    We really enjoyed our our to the Katla Ice cave. Took a short bus ride to the site with a short walk to the cave. The cave itself is beautiful, just like the pictures. We were able to spend as much time in the cave as we wanted with no rush to leave

    This was a good tour; the guide was awesome, the big rig, information, the drive out to the glacier, the glacier walk were all great but the ice cave was definitely lacking…very small. I understand and appreciate that the glacier is always changing. However, your website is misleading in what the cave experience will be…you may want to update your pictures. The cave we experienced was barely tall enough to walk through hunched over, approximately 3 ft tall and 15 ft long. The price should reflect more of a glacier walk rather than an ice cave tour.

    Great, great, great! Absolutely wonderful experience! Great views on the way to the glacier, spent the perfect amount of time on the glacier and in the ice cave. Everything was so beautiful. Hinrik was our tour guide and he was phenomenal. He was very funny and patient, great with the kids on the tour, very knowledgeable. I learned so much, and Hinrik answered all our questions, so friendly. Request Hinrik if possible! I would give this tour a 10/10, and highly recommend it!
