The tour was well paced, the guide took his time in explaining the ice formations, the pace of the glaciers, and how to put on equipment. He was willing to stop often for breaks and stops for the scenery. The walk was quite long and...More

Our guide was really nice, and the Ice tour was huge: almost 7 hours between glacier and a beautifull blue ice cave. Perfect!

I can't rate this experience high enough. My friends and I were blown away by everything, the beauty of the cave, the knowledge and expertise of our guide, and the vastness of the glacier. The glacier is truly breathtaking, and I'm so glad we went.

One of two highlights of our trip to Iceland. Our guide was fabulous and we had an amazing day walking over the glacier and visiting the ice caves. Would definitely recommend Iceguide!
