Really great tour! Very organized and efficient, there are ski suits, raincoats and crampons for everyone. Kiddi drove the 8-wheeled super vehicle and did a great job! Daudd was our guide, very prepared and nice, he spoke English very well and above all he was very kind because he was available to take souvenir photos in various points of the ice tunnel. The tour is truly a unique and unforgettable experience then if you are lucky enough to find Daudd as a guide it will be truly a show !!!

We met at the Husafell activity center then were taken by bus to base camp. From base camp, they provide rain jackets and boot covers. We then got into a glacier modified véhicule that took us to the tunnel and we had a great guide named Christine (?spelling). The tour lasted an hour in the glacier cave. If you listen closely, you will get to hear some really fascinating information about the glacier and this specific glacier cave. Loved it and would highly recommend.

Amazing trip from start to finish. Loved the snow bus trip up the glacier to the ice cave entrance. Guide excellent with lots of information and banter. Ice cave stunning with so much to take on. Trip back down fun too. Thoroughly recommend this tour to everyone

Awesome experience! There are stops before the glacier. The weather held up. The ice truck was cool. The company provides boot covers, crampons, and raincoats

good organization, all services on time, very helpful, informative and kind staff during the whole tour, exciting visit to the tunnel
