It was great experience. Firstly We doubted if we would get aurora, because in Reykyavik so cloudy and rain at the time. But when we went out from city center, it was clear sky with stars. We had to wait each 20-30 minutes to see but close to midnight there was a huge and beautiful aurora. We were so lucky. Thx Darren for guiding us :)

The guides on the super jeep were very enthusiastic. They took us to see the ice cave and walk further to see more of the glacier. This tour is an absolute must! It is the most breathtaking place I have ever visited! Thank you

The guide was very good, he told us many interesting things during the whole trip, you could see that he was a person passionate about his work. The place is magnificent, unique, it left us speechless. Highly recommended!

Mega! after a long wait and "freezing" we still had the opportunity to admire the great spectacle thanks for the help that we were allowed to experience it !!

The visit to the cave is quick but the place is splendid
