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.
100% recommend this 5 hour glacier hike, you get to explore so much more of the Glacier vs the 3 hour. Our guide was so awesome, he knew so much about the glacier, filled the group with confidence and even went to the trouble of setting up an abseiling rope so we could get a closer look at a huge crevace waterfall. Truly amazing and can’t thank him and troll expeditions enough!!
5 hour glacier hike was amazing. Boring was the guide and was excellent. Very glad I read up and decided on 5 hour tour vs 3 hour tour. Between gearing up and getting to glacier, 3 hour leaves little actual time on the ice. Meanwhile the 5 hour allowed us to have lunch with epic view and time to explore an ice cave(not usually there got lucky)
We didn’t see the ice cave (maybe a super little one) but all in all it was awesome. Glacier hike, glacier science, glacier guide Adam was fantastic. Thanks! It’s sad that this glacier will be gone very soon. We were at the Falljokul
Good walk but quite sporty A good climb with a good vertical drop
