Icelandic Mountain Guides (tour company) Solheimajokull Reviews
Icelandic Mountain Guides (tour company) Oct 09, 2010
as me and maike, my co-organizer for the roadtrip and camping around iceland finalized the plans for autumn, we decided to incorporate a real hiking adventure for our trip. we decided to book a group tour of professionaly hiking a glacier - sólheimajökull glacier with icelandic mountain guides tour company.
they have an almost unlimited services/programms and tours if you wanted to experience iceland in a professional way. the tours are really expensive - as it is iceland but we found the cheapest - around 35 euros for a 2 1/2 hours of glacier introduction and the hike itself.
tours ranged from 35 euros (sólheimajökull glacier hike) to 3.500 euros (coast to coast 31 days adventure expedition of iceland)
some of the tours include:
- day tours (glaciers, horseback riding, mountain climbing, jeep tours)
- overland trekking / hiking tours
- super jeep tours
- bike tours
- expeditions around iceland
it was a bad start with the company, as the agent who were supposedly booking our tour forgot about us, but in the end - the tour company made their way to compensate us - they picked us up at our hostel (which was not included in the price).
i rate this tour company in iceland 5 stars overall. not only the glacier guides - halldór and jóhann were very informative about iceland and it's landscapes, about glaciers, volcanoes and ice - but they see to it that we were fully strapped with gears and not strayed far from the group. our saftey was their ultimate concern.
so if ever you come to iceland for a short time and do some tours around - i recommend Icelandic Mountain Guides as the tour company to book your adventures!
