Wonderful experience! We had a chance to join the group on the 13th of January. It was truly great to be under the ice and walk through the tunnel. IT WAS VERY COLD WHEN WE EXITED THE TUNNEL!!! :)

Fantastic experience led by very knowledgable staff who wanted you to have an insightful and good trip. Saw so many beautiful aspects of a glacier I never expected to see. I can’t recommed this experience high enough

The drive to and from the ice cave was informative and interesting. The cave itself was not much to see and not entirely worth the 2 hours in the bus to get to and from the top of the glacier. Also, the guides separated part...More

Good day Nichole Thank you for taking the time to write your review. It is unfortunate that you feel the trip to the tunnel was not worth it and we will take that into account now as we keep on improving the tunnel. The tunnel...More

Strongly recommend this trip, it was quite breath-taking. From Hotel Husafell we got into a monster truck for the journey (via Klaki base camp) to the glacier entrance. I can't remember her name but on the journey our guide was very informative and great fun....More

No special clothing needed. You need clothes to keep you warm, gloves, maybe a knitted hat because it is 0° Celsius inside. Hiking boots or shoes which have a good grip. If you don't have that, you can get hiking boots at... More

Into the Glacier (Langjökull Ice Cave) Tours (2 Replies)
I'm thinking about going to see the Langjökull Ice Cave from Reykjavik. It seems the most doable ice cave as a day trip. I was more hoping for Jökulsárlón ice cave but it's too far to do in a day. I've been looking at the different tour options by different tour providers that pick up from Reykjavik. They all seem to be about the same price and include almost the same things. The differences seem to be the pick-up time (some will start/end earlier than others) and maybe one sight (some say...More

Thanks! I'd rather do a bus tour as it's cheaper than the super jeeps. I will check these out though just in case.

Into the Volcano vs. Into the Glacier (4 Replies)
My wife and I will be in Iceland in May 2016. If we could only do one of these, which would you recommend? Thanks.

Response fromtravelingNYfamily|
Did both and all 4 of us would vote for the volcano by al HUGE margin. The Glacier is cool but really just a bunch of pretty ice. There are other options for that. Inside the volcano is stunningly beautiful. Be aware you need to be able to hike over rough terrain for about 45 min each way and then a 5 min moderately steep incline after a rest at base camp.

Doing a 12 day Ring Road Trip in July that is already full of activities, but looking to possible add a couple of more ( I realize all of these will be done on different days, not looking to fill a specific day) Here are my options: 1. Ice Cave under the Katla Volcano from Vik 2. Into the Glacier from Husafell 3. Glacier Kayaking in the HEINABERGSLÓN lagoon 4. Glacier Snowmobiling from GullFoss 5.

Personally I would do the ice cave from Vík, the kayak tour and a 2h RIB boat tour around the Westman Islands, if you can fit them into your plans.
