It's already been three months. It was a very interesting experience. I felt like I was on Mars. There was also a three-hour one, but it was excellent to choose five hours. Three hours is too short. You get off the bus, you have to walk for a long time, and you have to go up for a long time to see a good place. The average person can experience five hours of walking and resting. Don't be afraid. It seems to be necessary to experience glacial activity in Iceland. Thanks to the kind guide, it was a lively tour. It also explains how glaciers were created at every spot. (Thank you, Natalia) It's already become a place to miss. I wish the ice would stop melting, too. ^^
This hike was amazing. Driving was the best option; we were able to make stops on the way to see various waterfalls and take some good pictures. We went in March and the road conditions were alright to drive in from Reykjavik, but we left a little earlier to get there good just in case weather or roads were bad. The drive back was blizardy. But- worth the trip! The glaciers were amazing and hiking around is great. You do not need to be a professional, anyone could go. Maria, our guide was amazing; she was so passionate about her work and we really enjoyed being with her. She explained much!
Due to the bad weather conditions our tour was cut in half and had to return after seeing the waterfall. It's a shame that we do not get compensated back our money as we did pay for a full day and only received half the tour considering the amount of money we paid for. The tour guild was very helpful and funny which help liven the mood up. The waterfall was beautiful.
Great tour, Alex was a very friendly and natural guide, but the star of the show was Tomas (the driver). Navigating roads that were barely there due to the snow is no easy feat, doing so in a 60 seater was impressive! Iceland is beautiful, all the locations we stopped at were worth exploring.
Wonderful trip. Driver:Guide was awesome - my alter ego. Much more interesting to listen to than the iPad guide ( though it was a nice trip). Good tight pace - never bored. Wonderful sites and weather was perfect. My young children enjoyed the trip too.
