Think this over before you book!!! I was dissatisfied with my experience with the Artic Adventures Ice Caving tour and I want you to know why. As a disclaimer: This is more than the tour being overly priced for an anti-climatic trip. Just a note about the other tours I have tried: I have participated in the Laxnes Horseback riding... More

This was a bucket list item checked-off. We originally booked this tour for the ice cave experience. In our minds, we would hike up to the entrance, walk into the cave to take beautiful pictures and get back onto the bus. Instead, Dave our tour guide brought us up into the mountains, trekking through both snow and the most beautiful... More
