We did the Skaftafell Ice Cave and Glacier Hike and I would recommend this to anyone visiting Iceland! We lucked out on the sunny weather that day but our tour guide Nate was fun and so informative, I learned so much about glaciers! They provide ice picks, spikes and helmet so you just need to prepare for dressing accordingly.

This was an incredible experience! Joao was our guide and he is clearly very knowledgeable. He gave clear instructions at all points and carefully assessed the participants and so we felt safe and cared for at all times. We loved the information shared about the glacier and ice caves, and even more we loved Joao’s message about caring for the environment. He was even willing to share insight into life in Iceland on the walk back and we loved this. Highly recommend this experience, Joao the guide, and the company.

The guide knew all the details very well, he handled himself perfectly. The material was good. On the other hand, the hours of the activity are not real, since you must count the time of delivery of material and arrival at the place where the activity takes place. Important point, if you don't know English fluently, you learn little or nothing.
