Not as advertised!

I took this tour with my boyfriend on August 12 and I’m very disappointed. I paid almost $400 and is not as advertised. It’s nothing like the pictures that Artic adventures have in their website. The ice cave was a tiny hole that took 8...More

Massively overpriced

Whilst I couldnt fault the service as such, I was very disappointed with this experience on the whole. We opted for the early morning tour from Jokulskarlon, which apparently was so early that not even the cafe/toilet facility nearby could be bothered to open to...More

Poor service on refund process for cancelled tour

Ice cave tour was cancelled due to weather. However, there was no follow up on refund. I emailed them a few times but they did not even reply. The funny thing was, they replied promptly when I enquired about their private tour before I booked...More

A huge disappointment: no 'guided tour'

What we got was certainly not a tour, but a lift to the ice cave and the use of helmets and snow crampons. In the cave proper, the 'guide' simply showed us the end of the cave, and then spent the rest of the time...More

Very disappointing

For the extortionate price this "tour" was very disappointing. You are met at the lagoon and taken to the ice cave in a big 4x4 which is probably the most exciting part of the tour. When you get to the cave you are met by...More
