Skaftafell: 5 Hour Glacier Hike Adventure
- Small group
- Duration: 5 hours
We were meant to take a morning tour but had unforeseen car troubles and were afraid we would miss our tour. Ryan was so understanding and allowed us to join the afternoon tour instead. Janet was our guide and absolutely AMAZING! She was so knowledgeable about the glacier and ice caves--taking us to three ice caves during our visit as well as all over the glacier. She was so kind and helpful to my in-laws,who were on the tour with us and needed to take a few breaks throughout. She made sure it was a wonderful experience for our entire group, and she took picture after picture of us! This was absolutely the highlight of our trip to Iceland-- the weather was incredible, the area was gorgeous, and it felt like a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Thank you, Janet and Ryan!
Really good guide , really informative and fun. We found a crazy weather with snow storm which makes the things a bit difficult usually but actually we had a great and really adventurous time. We were only 4 people , which was better , and we managed to see 2 caves - blue diamond and black diamond. Due to the weather we couldn’t see a third one but the guide made the tour in the black cave really amazing , making us going through a small tunnel inside ( we had to crawl there ) and this was really exciting! I really recommend it
The whole tour is an adventure. To get there you are transported by super-jeep closure to glacier. The road is not really the road but it is extremely funny. The guide was local, so ut was more interesting to get more information about the life of local people. We highly recommend you to visit. It is worth of money - the whole tour took us close to 4 hours and most of the time you are spending in the glacier.
Had a wonderful experience. The best tour in Iceland. David was a fantastic guide, friendly, cheerful and knowledgeable. Luckily there were less participants therefore we got to see some extra places as well. Also witnessed northern lights. Transportation, accommodation, meals and schedule, everything was quality and nicely organized. Will recommend everyone to choose this tour.
Great company, amazing guide who told us a lot about Iceland and the glacier in particular. He also took the time to take pictures. I would really recommend to go with a small group, you have the ability to park nearby the glacier then and it's great that you can easier interact with the guide.
