Incredible experience, that truck is amazing, it is well worth it. Very friendly staff, starting point easy to locate, comfortable transportation. The glacier is brutal, and the cave, although small, has a lot of impact.

We had the most amazing experience on our 4 day tour through Iceland. Our guides Rocky and Siggi were both wonderful, hilarious and very knowledgeable. My friend and I would highly recommend traveling with this company!

It was fantastic! Truly a once in a lifetime experience. I highly recommend this tour!
