We did a three hour glacier hike with Dan Saulite and we were so impressed. The glacier was striking and Dan was a fantastic guide. I was with my mom who was a bit older and more than a little nervous; not only did he keep her safe, he also went out of his way to make her feel

Hello iamface :) Thank you for writing this review and your recommendation. We appreciate your comments about the difficulty of our tours. Winter time in Iceland is often very volatile and it is difficult to operate longer tours in extreme conditions. A lot of travelers also like easier hikes especially during winter times. We try to adjust the level of difficulty in our scheduled departure so that they suit most of the people. During the summer season, we have a wider range of tours available that suit adventure seekers like yourself. You are welcome to take part in these tours when you return in the summer :) Best regards, Gary

We thoroughly enjoyed the hike with our guide, Dan. The glacier was hard and very slippery so even with crampons the hike felt adventurous. The cave is barely a cave, but the photos were stunning.
