier Lagoon! Our guides were José and Fernanda and they did a great job showing us around. Both guides were extremely knowledgeable about the area. They also took some great photos for us to remember the experience! The dry suit kept us all warm and dry on the water, but the gloves do get cold when wet. We were the only tour group out on the lagoon making it all that more enjoyable without having to worry about lots of tourists. If you're looking for a tour that gets you close to the icebergs while learning about the Solheimajokull Glacier, this tour is for you!

    One of a kind experience! Beautiful views, peaceful and quiet, easy to navigate and follow our excellent guide Charlotte. She explained very well how the glaciers and lagoon formed, why we see the blue hues in the ice, how they ended up in the lagoon, what forms the ecosystem. We were lucky to see seals, curious to look at us, but at distance and disappearing quickly in the water. Such an amazing feeling, and honestly the time flew by too fast. We could have spent few good more hours there!

    From afar while hiking it looked a little silly, but when we suited up and got in the kayaks it was a lot of fun and very informative, interesting. Forgot the guide’s name but he was fun, humorous and quite knowledgeable. We went in and around the icebergs and amazingly close to the glacier. Remember folks, the glaciers are leaving us and they won’t be back.

    Geert was a great guide. It was so serene and beautiful. Emphasis was on safety (some of were 1st time kayakers!). Really fascinating hearing about the glacier that formed the lagoon and just the surreal nature of kayaking around icebergs. All participants wore drysuits, boots, and gloves for comfort. There is a short hike with the gear on to the shore of the lagoon. You then carry your kayak with your partner to the shore and launch from there

    The lagoon kayak was relaxing and beautiful but in my opinion not worth the money. It was a little drawn out as the lagoon is not very large. Very cool to see the glaciers up close and person however.

    Wonderful kayak tour. Our tour was cancelled for potential bad weather. But when we visited the glacier the guide, Geert, told us weather better and he volunteered to take up on private tour. Geert was very knowledgeable about the glacier. He took us behind the icebergs. It was absolutely beautiful. He was extremely safety conscious. Fun guide who even sang us a Dutch lullaby on request.

    Great experience! It was a nice, relaxing change of pace from the crowded tourist trail. Most people go on glacier walks, which meant it ended up being just the two of us on this tour.
    Geert was an awesome guide! You'll learn new things, feel safe, have pleasant conversations, and come away wanting to do more outdoor activities with him!
