We are planning on going back and doing a 4-day hike with them. We also did a snorkel/golden circle tour and hot springs tour and liked all of their excursions. Well run company... More

Fantastic company offering a wide range of exciting days out/trips. We went by Super Jeep to see the northern lights - collected from the hotel taken to our super jeep and off to explore and chase down the northern lights - we were not disappointed, the driver was knowledgeable in his craft, and we were soon in awe of this...

What a fantastic tour! Thank you to the guides biggie and .. It began with H!! Made me feel very comfortable and safe on the glacier, great personalities so made the trip great fun. Even though it was raining this is still worth it, best tour I have done in Iceland! I would definitely use arctic adventures again.

Once in a life time experience ! They provided all th required equipment including crampons, helmets and ice axes and provided hiking shoes/water proof jacket and trousers for rental. Our guides explained clearly on how to use the equipments correctly and explain the geography behind the glacier and always looking after us while walking on the glacier. A must for... More

I took the Glacier Hike from Reykjavik tour on the 25th of Nov and had a pretty good experience! Our driver was Adolf and he was very punctual and informative. Our guide for the Glacier hike was even better! I guess his name was Sverni? but anyways he was really funny and made the trip a very memorable one. Overall... More

Got to see the northern lights in style and really enjoyed the hot chocolate. The only thing I would say is that the super jeep is advertised as being able to go where the minibuses can't, but we just met up with minibuses at the tour locations, so the minibus tour would have been just as good

We took 5 different activities with the Arctic Adventures and all of them were personalized, well organized and provided us with magic, enchantment, a lot of mythology (by Jonas :) and the knowlege of a so different world :) The guides were great, professional, open and friendly.

Had a great trip with professional guides on the blue ice of Sólheimajökull glacier. The guides took care of us with our safety always as nr 1. We got to hear very interesting stories about the glaciers and also got to test ice climbing - something I had never done before. I can highly recommend this tour with these guys... More
