What To Expect

This amazing day tour out of Reykjavik lets you see two polar extremes of this natural wonder with trip to see the glaciers and the Katla Volcano. The tour starts from Reykjavik, where you'll be passing by charming towns with mountains on one side and a picturesque sea on the other. A Super Jeep will then take you to Mýrdalsjökull glacier, where you'll get a chance to marvel at the otherworldly layers of differently-colored ice that are almost like stripes. Enter the glacier and explore, surrounded by giant ice walls on each side as your guide tells you about the glacier's history. At the end of the tunnel, you'll come upon the outlet glacier Kötlujökull, with the ice dome created by the Katla Volcano, which it's named after. It's a fantastic wonder, with its hole in the glacier roof where light shines in, creating a heavenly atmosphere. You'll also be able to search for smaller ice caves afterward, and enjoy the sight of the sun glistening off the ice as you head to Vik, where you'll be having lunch. Afterwards, you'll then go to see the Skógafoss waterfall, which is so majestic and eerie that it has been featured in films - the last stop before returning to Reykjavik around dinner time. Don't forget to take photographs of this unforgettable journey!

    Little bit disappointed as the expectations against actual is not really matched as the photos on the tour advertising is too beautiful to attract us to join this tour, but the sightseeing are super nice as beautiful weather in that day.

    The collection time is wrong. The local travel agency said that the group only departed at 9:00 and did not depart at 8:00, but because I collected the time provided by the klook website, I stayed in the hotel lobby for more than an hour.

    There are no travel agency information or contact information in the reservation information. There are special equipment and travel agencies. The tour group has delayed the departure of one hour and has not received the notice. It is known to other members who go directly to the travel agency to make reservations. I have waited for a few times on the street. More than a few hours before departure, I emailed klook a lot, and hit a HOTline that I never heard. After I left Iceland, I received the email they replied. I was so greedy that I got my own next time I would rather go directly to the travel agency. Will not find klook again
