Good adventure

3-stars only because the tour had to be cut short due to weather conditions. Unfortunately because of strong winds the glacier hike was canceled and even the walk on the beach was short but memorable with the gusty winds. The waterfalls were beautiful and to compensate for our disappointment, the guide even took us to another waterfall not on the itinerary. Troll tours are very professional and they offered to refund part of the money. I am sure in favorable conditions, this tour would be excellent.

The South Shore Coast line is beautiful. The glacier hike was amazing. The Glacier hike was at a nice pace, the guides were informative, and the safety equipment was very adequate. Our guide Gummi was a lively free spirt and very professional. Excellent trip and I highly recommend it.

The tour was amazing with lots of interesting stories and deep diving not only to the scenery, but into the icelandic traditions as well. The way is so long, but with the guide I couldn't even watch on time, that was too interesting to listen, so I didn't noticed the time. The places to see on the way are so beautiful! The only thing you need to do is allow the day and prepare for the weather, and this is certainly will be wonderful adventure

This was our highlight of Iceland! The trip completely exceeded expectations! The glacier walk was the best thing that we did during our visit to Iceland and we booked most excursions possible! Lukas and Nathalia were amazing and made my friends 30th birthday so special by getting the group to sing happy birthday and presenting a candle on ice to her!! Would highly recommend this trip!

This was by far the best tour EVER! Gummi was an amazing tour guide and REALLY knew his history about Iceland and kept all of us who attended engaged! He was very helpful and made us feel right at home! When I come visit Iceland again I definitely will book another tour with Troll Expeditions! The experience was breathtaking and so much fun! Thank you very much! :)

Glacier Hike

We went on the South Coast Glacier Hike with Troll Expeditions. It was the highlight of our trip! Small group tours are always the way to go. It allows you to spend more time at the places you go. Our glacier hike guides were wonderful! They were calm cool and collected and were patient with all the tour clients. Glacier hiking can be dangerous in that a single slip on the ice would very well ruin your whole trip. And our guides made us feel safe with the much needed calm instruction for about 20 first time glacier hikers. Its unfortunate that I cannot spell or even say the names of our guides as they should be pronounced. I highly recommend Troll Expeditions for the glacier hikes and tours!

An amazing trip, our guide siggi was amazing, so knowledgeable and very safety conscious. Felt safe the whole trip. The glacier hike is a must do for anyone travelling to Iceland. Need to be reasonably fit as hike quite strenuous. Thank you so much to troll tours for an experience of a lifetime

South Coast And Glacier Hike Review

This was an AMAZING experience. We were lucky enough to have the tour to ourselves as we went on a week day, in off season. Vala, our tour guide, was great. She was knowledgeable, personalable, and engaging. She definitely enjoys her job and loves the ice. Not only did we get to do all the stops but she made sure we had more than enough time on the glacier and a few extra stops before the last waterfall. I can’t express enough how much fun we had and how great Vala was. I was skeptical to book this trip from home and thought I should wait but am glad I did. You won’t be disappointed!
