What people are saying about Eastern Region, Iceland

Algo único que hacer en Islandia, la experiencia es muy chula y recomiendo 100% hacer el tour largo porque pese a ser el largo ya se hace corto con toda la parafernalia y caminar hasta el glaciar así que los de 3 horas se deben hacer muy cortos.

A truly incredible experience! Our guide was friendly, very knowledgeable about the geology and history of the glacier and the area. They provided all the equipment and gave everyone time to get comfortable with it. I highly recommend this tour!

Fantastic guides! We were able to go higher on the glacier than I anticipated. All the while the guides make sure you are completely safe. Informative rest stops are taken on the way. Highly recommend.

amazing tour guides, spent a ton of time on the glacier. We were the only group on the glacier for a long period of time. saw glacier geysers, arches, crevasses, and drank glacier water.

Fantastic insights into the glacier on a great tour! 5 stars despite bad weather. Jan was a friendly, great guide!
