Our guide was so funny! We laughed for the entire tour. The ice cave is beautiful. Yes, there are a few tours happening at the same time but the guides have certain rules and you will be in one spot with your group, so you will have time to take pictures and enjoy the cave. I highly recommend.

Very good experience to get to know the glacier a bit. About 3 hours in total. We leave the glacier car park, in front of the beach of the diamonds, with a large 4x4 in a journey of about 15 minutes. Then we walked for about 20-25 minutes through the snow until we reached the blue ice cave where we spent about 45 minutes where he explained things about the glacier and we took photos.

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 !!
