A highlight of our trip
Mar 2020
This was one of our favourite experiences on our trip.
We'd purposefully booked with Asgard for the smaller group size (and we were fortunate that it was only us two in the end) and for the longer time on the ice. It was most definitely the right decision! The waterfall afterwards is a nice little addition too.

Our guide, Kiddi, was fantastic. I can't praise him enough. Calm, unflappable and knowledgeable. I always felt safe with him, and he dealt with my nervousness at abseiling with such patience. Encouraging, but without ever forcing me to do something I wasn't comfortable with. Good briefing before trying ice climbing and helpful tips to improve. He had a good knowledge of the glacier too, and the smaller group meant we could get off the beaten track and were often walking in untouched snow. Such breathtaking views!

Thank you soooo much Nicola, for your kind words! Believe me, they´re especially valuable now, if you know what I mean. I really love the fact that you picked Asgard as your adventure provider, due to the smaller group size. We whole heartedly believe that´s the way to experience new places and activities. With few people and a fantastic guide. Happy to hear you met Kiddi, he´s a star. We are extremely lucky to have him on our team. It´s an art, to go off the beaten track without leaving a trace. Again, thank you for taking the time to share your Asgard experience. Be safe, and if you ever find yourselves in Iceland again, you know where to find us:-) Kind regards: Ásdís, Asgard

Amazing experience - True adventure
Feb 2020 • Solo
This was one of the experiences at the top of my list. The view of and on the glacier was breathtaking! Our tour guide ‘Bright’ was super lovely and informative and very passionate for his role. A lot of hiking until we got to climb up and down an ice wall, which was an unforgettable experience. One of the best tours during my time in Iceland.

The Best Part of our Icelandic Trip.
Nov 2019
My wife and I lucked out as we were the only people touring that day and wound up with essentially a private tour. Our guide Sigurpáll A., was absolutely fantastic! He was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and made us feel safe. The glacier was beautiful and Sigurpáll found a great moulin for us to climb up. He thought us sa the basics on how to climb, was very encouraging and gave us a most memorable experience.

Gorgeous (and challenging!) glacier excursion
Nov 2019
Gaddi guided three of us - my wife and I, plus another visitor - for a stunning ice climb and glacier hike on Sólheimajökull. Asgard Beyond was incredibly professional and responsive beginning with the booking process. Our guide, Gaddi, was super experienced on the glacier, instructive on climbing technique for us noobies, and ensured that during our 5+ hours together we had a laid-back and personalized experience. We felt we got our money's worth: high-quality customer service and equipment, a highly knowledgeable guide, and a gorgeous (and challenging!) glacier excursion.

Hi Shane! Thank you very much for your review. Gaddi has been in the industry for a long time and his experience really shine through in his guiding, with effortless operations and a relaxed experience. We are indeed fortunate to have him and all the guides that work for us. Thank you again very much for travelling with Asgard. Sincerely Ragnar

My highlight in Iceland!
Awesome small-group (we were 3 + guide), personalized experience that you probably won't get with any of those other 20-people ice climbing tours you see around! After a short intro we were able to test our skills on a few climbs of different difficulty so everybody was properly challenged and also able to work on technique (and actually learn some ice climbing basics).
Ragnar (our guide) was great, very knowledgeable and always ready to provide some in-depth info on ice climbing and Iceland in general. No matter if you just want to try ice climbing once or are actually looking for a short but more in-depth introduction to it, this is the way to go!

What an epic feedback! Thanks so much for catching the essence of Asgard!!!! This is exactly who we try to be and what we want to stand for. Small groups, personal service and outstanding guides is what we represent. So happy to hear you enjoyed your your climbing day out on Sólheimajökull with Ragnar. He is one of Asgard owners and a fantastic professional. You could hardly have been in better hands. I really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us and others. Really, it can be hard to try to stand out in the crowd, but a comment like yours surely helps with motivation and the desire to become better at what we do moment by moment... Kind regards: Ásdís, Asgard

Great Day Exploring a Glacier
Oct 2019
On our honeymoon we wanted to be active and do something a little different from the "normal" experience. Jon was a great guide for our day on the glacier. We had never been ice climbing before but quickly picked up the basics. Jon was a great teacher of climbing and traversing the glacier, as well as the nature and history of glaciers in Iceland.

How amazing to get the chance to be a part of your honeymoon in Iceland:-) We highly appreciate you newlyweds trusting us to to deliver an ice climbing experience to remember. Jón is one of our very best, so not so surprised you had a good time with him. He also has some years of experience behind him, so you were in super good hands. I think I remember the weather was not co-operative that day, so hat off for you guys. You did amazing. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your Asgard experience with future travellers. It means the world to us. Really hope you enjoyed the rest of your honeymoon in Iceland, and bring home some nice memories for the future. If you ever find yourselves in Iceland again (for anniversaries for example:-), you know where to find us. Lots of love: Ásdís, Asgard

Single best tour ever taken. Ever!
May 2019 • Friends
I'm glowing after this trip! Our guide Kiddi collected us in Reykjavík then our day began. We were kitted out with really good boots and weather gear and crampons (first time I ever wore them but he taught me so well i felt so comfortable)
When we arrived at the glacier I almost cried because it was so breathtaking! There was some bits that were a bit hairy because I am scared of heights but our guide was always so kind and calm and I felt totally safe the entire time. He told us stories and facts and was so knowledgeable.
We had harnesses and everything and so did some ice climbing, which was amazing. Kiddi chose a place I could challenge myself but still feel safe but there was much taller ones if you were already at a higher level and felt comfortable doing it. All in all we had a mind blowing day and this trip would be worth coming to Iceland for by itself. There was only 3 of us with the one guide so we were so well attended on, we saw another company with heaps of people, I real feel this trip was worth every krona. Thankyou so so much! Xx

Wow! Thank you so much for your amazing feedback and all the kind words. Since you were lucky enough to go out and explore with Kiddi, I´m not surprised you had a fantastic day out. How lucky are we to have him on our team of Asgardians??? Everything you mention makes us very proud, but the fact that you say this trip would be worth coming to Iceland for, really blows our mind. Again, thank you so much for taking the time to share your Asgard experience with others. We really appreciate it. If you ever find yourself in Iceland again (which we hope) or if you have friends coming over, you know where to find us...Safe travels. Kind regards: Ásdís, Asgard

Ice Climbing and Glacier Hike
Feb 2019 • Friends
This was an amazing experience. It was challenging, but extreme fun. Robbie, our guide, provided excellent instruction and encouragement. We tried a few different climbs of varying difficulty, and Robbie provided lots of interesting information about the glacier and Iceland in general. When I return to Iceland glacier hiking and ice climbing will be on my to-do list again.

Hi John! Thanks so much for your kind, positive feedback. You were pretty lucky to get to go out and explore with Robbi. He´s kind of a hybrid between a human and an "ice-man", as dwelling and climbing on the glaciers seems to be more natural for him than any indoor environment. Also, he surely is one of Iceland´s best ice climbers. So, not surprised that you enjoyed your ice climbing day out with him, but very happy to hear. We highly appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with future travellers. And please, if you ever find yourself in Iceland again, do not hesitate to stay in touch. If there is anything we love more than our guests, it´s our returning guests. Now you know where to find us. Kind regards: Ásdís, Asgard
