The excursion is good and the cave is wonderful. However, although your group is small, there you get together with many groups and you have 3 min per group (approx. 10 peace) to enter to see it and take photos. Everything is going very fast and I couldn't take decent photos because of the little time we had. It seems too expensive for what it is.

An amazing experience! Well worth the money. we had a very good guide, Fanar and a good drivers Reinar. Fanar could tell very passionately. Very interesting, all about the glacier and the caves. The journey to the glacier took about 20 minutes. Once there we went up the glacier with spike and helmet. After a short walk of about 15 minutes we reached the first cave. We visited 3 caves. They were all great. fortunately in the meantime the weather had turned from cloudy to bright blue skies. After about 1.5 hours we were back at the parking lot to start the return journey. I would do it again in a heartbeat!

I highly recommend visiting the ice caves of Vatnajokull Glacier to anyone who stays in Iceland during the winter. The tour wasn't very demanding so you don't need to be in a good shape :) There was no crowd so caves visiting was comfortable and without any rush. Our guide (I can't remeber his name) was professional, funny and very patient and he let us expierience a little bit of jeep off-road.
