What to expect
The tour can take 4 to 6 hours depending on location and weather. We will start by driving for about 35-45 minutes to the location where we will start the walk towards the glacier. Walk in the wild surroundings where the glacier has formed the nature will take about 40-60 minutes. We will enjoy the area that is considered to be a locals special. Here the locals come in the summer to enjoy the nature of there friends and family. After the walk, we will be able to spend a good time in the Ice cave and get the photos that we need. On this tour, we are not in a hurry and try to spend as much time as the group needs. When everyone has had enough time in the Ice cave we will walk the same way back.  We might need to walk on the glacier to get to the Ice Cave. If we need to walk on the glacier we will provide all the equipment for that. If you like photographing we recommend this tour for you. All the ice caves are naturally made so it is the nature that decides how they are shaped and where they are located. Safety is our priority, and/so we will always choose the best Ice cave for every trip. The drive and the walk to the ice cave can, therefore, be different between days. If nature decides we are not able to go to the ice cave we have other extraordinary alternatives for you.

Wonderful experience - the best tour for photographers
Feb 2020
We booked this tour about a month before it took place but apparently we were the only ones who booked with Glacier Trips so they joined us with another couple who from another company. It was still just four people altogether + the guide, so the group was actually half of the maximum promised size of eight people.
The guide was amazing with a lot of knowledge and unlimited patience. In fact, the tour was supposed to be 5-6 hours but ended up being 8 because we just took our time photographing all the cool places we visited.

If you are a photographer you definitely want to take this tour and not the short 2-3 hour tours offers by most companies. The short tours are done in large groups of 20-30 people, only go to the ice cave, and only stay there for a short while. Even if you're only interested in the cave it's going to be impossible to have it only for yourself if you go with such a large group. On the other hand, this tour is up to a maximum if 8 people (as noted, we were just 4), it goes to multiple locations on the glacier, most of them just as beautiful, if not more, as the ice cave itself and there is enough time to actually setup a tripod to take decent pictures and even wait for a break between the large groups visiting the main cave.

As a well traveled person who's "been there and done that" I can also say that this was one of the more unique experiences I had over the last few years and not something you get to do anywhere else.

Our Highlight of our Iceland Trip
Feb 2020
I don't write reviews, but this tour was absolutely stunning so let me share my thoughts.
Our guide Tamara was very nice and entertaining. We fortunately only had a group of 4 persons. They told us to be 4-8 people and i guess we just got lucky.
After seeing the first cave with a lot of people and groups we continued going over glacier and exploring other caves where almost no one was there. Tamara gave us a plenty of resting points and a lot of time to take pictures. In fact i was there with my 70th year old mom and Tamara was always caring that she is fine. I can not support bringing your 70th year old parent with you, but my mom is quit fit so she managed every tasks. We were always secured and monitored.
This tour will always be our highlight of our tour.
Thank you so much guys.

Great trip with a glacier walk, small group
Feb 2020
Very good service, knowledgeable guide, beautiful caves and a glacier walk. Make sure you use the restroom facilities before you set off and have something to snack on as it is a long trip (6 hours). Highly recommended!

Family loved it - they were surprised how much fun it was
Jan 2020
We searched for, read reviews and spent too much time trying to figure out which outfitter to go with. In the end, we choose a smaller company hoping for great service and more one on one time.
The trip was a lot of money. I think all of them are expensive. You just need to accept that as a part of Iceland.
I would us them again. Our guide was great. Took time to talk to me family and listen to our needs. There were other tours that were in and out of the cave in 15 minutes. I think we were happily there for an hour. What I had hoped to find in an outfitter I did. Great value and experience for the family.
And now, the best part. This was the last day of a two week European trip and my family found it to be the highlight. Walking on the glacier was stunning. So much fun and it was just awesome! It is an experience worth the money and time.

Outstanding experience.
We just completed our second incredible ice cave tour experience with Glacier Trips. Steinar Kristjánsson was truly a wonderful guide and gave us excellent information about the glacier's history as well as recent conditions and activity. Steinar's personality is warm, friendly and he is very helpful. The company provided all necessary equipment to hike the glacier and Steinar offered clear instruction abd careful guidance. We were in a group of photographers and we had plenty of time to shoot. A truly memorable day and I would be very happy to book with Glacier Trips again. Highly recommended.

BEST experience ever
Nov 2019 • Friends
The best experience of the whole trip to Iceland. We decided to choose Glacier trips because it is a local company, with local guides and it was a success. Our guide, Steiner was amazing. Super attentive, friendly and always aware that the excursion was perfect. We were a group of 5 people and we had a super personalized service. The tour of the glacier and the caves was an unforgettable experience and I definitely recommend choosing this company. They are super professionals, they give you all the material you need. They are very friendly and close. I recommend it 100%.

Nice trip
Nov 2019
Really nice trip - if it's your first time when walking in spikes and with icepick you'll be amazed.

What was really exceptional as it comes to other companies with similar offer was that our group was only 3 people + guide. We had plenty of time to talk to the guide and take photos. There was no rush, we could enjoy the views as much as we wanted.

What's worth mentioning is that even with such a small group our guide ensured us some private time within the cave itself - there was a couple of other groups (around 8 ppl each if I remember correctly) and they just needed to wait for us to leave the cave (:.

Thanks guys, keep up with the good job!
