  1. It was the most amazing tour ever. Each coin and more worth it! The incredible journey, amazing truck and super friendly staff especially the guide with his chauffeur which make our ride an adventure unique and amazing.
    Super recommended

  2. Great day out!

    It was a wonderful experience!

  3. Amazing Tour!

    It was so Fantastic.

  4. Two thumbs up!

    Aside of being one of the best mesmerizing places i’ve ever seen made by the hand of the man alongside mother nature, the treatment from the guides (the one in the bus and the other from the tunnel named Thelma) was warming, sincere, spontaneously animated and instructive about the past, present and future, from Iceland and the icelanders. Greetings from Dominican Republic.!

  5. Hands down, the best tour we took

    Everything was really great. The specialized vehicle we needed to ride in to the glacier was monstrous, loved it!
    This is a once in a lifetime experience and it didnt hurt that the guides were really great and knowledgeable about the glaciers and the area.
    We took loads of pictures inside the giant car and in the tunnel. Higly recommend this tour.

  6. Well worth the trip!

    Me and my husband went to Into the Glacier tour while on our wonderful stay in Iceland. Our friends back in Belgium recommended this tour to us after their Icelandic adventure back in 2015. We are very thankful to them and to everyone in Iceland advice team to help us book this amazing adventure.
    I hope i will be able to do this again someday! LOVE!

  7. Wow!

    We absolutely loved our tour Into the glacier, our guide was very patient, helpful and funny!
    Everyone in our group had a blast and had the biggest smiles on our face after learning so much about the glaciers.

  8. Outstanding tour

    Great tour! Very well organized and the guides were knowledgeable and informative. The Ice Cave is truly once in a lifetime experience and a must do in Iceland. The interior of the glacier is beautiful and this was one of the highlights of my trip.

  9. Better than excellent!!

    This was truly amazing! Our guide Lillia was so enthusiastic and obviously loves what she does. Her excitement & her knowledge made this trip better than excellent! You start off being driven up onto the glacier in a modified missile launcher, it’s a bumpy ride but exciting. Once on the glacier you go into a tunnel, then walk deeper & deeper into the heart of the glacier. It is incredibly beautiful, you can see the bottom of a crevasse, a beautiful cavern hanging with sparkling icicles of all sizes & a chapel carved out of the ice. It is also very interesting and educational. It is a once in a lifetime experience as the glaciers in Iceland are melting and this experience may only be available for another 10 years due to climate change.

  10. The tour was perfect

    Great tour! Nuff said.

  11. AMAZING

    AMAZING tour from start to finish. Do yourself a HUGE favor and go on this tour. Money really well spent.

  12. WOW! When can you ever do this again?!?!

    This truly is a once in a lifetime experience. The drive up to the glacier was equally as fun as exploring the ice cave itself 🙂

    I can absolutely recommend taking this fantastic tour, make sure to bring your camera with you. I forgot my iphone in my car but fortunately could get the photos sent from a fellow traveler, he was so nice 🙂 !!
