Great trip across the glacier and into the ice cave. Guides were very friendly, full of information, and readily showing us different things to look at and suggestions on how to take the best pictures. Definitely recommend!

Hike was not easy, but enjoyable. I accidentally booked twice for the same day and they emailed me to rectify this (proactively)

Oscar is great and the hike is ridiculously good!! We have done a hike on another glacier and this one takes the top price in my books by 10 fold. Must do in Iceland in winter.

It's pretty easy. (Just to be clear, we're talking about kayaking on the glacial lagoon). The lagoon is still water, so there's no paddling against the current. We found the pace to be quite relaxed, and our guide stopped... More
