    We had a great tour guide Palle - he explained a lot to us during the trip and brought us safely back and forth to the glacier. First we drove into an ice cave and got a helmet and shoe equipment there. It was rather dark and not what you would expect from blue caves - still very great and interesting to look at. Then we went on to a so-called Crevass (the white and blue caves that were imagined here. To go through a naturally created glacier cave or passage that was simply breathtaking. After that we stopped at a lake where films like James Bond was shot. All in all the tour was about 3 hours and was definitely worth the money. It was fun and it was really a great day !!

    The tour to the glacier caves was just fantastic. Our guide Kitty was super funny and very knowledgeable. The ice cave was amazing to look at and you felt safe at all times. Everyone was given enough time to take photos. Simply great and recommendable!
