Want a more personal service? Then how about hiring a guide for your group (min. 2 people) to take you on custom made trips in and around Vatnajökull National Park. This idea is designed for those who want to experience hiking in ancient valleys on and around spectacular glaciers, go ice climbing, explore little known ice caves, go canyoning in rivers of snow melt. We favour this unique idea, as it gives us a chance to really personalise trips to what YOU want to do. Create your own adventure with us now!

To cancel or reschedule your trip, you MUST give 48 hours notice prior to when your original trip starts. If YOU cancel within the 48 hours notice period your booking will not be refunded. THE WEATHER, if conditions are severe enough to force Ice Guardians to cancel a trip, the option to rebook for another day will be made available. Poor weather does not necessarily mean dangerous, Ice Guardians will operate in rain, hail, snow and wind as long as it does not affect safety. We know that it is unlucky to get bad weather, but please remember that Iceland has an varied climate and there is nothing we can do about it. Hence, if rebooking a trip is not viable, we will offer a full refund.
