The guide (Roberto) was very good, really paying attention to each and every one of us. He was patient, knowledgeable, and funny. The activity itself was awesome, and the equipment provided was good quality. We felt safe the entire time. We could take lots of pictures, and really enjoyed our trip, even though we could have stayed even longer.

The glacier hike was a uniquely beautiful experience. We were incredibly lucky with our weather, there was hardly a cloud in the sky and no wind to be felt. You could watch the sunrise wonderfully during the hike. Even if the experience is not exactly cheap, I still recommend doing it once. Our guide (I think his name was Mattheus) was very friendly and explained a lot. Simply great!!!

I would have given it 5 stars but unfortunately the weather was bad so we couldn’t go into the ice cave and they had to evacuate everyone from the glacier earlier. Our guide Ingi was awesome and we really enjoyed walking on a glacier. Just wish the weather was better.
