We did the Skaftafell Ice Cave and Glacier Hike and I would recommend this to anyone visiting Iceland! We lucked out on the sunny weather that day but our tour guide Nate was fun and so informative, I learned so much about glaciers! They provide ice picks, spikes and helmet so you just need to prepare for dressing accordingly.

Very interesting. Path accessible to all. Sitti, our guide, was very clear in the explanation regarding the use of the equipment and behavior on the glacier. The visit also includes explanations about the glacier and how it is changing due to the climate crisis. Highly recommended.

We had a great time exploring the Glacier. Our guide, Tina, was fantastic! Lots of fun and she was informative.

Great tour! Especially Martin (our guide) was amazing:) Don't miss this, especially while you still can.

Both guides were absolutely brilliant (Kevin & Pascal)! Really enjoyed the whole experience.
