Excellent guide Guther. Ice caves are amazing. But the price of these tours are way overpriced - like all in Iceland. If you find another tour which is cheaper - go for it. They are all very similar. But do see the ice caves. They are worth it and who knows these all will melt over time due to arctic warming

Our guide, Gunnar, was great. We drove out in basically a civilized monster truck over a very rough "road" to a place we could park then hiked in about 2km. It was a nice hike getting in and I'm in awful shape after all the Covid WFH so don't be too worried. The cave itself was beautiful and I loved taking photos of the interesting textures and objects in the ice. On the way back out we drank some water from a glacier stream that was just beautiful. It could have easily been bottled. All around wonderful trip and I heartily recommend it!

The caves are very beautiful, with open areas and completely blue areas. It is impressive to see all the ice around you. The caves change every year so it depends on the time you go. It is not possible to go to see them without a guide. Our guide Diego very friendly and outgoing. He explains about the formation of the caves and from the point of view of his experience, he was also very attentive and asked if we wanted him to take a picture of us with our mobile. So I can have photos with my partner and see the caves. Negative point: in the caves there are many other guided groups and it gets quite crowded.
