We jumped on a tour last minute not knowing really what to expect and our tour guide Solvi I believe was his name...was very informative, helpful and patient with everyone on the tour. The pictures we took don’t do it justice! It was gorgeous!

My husband and I went on the Blue Ice Experience and it was great! I will say that the Blue Ice Experience is described as a 'glacier walk' and I don't feel like that's very accurate. It was for sure more of a hike. I...More

Hello and thank you for the question. If you have the time, I recommend stopping in Skaftafell. The surroundings are stunning and the area is part of Vatnajökull National Park (Vatnajökulsþjóðgarður).
