The tour was excellent. We enjoyed every aspect. The pick up from the bus stop was on time and easy. Our guide was ‘Ciggy’ and we was very professional and funny and kept us entertained on the long drive to Katla. Upon arrival to Katla we transferred to the jeep and our guide was ‘Hawk’ (Steve). The drive in the keep was great fun and when we arrived to the glacier Hawk gave us a briefing and we donned the crampons. My mum is 70 and was unsure on the ice at one point. Hawk was incredibly kind and helpful to escort my mum into the ice cave and also back down off the glacier. He provided an outstanding service and made the holiday very memorable. I can thoroughly recommend the tour.

Departure at the foot of the mountain with a bus adapted for the mountain. Explanations of the surroundings and stories by the guide along the way, very pleasant to listen to. Visit of the cellar with a multitude of explanations and return. It was worth it.

Amazing, we did a few tours in Iceland and we really loved this one. The glacier is just incredible. Lovely guides and super keep is fun :) thank you! Highly recommend

The tour was very nice and very good company but the ice cave was not too much but very nice hike and caves .
