    We did the activity with our grandparents over 80 years old. The start of the walk was a bit too fast for them. However, the guide was very professional and caring. He slowed down, waited and offered his help. Despite the difficult conditions, he maintained the excursion and led everyone safely with a masterful hand. The 60 years of marriage of my grandparents will remain in our memories and certainly in a good way thanks to him!

    An alternative and shorter day to the Jokulsarlon Cave tour. From the pick up in the super jeep, to the informative guide (Aaron). Then the actual walk in and the free time to explore and take many pictures. The walk in is easy enough but you do climb up an inlcine and there are tricky little bridges in the cave itself. If you can do this and are short on time - I would highly recommend it.

    The ice cave is totally fascinating, the way there is mostly gravel. Unfortunately we didn't have a jeep but a larger bus that seemed rather unsuitable for this slope. Apart from that, the tour is highly recommended. The guide was very nice, explained everything in an interesting way and gave further tips.
