Hi Eunhae1987, Thank you for kind words regarding your glacier walk tour with Icelandic Mountain Guides. All of our guides take care and attention to our customers needs when on the ice, so we are glad you had fun. Crampons can be a bit tricky to get used to to begin with, but once you figure out the style of walking, you can start to trust yourself and fully enjoy the views from the glacier. We hope the time you had in Iceland was fantastic and maybe we will get to see you in the Icelandic Summer in the future! Best Regards Scott Icelandic Mountain Guides

Thanks for the kind words Callansaunders We are very pleased to hear that you had an unforgettable experience with Ben on your climbing tour. Iceland's landscapes can feel like you are on another planet! The tour from Reykjavik, taking you to the waterfalls and the glacier is something we do say is a must do. We agree this is a 100% must do when in Iceland. We hope your adventures in Iceland continued and hope to see you again in the not so distant future. Best Regards Scott
