    WOW!! What an experience!! Everything was great! Safety was definitely a priority! Our guide Sven, I cannot say enough about how enlightening and informative he was, with a gregarious personality! He shared his extensive wealth of knowledge regarding the glaciers and geology of the Katla volcano area. The ride was as much a highlight as was the glacier and ice caves. Would we book again… heck yeah and will bring more friends too!!!

    Overall this was a life fulfilling experience. The day I went was the second day all year the area was snowy. It made for a breath-taking site. The journey to the glacier was something. We got stuck in the snow for a bit which made the adventure more unique. But the jeep truck we were in plowed through after a bit of luck. Once we got to the glacier area its about a 15 min walk to the glacier cave. I'd say the cave it's self wasn't much. I imagined walking into a glacier, and the cave being much longer. However overall the experience was great.

    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.
