The guide was awesome. I realize the caves are in constant change but what we visited was a hole in the ice. We could only walk about 5-10 yards into it, get some pictures, and leave. It was VERY underwhelming. We had to take turns viewing it as it was small. The rest of the tour was landscapes and walking at the base of glacier. Other groups seemed to be visiting "caves" that day.

The tour picked up in Vik (they had changed the pick up location from what our res says, but was easy to find). The drive to the glacier/hike is about 45 minutes through relatively flat but bumpy terrain that provides some good views of the mountains and glacier. The hike itself is not challenging, but provides a neat experience as you hike over ice at times and have to dig your crampons in. Once at the ice cave, there is quite a wait as only 4 people can go in at a time; however, this meant we got great pictures of the cave and were able to ask a lot of questions during the wait. Very scenic and easily our favorite tour while in Iceland. Our guide, Sven, was phenomenal...funny, engaging, and extremely knowledgeable about all things Iceland. We opted for the earlier tour and were rewarded with great weather, while the afternoon tour was hit with a snowstorm.

We took the full ice cave tour which was great ! The caves do change according to the season , so ask them before what caves are visited , It is a great adventure with children as you experience walking on a glacier with crampons , enter the cave , sea other attractions in the area and get a lot of information and advices from the guide . Thanks !

We did the fast track tour which was fine, but the ice cave itself was somewhat disappointing - it went maybe about 30 feet deep. You walked in, took a few pics and walked out. It seems like the really cool caves are saved for the longer tours - where you actually go deep into a cave and even crawl through openings. We enjoyed our hike to the ice cave, but afterwards regretted not getting the full experience. I was the only one in our group to bring a water bottle, and luckily got to fill up from a small waterfall. Best freaking cold water I’ve had in my life. Like I was sad when I finished my water and felt that all other water had been ruined for me.
