    Our guide was pleasant, fun, and knowledgeable. The tour was too lengthy. Too much time was spent at the same spot to take photos, which caused it too be over 4 hours total time. The ice cave was extremely disappointing. We could barely fit two people at a time. The scenery was very pretty though.

    One of our most educational and eye opening adventure tours was with Tröll Expeditions and our professional glacier guide was Maria Lagou. Her passion and expertise was second to none. The way she explained how much the glacier is disappearing was painful to listen to and made me rethink the way I use and reuse our resources.

    this is an remarkable experience I feel everyone should participate in, I took my Wife on this tour for our honeymoon, as it shows the damage caused by global warming. In turn the beauty of Mother nature during her great reset, from watching the melting water poor off and outta the glacier, to the ice caves created by the water working its way threw the ice. wild how fast everything can change from 1 day to the next,truly a experience I will never forget and will deffenetly be returning with my Wife for our anniversary 1 day!!
