Terrific tour. The guide is really knowledgeable (I dont remember his name, I think its Bjorn) and quite funny . We had some problem with the weather, because well, is iceland and the weather changes all the time. But in the end, everything went well.

Awesome experience! Our tour guide was great and the hike was so much fun!

The hiking on glacier was soooo awesome that I didn't expect.

Great experience. I took this tour during my recent trip to Iceland and really enjoyed the beautiful places we visited which made for some really great picture taking. We had some very extreme weather that day, everything from sunny blue skies to 50-60 mph winds with blowing sleet and snow. Even with the weather our guide Mike did a great job of getting us the various points on the tour and offering some great historical information on Iceland along the way. Really great tour, I highly recommend it.

Our trip was amazing the glacier hike is a one of a kond experience it is definitely a must when in Iceland. Our tour guide martin was so awesome and really nice during the hike he made sure everyone is doing alright. Tip for tourists please follow what your tour guide tells you to do so during the hike coz it is for your safety.

I loved the glacier hiking a lot as I got an opportunity to walk in the glacier and tried the ice there. It was fabulous

The glacier hike is definitely something to remember!

The hiking was find and safe but reasons that I only marked two are because my friend and I waited for a hour for the bus to picked up and we can't really heard what the guide saying due to the poor quality of microphone and we DID NOT go to the Skogafoss which was on the plan!


Awesome tour, very knowledgable guide - loved every aspect of it.

Simply put, Amazing! Our tour guide, Ásgeir, was simply phenomenal, he was very helpful, extremely kind, and overall the best company you can have for such a long trip. He kept us entertained with his overall kindness, humor and knowledge about the area, also took us to the wonders of the South Coast of Iceland, including but not limited, the waterfalls, Skogafoss, Seljalandfoss, the black sand beach Reynisfjara at Vik and lastly, the best part, hiking on a huge and gorgeous Glacier. During the trip we stopped at various stations for food, bathroom breaks and overall necessities. The route was simply well planned and smart. The tour was simply amazing. I totally recommend it to anyone as curious as me in search for wonders and adventures. You WILL NOT REGRET IT! You must see it for yourself!

Hi , what is the difference between this with other one of 210 USD?

It was awesome traveling in Iceland. It's my first to do glacier hiking,very good exercise.

It was great seeing all the beautiful parts of Iceland but one all of us has different versions of acceptable footwear and we still had to rent boots so it should state that you HAVE TO RENT THEM. The tour guide was kinda rude and my friend cut her leg open and he did nothing to help for over an hour. On the glacier he wasn't waiting for anyone and anyone could have gotten hurt and my friend actually did. When we finally got to the hospital the staff stated that the tour guide should of rushed her here because of the amount of blood she lost. Overall it was an alright expierence because of the natural scenery but in the end it seems like people around here care more about the money than anything.
