Excellent day with glacier adventure on the morning then on the lagoon with their partner. Our guide, Andrea was really nice, taking care of her group, always willing to chat, helping with pictures... I would definitely recommend the glacier+kayak combo, a wonderful day.

This was certainly the most extraordinary experience during our Iceland trip and certainly something to remember for the rest of our lives. It was simply special and no words can describe how amazing our little adventure was. We could not have picked a better company than Glacier Adventures - a small little company run by locals. We booked our glacier hike in advance and when the morning of our hike came we realised that it was just me, my partner and our guide - we had the time of our lives. Our guide was simply incredible. He introduced us to glacier walking and took us to places we thought we would have never reached. It was just us three and the glacier - magical. I will never forget the spectacular views. We took the extended tour and in total including transport it lasted c6 hours - all worth it. If I ever return to Iceland it will be only Glacier Adventures I will look to book with. Thank you for helping us create unforgettable memories.

Haukur, our guide, was very kind, helpful, and informative. He made sure we felt welcome and that we were outfitted properly for the walk. His family has owned the sheep farm near the meeting point for generations, so he had many local connections and stories. He’s a great superjeep driver too! I’m still not sure how he can talk about all of the glacier info for 30 minutes straight while driving those crazy rough worse-than-F-road roads! Our daughter was struggling with cold on the trek, and Haukur even offered her his coat. I learned much about glaciers from him, and I have now checked “walk on a glacier” off my bucket list! The only negative was that we wished we could have kept moving more (keep warm, cover more terrain) and not stop for informative talks so much…but then again we learned a lot.

Competent and motivating guide. The car ride to the glacier was already an experience on its own. During the walk, we got great explanations and even a rope-secured peek into the moon wholes created by the water from the glacier‘s melting ice! <3
