This was my first Glacier Hike & it did not disappoint. Our guidelines was knowledgeable, patient & fun! Although the weather was gray & rainy we still experienced the rugged nature & beauty of the blue ice wonder.

Book it today! I can’t wait to go back.

Hello Beth, thank you for the review.
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the glacier walk with us.
The glacier can be truly beautiful in the rain as the blue ice is more prominent and the low clouds make it even more mystical.
We hope we have the chance to meet you again on your next adventure in Iceland.

Best regards,
Íris

Four of us in our group took the two hour basic glacier walk. You are provided with crampons and an ice ax, and are taught how to use them. You than take a van ride to the start of the trail, and walk a short way to the glacier, where the tour starts. Our guide took the group of about 15 over the glacier, stopping along the way to give us interesting information about this glacier, as well as glaciers in general. Be sure to dress warmly, and bring gloves! We found this informative and enjoyable.

Our group of six hiked the Svinafellsjokull Glacier with Ingi as our guide. He was very knowledgeable and showed us the glacier in a way we never would have seen it on our own or by air. It was very apparent that he loves his work and the beautiful outdoors of Iceland. Be prepared to spend about four hours hiking on the glacier. It can be physically demanding at times but never did we feel unsafe. Ingi was terrific! I highly recommend this tour.

Mat (think matious?) Was our italian guide who was an expert in glaciers. Really nice guy. Knew his stuff and i think his wife is a volcanologist...perfect guide knowledge.
Picked us up within 5 minutes of expected time and accomadated our extra suitcases without issue and the company rpelied to emails within minutes.
Ben was our glacier climbing guide (think he was from chile). Great guy and knew his stuff and took us on 1 small ish climb straight up (much easier than looks). Then a larger climb down and back up. Then through a small ice tunnel! Unexpected and this was on top of walking all over the glacier. Cold but not crazy cold.
Thry provide shoes (stiff) and crampons. You bring warm clothes. Hat dont need as have helmet but gloves i wpuld bring although they may give you a pair for free.
Wear waterproof trousers if you have them as get a ting bit wet in the rain.

This was an awesome tour, but you must be steady on your feet, You walk on rocks before getting to the glacier. Be careful and go at your own pace! It is an amazing experience with unreal views. It feels like you are on another planet. TOTALLY WORTH IT!
