Absolutely fantastic trip out. A few minor transport issues at the start of the day that the driver managed to sort out. Thankfully 7 very rude people chose to leave the tour at this point and we didnt have to put up with them for the rest of the trip. Felt really bad for the driver. Transfers were good, the super jeep was great fun and the snow mobiling was absolutely awesome! Really good amount of time driving them. Great warm weather clothing was provided and hot drinks and biscuits afterwards. The ice cave was different to what I was expecting but still beautiful. Absolutely would recommend this tour, well worth the money and the views were outstanding!
A great afternoon. Our only remark would be to have received some additional information upfront. You meet the guide at Gullfoss, where you get on specialised van to take you to the snowmobile “base” camp. There, you get a briefing, get kitted out and leave personal items in lockers. Note that the gear goes over most of your clothing but you get helmets and goggles, so sunglasses and hats should be in the lockers. On your return, you return the gear and get a hot drink (tea,coffee,chocolate ) and biscuits before heading back in the van to Gullfoss.
Seeing an ice cave was a magnificent experience and the natural beauty was amazing. I've given it 4 stars and not 5 stars purely because I thought it would be a bit bigger and deeper as a cave. Well worth the visit and the journey in the jeep takes around 40 minutes.
Helli, our driver and guide was very kind, friendly and an excellent guide with plenty of knowledge. We certainly recommend this trip from the age of 10 years old. It's not a trip for old people with difficulties to walk on rocks in the dark.
Really fun and interesting. The caves were beautiful. The ice formations inside were stunning. It wasnt claustrophobic or scary at all, my mother was a bit worried about that but she was fine. The guide 'H' was really funny and witty.
