We had a phenomenal time with our tour guide Christine from Nice Travel. She was funny, entertaining, and so so knowledgeable. Our group was originally supposed to be 17 people but 3 were no show, so in total there were 14 of us. We were really lucky to have sunshine and good weather for the majority of the tour. I love that Christina would make secret bonus stops along the way to show us views/places most tour companies don't stop at. Everyone had so much fun!!! I would HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this tour!!! Now all my friends are jealous, after seeing the pictures I took on the tour, posted on Instagram.

Our driver cum guide, Atte, was very good. He took us a to a few spots that were not on the itinerary. The waterfalls were really good but because of the cold, we didnt go around it, like the others. For the ice cave, you have to hike arnd 30mins to get there. Unfortunately we didnt get to stay long no go deeper. But it was still nice. Our ice cave guide , Attee was very helpful esp for my husband who had difficulty at some areas.

Loved the experience! Our guide was Gulli and the best person we could have done this 2-day trip with! Very informative and friendly. Needless to say, the activities were amazing. There's a lot to cover in 2 days. The highlights were the ice caves, the drive to the hiking start point and the hike to the caves, the overnight countryside stay (beautiful and comfortable), and if you are lucky & if you manage to save some time, the additional spots that your guide might drive you to. Totally worth 2 days of your trip.
