We went on an amazing glacier hike with Melrakki Adventures. We chose it because it had smaller groups than the bigger companies. Our guide, Oddur, was great - he was friendly, knowledgeable, patient and an all around nice person. One the great things that they offered was to drive to the edge of the glacier, which saved us a lot of time (we saw that many of the other groups had to walk from a parking area to the edge of the glacier) and allowed us to be on the glacier for much longer period of our tour time. The trek on the glacier was very fun and Oddur took us to various interesting features on the glacier with amazing views. The pacing was great, he gave us appropriate time to take pictures and still got us very high on the glacier. The small group gave us ample opportunity to ask him questions and also allowed the group to go higher on the glacier as there weren’t as many of us to keep together.
Another great thing about Oddur is that he responded to all of my email questions promptly prior to the booking.
This was one of the best things we did in Iceland and I highly recommend both a glacier hike AND particularly this tour company.
