"We did the Ice climbing "extreme" tour. I was hesitant at first because it was a tad expensive for us (like everything else in iceland). We had been climbing around the glaciers on our own in hiking boots, and weren't sure whether we'd gain anything by taking a more "touristy" approach to exploring them. I was surprised by how excellent the tour went. Its confined to 2-5 people, so it didn't feel touristy at all. And our guide Jacob was excellent. He was knowledgable in the glacier itself... read full review

“Great Company to book a trip with.  We did an extreme option on the Falljokull and it was really worth it. I don't think that difficulty level was extreme so I would recommend it to those who want to experience something different.
Our guide Fannar gave us some basic training on hiking with crampons and ice axe. And it was quite simple to be honest. He also showed us nice spots on the glacier to take pictures.
