It’s a unique experience and one to do in Iceland during the winter. However I felt the tour guide did lack information about the tour. It was merely a photograph opportunity more than a tour. Don’t expect to come out with a bundle of information. More a photo opportunity of an ice cave that was incredible. Never seen anything quite like it before.

The blue ice cave is magnificient as other reviews have shared. We are fortunate to have Fannar as our tourguide. He shared a lot of useful information and great jokes about the trip and his super jeep. Fannar also helped us take great photos in the cave. Fannar is very understanding and supportive for our young children who could not catch up to speed with the group. The hike to the ice cave is beautiful but quite tough in snowy condition. Even for adults, we have some difficulties on slippery paths sometimes. Fannar patiently wait and help my younger son through tough parts of the trail. He even walked with us on the way back to make sure we are safe as it was getting dark.

Superb visit. We loved this visit. A must ! 3 hours of visit: 30 min by car (1 hour return), 30 minutes walk (1 hour return), 1 hour visit to the caves. Great guide (don't really remember his name "remi", something like that) he took the time to explain this excursion to us! I highly recommend
