We knew there would be no “diamonds” at the Diamond beach because the icebergs were trapped behind the lagoon, and we still decided to go on with our trip because of this experience. However, because of the weather, our guide took us to a different cave. I was skeptical at first, but shouldn’t have been! We had an exciting (driving on a glacier can be terrifying), fun and beautiful tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and experienced, and very helpful when I had trouble walking over some portions of the path.

The tour guide was awesome!! She gave such great info and made the keep ride to the glacier very informative and fun! I def def recommend layering up for this activity. We went in early March and it was still very windy. A balaclava is a must! The tour itself was BEAUTIFUL. A must have experience in Iceland above everything else! And you get GORGEOUS pics!

Bjorn was an amazing guide. She was entertaining, ensured everyone felt safe and was very informative. The ice cave itself was smaller than the photos, however we got to explore a lot more than just that (and got some awesome photos!). Definitely recommend!
