We had an amazing time on this tour. The extra small group was perfect and being able to drive right up to the bottom of the glacier was such a bonus! Our guide Katerina was so knowledgeable about everything to do with the glacier and the local area. She also had great suggestions for other activities and places to see that weren’t well known to tourists. We hiked quite high up on the glacier much higher than all the other groups it was really an exceptional experience and I couldn’t recommend it more highly.
We did the 3 hour hike and really enjoyed it. I am 65 and in average shape- my son in 20s and in great shape. A bit strenuous for me but ok. Our guide stopped every so often and informed us of interesting facts which was lovely. She also helped us all at the bottom to get the crampons on and off which is a deal. Wonderful day with no rain! Beautiful blues in the glacier! I felt like I had accomplished a very cool and beautiful hike! Worthy!
This was perhaps our favorite part of our Iceland trip. An absolutely amazing experience. If you only book one excursion on the island, do this!! Antoine was our guide and we adored him. He was hilarious and knowledgeable. Entertaining in three languages. A great way to see the nature of Iceland.
This is hands down the best glacier hike tour! Having a small group made the experience so lovely.
Great guide! Nice views! Worth the time. Don’t forget to drink glacier water
