The glacier hike was an excellent tour! We met at 9am which meant we were first on the glacier- when we came down just after midday, there were dozens of groups kitting up with crampons ready to go on! It was so informative and so...More

I am planning a visit to Iceland in March 2016, and on a budget! Trying to get an idea of how best to spend my money, and would like to know how much these tours are. I would much rather do this than a bus tour, and can only really afford one. I'll be hiring a car, but know lots of places will be inaccessible on my own. Thanks in advance!
