Our tour guide, Axel, was very kind and informative. We learned a lot about the glacier and felt safe throughout our entire glacier cave tour. Do not miss the opportunity to explore the glacier and ice caves if you are visiting Iceland during the winter. This was an amazing experience!

Don’t miss the opportunity to hike on a glacier and walk thru an ice cave. It was a unique experience and it was definitely the highlight of my Iceland trip. The only negative comment I have is that I was given dull crampons. Make sure to check these when you receive them.

The cave is amazing, you have to walk two kilometers to the cave through rough terrain, and the guide goes very fast to follow it. Cave crowded with people, but it is beautiful and gives you time to see it well. Great the guide who stopped inside the cave to take all the photos we wanted
