We had an incredible day hiking the glacier with our guide, who took the extra time to explain to us many geological details about glaciers and the surrounding area as we had a lot of questions (coming from Florida!). Amazing experience and top notch service. Highly recommend Melrakki Adventures - for a more personalized experience. (Our guide also let us try ice climbing, since we had been very curious about that too!!).

Date of experience: September 2019

Really nice Tourgide who explained us not only many interesting things about the glacier, but gave us useful advice for our trip in Island, too! Driving to the glacier instead of walking there gives you more time on the glacier itself and the smaller group of people makes the experience even better.

Thank you for the amazing tour!

Great Experience!! Melrakki Adventures is a new company with small groups of 8 and the ability to drive closer to the glacier than most other tours. This cut off 20 minutes, of useless walking, both ways. We did the 4 hour climb with a 12 and 13 year old girl and made it to the highest point possible. The pace was good and we made several stops to rest, take pictures and look around at the scenery while our guide, Katarina, gave us information about glaciers. We were even lucky enough to experience an ice cave in August, which is a very rare find I am told. I highly recommend this company.

Thank you so much for this review. I'm glad you've liked your Adventure trip to the icefall of Falljökull with Katerina, and yes, the cave is a nice extra thing in the summer time! Thank you for joining us

This walk was so much fun given that we booked the trip at 9 o’clock in the morning and we were alone at the glacier. Katerina was so kind, helpful and explained us a lot of stories about Iceland and glaciers. We were so lucky to be only the three of us and we would repeat the experience without any doubt!

All what you read about unique landscape, impressive sensations, feeling like doing something that very little people can do and seeing something that might disappear if we don’t take care of our planet... is absolutely true.
(But to be honest, this is also true many times and places over Iceland... )
So I wanted to especially focus on Oddur generosity and willingness to share those treasures of his land with an Spanish family (starting by organising a very particular excursion with us, two adults and two children running late to get last excursion of the day).
Oddur made this experience even more beautiful. He told us many interesting things and in a way that they are still fresh in our minds (my two sons still tell some of them...). He adapted the route to my youngest child while ensured this didn’t mean less emotional experience. We enjoyed a lot.
Thanks a lot to Oddur to give us such a nice view.
Strongly recommend to anyone visiting Iceland.
Rgds.
