What people are saying about Vatnajökull National Park

Great tour all around! Don't drive yourself when you can do this.

The staff at NiceTravel was helpful and organized, and made sure we got off to a great start. The small tour bus was much nicer than a big coach. It was comfortable, let us go places we couldn’t in a coach, and let us to spend more time at the sites. Robert, our tour guide, was great. He made sure we got the most out of each stop, and personalized the tour for each group. The stops were long enough so we never felt rushed, and we had plenty of time to ourselves to explore. Booking a room with private bath, we were the only couple taken to the Hotel Anna, which was a great experience by itself, with a quaint Icelandic feel, and attentive staff. The rest of the group at the guesthouse came back with some great northern lights pictures. The trip from Reykjavik to Jokulsarlon is very long, and if you want to see great waterfalls along the way, stop at a black sand beach, then see glaciers, the Diamond Beach, glacier lagoon, and take a monster truck ride to an ice cave, this is your tour.

The trip is good as my expectation but there are some suggestions.

Beautiful hotel in countryside. The tour to ice cave is perfect and is a must see and also is the most important thing of 2 days tours. By the way, I suggest that the agency should choose another hotel more far and near the diamond beach, in this case we can save more time driving. Because many driving, we come back very late (about 00:30 of 3rd day). Second thing, i expect more for the hunting aurora. The guide just drive to hotel in country side and tell us to discover aurora by ourself in the night from 10:00. It’s not a part of tour, it’s free time activites. Conclusion: I recommend that you can chooose this tour also the golden circle tour + blue lagoon of this company but have to note some information given above. Thanks.

An incredible experience that I'll never forget. Amazing guide too!

Our guide, Carolina, was so wonderful. She knew all about glaciers and was deeply connected to them which made our experience more than just 'sight seeing'. Hiking onto the glacier is an experience I'll never forget, Carolina was professional and always put our safety first. The weather turned rainy at the end of the hike but Carolina arranged for us to be picked up so as not to get too wet. All the equipment was provided and we had snacks on our return. Thank you so much for an unforgettable experience Troll and for sharing your love of glaciers Carolina. I highly recommend doing this hike

There are no words to describe the feeling!

We were super lucky with a really small Group (4 pax). Vincenzo was the best guide ever. Super kind and always concerned about the safest paths to go. We had the best on-ice-hiking experience. I would recomend it always. Much better than the 3 hour tour because you really get to spend a good time on ice.

Good experience. Ice cave was a disappointment

The excursion itself is great. The guides were great. walking on the glacier was fun and very interesting. I gave it 4 stars and not 5 b/c I am sure they could have picked a larger ice cave. It was very small and nothing like those ice caves you see in all the pics you find on the web.
