This was one of our favourite experiences on our trip. We'd purposefully booked with Asgard for the smaller group size (and we were fortunate that it was only us two in the end) and for the longer time on the ice. It was most definitely the right decision! The waterfall afterwards is a nice little addition too. Our guide, Kiddi, was fantastic. I can't praise him enough. Calm, unflappable and knowledgeable. I always felt safe with him, and he dealt with my nervousness at abseiling with such patience. Encouraging, but without ever forcing me to do something I wasn't comfortable with. Good briefing before trying ice climbing and helpful tips to improve. He had a good knowledge of the glacier too, and the smaller group meant we could get off the beaten track and were often walking in untouched snow. Such breathtaking views!

Thank you soooo much Nicola, for your kind words! Believe me, they´re especially valuable now, if you know what I mean. I really love the fact that you picked Asgard as your adventure provider, due to the smaller group size. We whole heartedly believe that´s the way to experience new places and activities. With few people and a fantastic guide. Happy to hear you met Kiddi, he´s a star. We are extremely lucky to have him on our team. It´s an art, to go off the beaten track without leaving a trace. Again, thank you for taking the time to share your Asgard experience. Be safe, and if you ever find yourselves in Iceland again, you know where to find us:-) Kind regards: Ásdís, Asgard

This was one of the experiences at the top of my list. The view of and on the glacier was breathtaking! Our tour guide ‘Bright’ was super lovely and informative and very passionate for his role. A lot of hiking until we got to climb up and down an ice wall, which was an unforgettable experience. One of the best tours during my time in Iceland.

My wife and I lucked out as we were the only people touring that day and wound up with essentially a private tour. Our guide Sigurpáll A., was absolutely fantastic! He was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and made us feel safe. The glacier was beautiful and Sigurpáll found a great moulin for us to climb up. He thought us sa the basics on how to climb, was very encouraging and gave us a most memorable experience.

Gaddi guided three of us - my wife and I, plus another visitor - for a stunning ice climb and glacier hike on Sólheimajökull. Asgard Beyond was incredibly professional and responsive beginning with the booking process. Our guide, Gaddi, was super experienced on the glacier, instructive on climbing technique for us noobies, and ensured that during our 5+ hours together we had a laid-back and personalized experience. We felt we got our money's worth: high-quality customer service and equipment, a highly knowledgeable guide, and a gorgeous (and challenging!) glacier excursion.

Awesome small-group (we were 3 + guide), personalized experience that you probably won't get with any of those other 20-people ice climbing tours you see around! After a short intro we were able to test our skills on a few climbs of different difficulty so everybody was properly challenged and also able to work on technique (and actually learn some ice climbing basics). Ragnar (our guide) was great, very knowledgeable and always ready to provide some in-depth info on ice climbing and Iceland in general. No matter if you just want to try ice climbing once or are actually looking for a short but more in-depth introduction to it, this is the way to go!
