    We've had an excellent experience on the glacier and with Melrakki. Due to bad weather we were given the choice between the long tour or a shorter one. We opted for the shorter one of 3 hours. The young and very experienced owner, Oddur, took us straight to the foot of the glacier where we had a beautiful and exciting tour with loads of information. The description of the tour is very honest, the small group of 6 was perfect and made personal contact with Oddur and the rest of the group easy. Because of the shorter tour we almost immediately got a refund. I would recommend Melrakki to everyone looking for a great glacier experience

What people are saying about Eastern Region, Iceland

Fantastic guide, Franzy, was super friendly and had great facts to share about the glacier. This tour is perfect because they drive you right up to the glacier so you don't have to walk through the valley, thus spending more time actually on the glacier. All necessary gear is included, too. Group size is perfect--you don't end up waiting around for lots of people to get it together. We did the 9:00 tour and had the glacier to ourselves, so nice. Definitely book this one!!

We had an amazing experience on our glacier hike, our tour guide was great. She explained everything from how to wear the gear to how to walk on the glacier. She was very knowledgeable, patient, nice and helpful!!

This trip was awesome!! The guide Tamara was so interesting and told us so much about the ice lagoon. I feel lucky to visit it and recommend it to everyone. SAFE AND adventurous.

Highly recommend! They were easy to work with, allowed us to reschedule when bad weather came up, and we had a knowledgable guide. Great experience

The guide girl was super nice and the tour amazing. Having a little group was the key. I hardly recommend booking this tour.
