They are fully committed to making your glacier journey safe and memorable. It is their passion to provide all customers with an opportunity to experience the astonishing nature in the Vatnajökul National Park area.

Doing this trip was of the highlights of our trip to Iceland. The people are friendly and seeing and driving on the Glacier was just superb. The views of the canyon took my breath away. I cannot wait to get back to Iceland and book more trips with these guys. I would recommend doing this to anyone.
