My wife and I took this tour on our honeymoon. It was possibly the coolest experience we've ever had. We explored Breiðamerkurjökull (still cannot pronounce). It was truly like we were on another planet, the landscape was unreal. Bjork was a fantastic guide and extremely knowledgable. She told us all about the glacier and it's history while keeping the tour fun and exciting.

The guide was absolutely lovely and informative. The journey was quite exciting at points as you’re in a superhero that seems to be able to drive over everything. Maybe it’s because we went in November but the cave wasn’t really very big, nothing like it looks in the brochure. It was still good and we enjoyed it but it’s quite disappointing if you’re expecting it to be like the promotional photos. At £130 each it was hard not to feel a bit ripped off.

Dear Stacey G, Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. We are sad to hear the cave did not meet your expectations. We can assure you that our website pictures are up to date. However, it is worth mentioning, that appearance of an ice cave is greatly influenced by such factors as the daylight and overall weather conditions. We sincerely hope you had a great experience in Iceland and we'll see you again on one of our adventures.

Our lead guide Fannar was awesome. He surprised our group with a new cave route that the other tours weren't doing that week. While the caves do change every season, what was different with this route was that since other tours weren't visiting it, we felt like we had the entire cave to ourselves. We even had the chance to walk across the glacier (which from my understanding wasn't initially part of the plan) and explore the area.

Honestly this was the hightlight of my trip to the south coast of Iceland. The caves are absolutely amazing and the top of the glacier is like you're on a different planet. For those who are hesitant about the hike: it's really easy (no hills), we are provided crampons and a helmet for safely walking on top of the ice and in the cave, we travelled at a very slow pace and the hike was really more like a 10-15min walk from the shuttle (which this is while we are already on top of the glacier so you don't feel like you are walking to get to the event - you are already exploring the landscape).

I want to again shoutout Fannar for he definitely has a lot of experience in this area and can answer any questions you may have. He's very passionate about making sure everyone has a great time and feels safe too. He provided a lot of insight into the how the landscape is formed and makes it very interactive (he cut into the glacier to show us the layers of ice and how clean it is below the surface). He also gave us a great recommendation for a dinner in Reykjavik (Tapas barinn) which was awesome.

Definitely would go again if given the chance!

Amazing experience led by our guide Bjork, a very knowledgeable and entertaining Icelander host! Her driving was excellent and she did a great job explaining the terrain and how the glacier changes over time. The cave itself is surreal, a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed!

We had a great ice cave tour with Fannar. Despite the rainy day, he still explained a lot about the glacier formation and everything around the landscape. It was the best science class we ever had and took some interesting information with us. Not only the ice cave itself was amazing but also the hike towards the cave. Fannar always took the time to stop and explain some more or answer our question. It really was a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you so much!

The people in the tour were the majority in their 30s. However, my mum and aunt who are in their 60s came along. It was a nice, easy stroll to reach the cave. It was an amazing experience. You have to take into account as sadly ice is melting, the cave is a differe one every year. We have to thank Axel, our guide, very nice and funny guy.
