I have just finished the Greenland Day Trip, guided by Hannah from Icelandic Mountain Guides (and booked through Iceland Travel).
It was a fantastic experience, and Hannah provided an excellent insight into Kulusuk, plus a fantastic boat ride around the icebergs, in a few short hours.
Prior to booking this excursion, I did read some negative reviews about this trip, but my experience was that our guide was definitely interested in providing the best insight into the local community / culture as she could.
I definitely recommend this trip for 2018.

I had the great pleasure to enjoy an amazing day with Icelandic Mountain Guides at Solheimajokull Glacier. What a terrific trip, 3,5 hours, hiking the glacier and even climbing a little.... experienced guides, safety all the way. Extremely knowledgeable, fun and willing to share great tips and stories. I highly recommend this to everyone that has an adventures bone in them

We had an amazing time with Michael, our interesting and fun guide. On our 2-hour glacier hike, we learned and saw so much--absolutely gorgeous! It felt exhilarating yet incredibly safe, and we loved being on the glacier! We recommend booking ahead and, upon checking in, ask about what layers to wear as we learned we were perhaps overdressed for the amazingly warm day. Really enjoyed and wish we would have had time for the climbing!

I did the five day laugevegur trek and had a fabulous time. Excellent and informed guide and beautiful scenery! Be sure to follow the packing guide closely, and don't underestimate the potential for cold and wet weather and ice-cold river crossings! My major complaint was they made me pay extra for vegetarian/vegan food, and I ended up having to cook by myself a lot, rather than with the group. I realize that sometimes vegan options can be more expensive, but in this case I was paying extra for cans of beans and Oreos while everyone else was eating a ton of meat and nice cheeses. I ended up feeling a bit resentful by the end! But otherwise, a great way to do the trek without having to worry about carrying all your gear and food for 5 days!

Terrific 4 hour glacier hike. Was the highlight of our two week trip to Iceland. Our guide Hanka was the best.
