    I really enjoyed the glacier walk. I wish that the group was smaller so we didn’t have to wait for groups to go inside the cave. If we had been a group of 10-15 we would only have to wait for 2 groups instead of the 4-5 we had to stand and wait for. I also wish that a bit more context was given - I knew we would be going to the glacier by jeep but I would have liked to know how long it would take for us to walk out to the glacier itself. I also think having clothing that the tour guides recommend would be good to have - I know it says to bring winter clothes and rain gear but I would have loved specifics so I could have been a little more prepared. Definitely recommend though! Mike and Sven were great guides and I learned a lot. Beautiful unique scenery too.

    The experience itself was AMAZING and I can't recommend it enough. However, we did have some pretty big issues with the communication from Get Your Guide for our activity. The email communications (and in the app) said that our trip was planned for 1pm but after from frantic phone calls and talking to people the day of it got moved to 2pm. We received an email the night before that the meeting spot had changed but when we showed up at 1pm no one was there and we were concerned we missed the whole thing. It wasn't until about 1:15 that someone showed up from the Troll company that we were able to learn that we were actually very early. Apparently the time had changed back in May but we were never notified of that change. We were able to go on the trip but we did have to cancel something since this pushed back our whole itinerary for the day by 1.5 hours.

    The bumpy jeep ride was the most strenuous part of this adventure. Not a very long drive and made it feel like a true adventure. The guide was super knowledgeable and the hiking portion was a breeze. Absolutely stunning views inside and outside the ice cave. On a summer day, I would say the waterproof pants may be optional.
