My wife and I did this because we have no clue when we'll be able to see something like this. We were skeptical of the money being worth it, but man was it amazing. The off-road jeep ride was pretty neat, and they took us to a parking lot with other tours. After a half hour

We had a great hike over the glacier with Vjeran ♥. He showed us the most beautiful places on the glacier and let us drink fresh glacier water. My fiance was a bit scared to walk on ice with the ice shoes, but Vjeran guided here very well and she was running like a maniac ;-)

Disappointment! the 4 hours of promised activities are divided into about 40 minutes of travel to reach the starting point, more than 2 hours of chatter on the history of the glacier and of what is around, about 30 minutes of information on safety and equipment, only 20

Dear U9288AUstefanob, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. The safety of our customers is a factor we value greatly and we always have a safety briefing prior to the tour which we consider to be a crucial part of the overall enjoyment of the tour. We make sure participants do not simply sign off liability waivers, but also get familiarized with all the elements of the gear make sure it's put on properly, etc. We are sorry you found the process to be extended. It usually takes under 1.5 hours to get to the glacier. Hiking on actual ice is always one of the shortest parts of the hike since it is quite challenging. Please note that ice caves are natural formations and they might change, melt, fill with water and be affected by the weather conditions – that is why sometimes it may seem like the photos do not represent the reality. Lastly, we are happy to hear that you thought our professional guides are excellent – we believe they make up a very important part of the tour. We hope you enjoyed your overall stay in Iceland! Best regards, Laura S.
