It was an amazing experience to go for a walk on a glacier. The tour was pretty much divided into three parts:
first a fun ride with a "superjeep" to the glaciertongue, then walking and around for an hour or so (we visited several smaller...More
This is a must do trip. We had the nicest, knowledgeable, entertaining, and helpful guide, Siggy. Get in the jeep, put the crampon ice spikes on your shoes, go to the glacier and walk around. Then enter the ice caves. The scenery from the glacier...More
My husband and I were not planning to do any type of glacier walk because, frankly, it didn't sound all that much different from regular (free) hiking. It was also very expensive in comparison to our other planned activities (i.e., more free hiking). However, we...More
I want to thank Stienier for the tour! Him and his cousin who train to be a guide too.
The tour is absoulltyly fantastic. We were only 4 people total , the guide gave plenty of explanation about the glacier and about the tools for...More
We have been to Iceland several times. It is getting hard to get away from the crowds. But rest assured you will be alone on a glacier if you take this trip!
The group was six, plus the guide. We were the only tour all...More
I did the 4-5 hour glacier walk with 4 other guys and 1 guide, and it was sensational. Our guide Steppi (no doubt I’ve spelt that completely wrong!) was really knowledgeable and informative, but also left us in silence sometimes. I really appreciated those silences...More
It was a blast going out on the glacier. We were a little slow going up, but our guide was very accommodating and helpful for those who needed it and still kept the trip fun for the more fit members. We got unlucky with a...More
Steinar really made the trip great. We went on the glacier walk on the Fláajökull glacier outlet. He made sure everyone had a fantastic experience and he was really informative. You could tell he loves to share his knowledge about the glacier and the whole...More
My wife and I went on a tour of the "blue" looking glaciers half way between Reykjavik and Hofn. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. I learned a lot about the climate of Iceland because of this guided tour. We also got to wear...More

It is not about age and only partially about fitness. It's about comfort level walking on very rocky surfaces. I could handle the duration, 6 hours, and the intensity. I had a hard time with the hike to the glacier. The glacier was easy once I wrapped my head around the fact that I wouldn't slip wearing the cleats provided for us. I am not sure footed and do not have mountain goat in my genes. You do need to be somewhat fit. I workout in the gym and walk ALOT. I don't have enough experience mountain hiking and that would have been better. I slowed everyone down, but they were nice about it.
