We did the katla ice cave tour from Vik. It probably was the most wonderful experience we have ever had. A 40 minute drive in a super-jeep in a lunar environment kickstarted the tour. Then we roamed around on foot at the bottom of thr glacier, walking on ice and volcanic ash.

We expected way more.. We did the "Under the Volcano Katla Ice Cave Tour". The ride from Vik with the Superjeep to the caves was okay, a beautiful view that's for sure! Once we came near the cave the jeep was parked and we had to walk over bridges and through some melted

Dear aeseas, Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We apologize for the fact that your experience with us did not live up to your expectations. The safety and wellbeing of our customers is our number one priority. Our guides are well-trained professionals with years and years of experience in their field. The guide carries the responsibility to evaluate if the site or parts of it are completely safe to go to at the time of the visit. On that particular day, it was not safe to go any further. We understand your disappointment, however, Icelandic weather conditions are not something we can control. We hope your overall experience has been somewhat positive and we'll see you on one of our tours sometime in the future.

Our Under the Volcano Katla Ice Cave Tour with Villi was one of the highlights of our trip! From the exciting Super Jeep ride, with a soundtrack to match, to hiking inside the glacier cave, enjoying an Icelandic song sung by the drivers, the breathtaking scenery and sliding

We don't normally do tours of any sort, but we are very happy that we chose this excursion. We got to revisit a few spots we had seen on our last trip to Iceland. But the trip to and through the ice cave was something we would have never attempted on our own. An incredible

My 17 year old son and I did this trip to the ice caves. I’ve been to Iceland three times now and I have to say there was something very special about the ice cave. We even saw a waterfall inside the cave. A truly, very special place.
