    What to Expect
    You do not need to spend a long time in Iceland to discover the great diversity of its natural wonders. In only two days this tour takes you to many of the country's highlights, including the renowned Glacier Lagoon, Jökulsárlón, the majestic glaciers of the South Coast the beautiful waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. On top of the stunning scenery you will experience the exciting activities of glacier walking and a tour into the Ice Caves of Europe’s largest glacier. We spend the night at a brand new 4 star hotel, the only in the region. Its country side location is the perfect spot to experience the Northern Lights!

    My friend and I went on the Northern Lights and Ice Cave Adventure tour with Pascale on 3/26-3/27. Contrary to the name of the tour, we saw neither northern lights nor ice cave; no northern lights because of bad weather and no ice cave because the cave we were supposed to visit

    Hello Janice K and thank you for taking the time to write this review. First, let me apologize on behalf of Icelandic Mountain Guides for not being able to deliver the experience we promised. As you mention in your review, the weather was not working with us on this tour and of course there is very little we can do about that. However, I must agree with you on that having a backup plan for a tour like this is essential to ensure that our customers get the best experience possible. I have already brought this to the attention of our tour operation team and I can assure you that we will do our best to prevent this from happening again. We really appreciate your feedback and if there is anything else, questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at bardi@mountainguides.is Best regards, Barði Theódórsson Director, Sales and Service department

    Doing a 2-day tour with Matteo in the south of Iceland, walking on glaciers, discovering amazing waterfalls, black-sand beaches and the Glacier Lagoon was not only a great experience but a human-rich one thanks to Matteo's nice handling of his small tourist group and his great

    We did this trip at the begining of January. I had driven the roads in the summer, but I wasn't sure how the conditions would be in the winter. As it turned out i was very glad that I was not driving! Our guide, Henrik, was awesome in what was bascially a category one hurricane.

    Hi Alan, Thank you very much for this review. Driving in Iceland can be difficult, but our guides are trained to drive in inclement weather. It is great to hear that Henrik was able to make some rearrangements to ensure you were able to do everything, as is sometimes the case in winter (and even in Summer). Also, you raise an important point about ice caves, as some can be quite busy with many companies visiting them at the same time. Luckily, this season we have access to an ice cave that we share only with one other company. This means that the numbers are kept to a minimum, and it sounds like this is the one that Henrik showed you. It is also nice to hear that you agree that our tours are good value, so thank you for mentioning this. We hope to see you again for another adventure.

    Though still being finalized the exhibition was very interesting, and the tour into the caves was certainly worth the time.

    The trip was amazing, we had the best time ever! Our guide was awesome and very genuine, will definitely recommend Henry to anyone. On our first day of tour, there was a bad snowstorm and we were really worried about our itinerary. But Henry was a superb driver and changed
