Skaftafell Blue Ice Cave Adventure & Glacier Hike

We went in February and had the best weather we could have wished for. The tour was well organised and the preparation went very smoothly. Our guide was very friendly and always happy to answer any questions we had. The hike was amazing. Even though some of our group were worried that it might be too difficult, it worked quite well (all of us were used to walking the dog/ going on daily walks). The view from the glacier was absolutely stunning and we could stop to take pictures. Unfortunately, the „Blue Ice Cave“ was incredibly disappointing. It was maybe 5 metres long/„deep“ and only four people could enter at a time. Each group of four probably spent up to 10 min in the tiny „cave“ (to take pictures as there wasn‘t anything else to do/see there. The pictures on the website are completely misleading. Organisation of the tour: 5 stars Guide: 5 stars Glacier hike: 5 stars Ice „Cave“: 1 star
