What our guests are saying...

Great excursion, would recommend

Very much enjoyed our excursion. Robert was our guide - he was very informative and made it a good trip. His knowledge of the glacier was extensive. It was well organised and all of the equipment that was provided was perfect. The day of our trip was quite wet, but the equipment we had meant it was not an issue. The glacier and landscape was fantastic and overall it was a trip that I would very much recommend. I believe it's a lot better to be part of a smaller group as is the case with Asgard, as you have a chance to see more and...

Unique experience!

As the glacier is melting and changing every time, it is always a different tour; but these guys still know exactly what they're doing and are willing to give you the ultimate experience. I'm so glad we booked the tour with them! Actually, it was a recommendation from a friend and he was right, it was awesome!
Thank you so much!

"Awesome day trips including ice climbing"

My climbing guide was just brilliant - a knowledgeable pro climber who was easy going, yet knew everywhere and everything about the region. Really fun and not a tacky day or cheesy day out - a proper climbing day out. Highly recommended ! Not a typically touristy thing to do - a really memorable high-end experience. Cheers Robbi !!

Private glacier tour and introduction to ice climbing

"I am an experienced ice climber and my wife had never ice climbed before. We wanted to experience it together in Iceland. Asgard Beyond provided Robbie as a private guide for our full day outing to Sólheimajökull glacier, about two hours from Reykjavik. Asgard provided transportation and all of the gear (ice axes, crampons, harnesses, ice screws, ropes, etc). We ascended 2-3km up the glacier and setup 3 different 10-15M top roping sites. We were introduced to basic techniques such as knot tying, placing...

Glacier Hike

A wonderful day with a very knowledgeable guide.

It was so beautiful. It ended up just being my husband and Myself. One of the best days ever.

Glacier hiking on the south coast of Iceland

Cannot recommend this highly enough. Had a great day out hiking the glacier and stopping off at the waterfall and the beach with famous dead whale. 

This is definitely a tour where quality of experience is a priority rather than cramming loads of people on a single tour. 

If you want to have great day out with a friendly and professional guide than this is definitely for you. Do it!! You won't regret it.

Glacier hiking on Sólheimajökull

I can only recommend a tour with Asgard. 3 of us went for a glacier walk and it was so interesting and personalised. No big group - just the 3 of us. We saw loads of group of 20 going on the glacier, I can not see how they can appreciate the beautiful scenery like that.

Professionalism incarnate!
 
We went out in a group of four with Raggi onto the glacier. Raggi was really good at inspiring confidence and explaining all the important elements of ice climbing. The important thing was the group size. With only four people this does not feel like a mass produced tourist experience. We passed groups of 12 plus people and I am so glad we werent in a tour like this. The qualifications of the guides allow them to choose their own path and go where they think things will be best. 
Getting lowered into a Moulin (hole...

"Perfect end to 2015"

My two friends and I joined the Glacier Hike on New Years Eve, and we couldn't imagine a better way to spend the last day of the year! First off, I was extremely happy with how friendly and knowledgable our guide, Gaddi, was. He made sure we were properly informed about hiking safety, as well as provided us with the proper gear for the hike. I felt much more comfortable using the hiking boots that Asgard provided than I would have hiking with my own snow boots. They also gave crampons, a helmet, an ice pick, and waterproof pants and jackets to...

Cool Experience - Glacier Hike and Falls

Just 3 of us with our guide, one of the company owners. Friendly, knowledgeable. It's quite a drive from where we stayed but the scenery is beautiful. Got to hike on the glacier (sad part is how fast it is receding in length and depth). Very interesting. We drank from a clear, stream of glacier water and rapel back to the edge of an extremely deep Moulin. Stopped at several gorgeous waterfalls and the area where the 2010 volcano eruption hit hard on the way home. Highly recommend!

"Heart racing glacier hike"

For a number of reasons this trip simple takes your breath away, at the very last minute having been let down by a trip booked with Thomson's holidays our hotel reception found the Glacier Hike trip for us at 10.30pm the evening before (we'd only just found out the other was off) Our little party was hubby & I, neither of us what I'd class as fit, and our companions two young students, and our guide, who was not only very knowledgeable about the area, but made us novices feel extremely comfy, the saying early bird catches the worm,...

Northern light tour

We went on the Northern lights and glacier your. Was only us in a super jeep and the guide was great. On the glacier, there by ourselves and then went off road hunting Northern lights. Great little company and made the trip feel special!

Glacier adventure

Absolutely fabulous! It was astonishing! I never forget the glacier hiking with Asgard Beyond. Great responsibility, high quality of guiding and worth every penny. I highly recommend this company!

Glacier hike

Brilliant. When we booked the trip we had no idea what we were had signed up to... In a good way!

Firstly, no big groups. There were only the three of us (they only do small groups). This meant comfort and flexibility, but most importantly individual attention. Everything was arranged to also miss the big groups and bus tours. We got in ahead of the bigger groups and for most of the trip practically had the glacier to ourselves!

Second, expertise. Our guide, Raggi, was a wealth of information. His knowledge and expertise made this trip a...

Fantastic Experience!
As a habitual traveller to Iceland, I have been fortunate to experience many of the natural wonders of the country. The Glacier Hike did not disappoint. The combination of an extremely informative guide, small group scenario (2 plus guide) and amazing weather made the day trip to the glacier both extremely interesting and very personalised.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about the natural changes occurring to the glaciers and have an exhilarating trip.

10/10 rating

Ice Climb + Hike on Solheimjokull

It was supposed to rain and be quite windy the day of our trip, but our guide, Kiddy, told us we would still go unless it became unsafe. Turned out that the rain and wind held off and our group were completely alone on the glacier. Couldn't have asked for a better experience, it was only us and another couple so there wasn't much standing around and waiting. Our guide let us explore but kept us safe, even kept a good humor when I got tangled up in the line while climbing. Our group had all never climbed before and wore out...

Fantastic experience

My wife and I booked a glacier hike with Gaddi on Saturday, 11th June, which ended up being just the three of us. Gaddi was extremely knowledgable, friendly, patient and professional. We had a fantastic day glacier hiking for the very first time and I would highly recommend booking this activity through Asgard - Beyond when visiting Iceland. The early start was appreciated, which meant we avoided the other, larger groups and almost had the glacier to ourselves. Asdis was very helpful when we made our booking and provided us with all the answers...

They plan everything perfectly!

It was really amazing! First i liked that it´s a small group of 4 people so we could move more freely than a big group, we left in perfect time so when we went to the glacier we didn't see many other people. Guide was really amazing and he showed us how to climb on ice. Ihad never done in my life any climbing but after instruction i managed to do even the advanced climb which by the way is incredibly amazing! Would highly recommend this company, they plan everything perfectly!

Asgard provided tailored trips for our family with kids aged between 6 and 14. Everyone had a fantastic time, there was flexible planning around the weather and for food and toilet stops etc. All kit provided even spare waterproofs. Our guide was a gem, knowledgeable, patient, and charming. Highly recommended.

Ice climbing tour at Sólheimajökull glacier

I had the BEST time ice climbing at Sólheimajökull Glacier with my guide, Robbi! E-mail communication with Asdis beforehand to arrange the trip went very smoothly, and Asdis was prompt and very friendly in his replies.

I rock climb, but I have never ice climbed before, and so there was so much I wanted to know about ice climbing. Robbi is a very knowledgeable and experienced ice/rock climber, and we talked a lot about ice climbing, waterfall ice climbing, and rock climbing during the day. But his knowledge doesn’t...

"My son and I just returned from an amazing trip to Iceland. Our two days of adventures with Robbi included many of the highlights of our trip. I cannot say enough about our experience with Asgard Beyond; from the planning to the actual trips, it was all perfect. We had the opportunity to ski tour, rock climb and explore lava caves. When we cut short our rock climb, Robbi graciously adapted our day and took us to the lava caves (which we would never have known about otherwise.) Plan a trip to Iceland and connect with Asgard Beyond!"

Glacier hike

Amazing tour!!! Ragnar, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable and skilled in his leading us on this great experience of hiking the glacier. I highly recommend this company as it will be a small group and the quality is so much better than a big company. The price is a little more, but by the time you add the rentals of the equipment with the other company, it is the same price so by far worth going with Asgard!!!!
The pickup is in a nice comfy van and again, I cannot say enough great things about Ragnar. He made our time so enjoyable and it...

Glacier hiking with sight seeing and superjeep

"It was a fun experience and we knew we were in safe hands with our knowledgeable guide Jon. We were able to customize where we went based on our interests. I even found some cool wool rugs I bought off a local farmer. Thanks!"

One day glacier course at glacier Sólheimajökull

Excellent glacier course at glacier Sólheimajökull where two great guides from Asgard-Beyond taught us lots about using crampons in glacier hiking, risk assessment in route, chopping steps in the ice and ice climbing. Professionalism, knowledge, friendly and relaxed atmosphere are the highlights of this great day :-) Thanks so much on behalf of Toppfarar, a small mountain hiking club in Iceland.

Ice Climbing on Solheimajokull

This. Was. Awesome!! An unbelievable experience doesn't even do this justice. Our guide was Robert, "Robbie" to Glenn, and he made the trip for sure. Incredibly knowledgable on the glacier, Iceland and ice climbing. After a quick tutorial on how to use crampons and our ice axes, we were lowered down to some crazy beautiful crevices with waterfalls and mirrored ice walls. I thought we were just walking around on the glacier, but boy was I misguided. (By my wife, never by Robert). He was super helpful and a great teacher as well as...

Amazing glacier hike

Superb experience, I'm so glad we booked a glacier hike with Asgard Beyond. Gaddi our tour guide was great, made us feel safe and was really informative. I learned a lot about the glacier and Iceland too. It was great being in such a small group, it let us go at our own pace and felt like we had the glacier to ourselves most of the time! It was much better than being in a large group and well worth the extra money, plus decent boots and equipment were provided which is useful when you are travelling with hand luggage. Would highly recommend!

"Let me share my great impressions from the trip you've planned for me on Vatnajokull. It's was great!!. Perfect track and carefull care. I felt really safe. Thanx again and I'll be back."

"Awesome trip, would definitely recommend"

I think we choose the worst week to travel! All the northern lights trips and day tours were cancelled due to bad weather! But luckily we were signed up with these guys and they gave us the option to switch to the full day tour to gain more from our experience. We were extremely grateful as we were only in Iceland for a limited amount of time and had other tours booked on other days. Communication was excellent! Staff were helpful, friendly and knowledgeable! We had a fantastic trip despite the weather and would recommend...

Tailored private tour

"We'd been looking for a day tour to combine a glacier and super jeep experience when we came in contact with Asgard Beyond. They were very flexible and planned the day with regards to what we wanted to do. We were four, so we fit into one jeep with the guide. Our guide for the day was Raggi, with whom we felt very comfortable and could ask almost whatever, regardless of if it was questions on the physical structure of the glacier or on the volcanic history of Iceland, he always had a satisfying answer. After a short stop at...

Glacier hiking day trip with northern lights

My family and I had a wonderful day trip to the Sólheimajökull outlet glacier. Our knowledgable, friendly guide Robbi was an absolute delight. The meal we ate at Skógarfoss was delicious. Despite Robbi's best efforts, the Northern lights did not show up for us that evening but all in all a great day!

"Outstanding, fun, professionals. My wife thanks you for bringing me back safe :-) Thank you all for an amazing experience."

Private waterfall ice climbing

"Excellent! I have spent 2 quality days waterfall ice climbing with Robbi from Asgard in the Christmas break (as one to one guiding). The weather was not ideal, but the routes Robbi picked to warm up and then progress during two days was excellent. We actually finished last climb in snow blizzard - it was epic! Full professionalism, great knowledge of terrain and great teacher to show you how to get better. I am booking next trip already! If you ever thought about ice climbing then look no further. I can really recommend going one on...

Glacier hike

One of the most amazing experiences. We booked (daughter and mum) a trip with no climbing!
We choose the private tour which included 4 young guys from America looking for adventure who were firstly disappointed by not doing climbing and having a very middle aged person keeping them back
BUT Ali our guide was truely amazing, he was patient, informative but most important he was reassuring and confident. We were able to take out time on climb up, whilst he kept the guys entertained with stories and photo opportunities 
I would have to...

Check that off the bucket list!

I loved the fact that it was a small group, so the hike was tailored to the people in the group. Our tour guide, Gaddi was so professional and extremely knowledgeable and skilled. The weather was cooperative, and the views were spectacular! I also leanred a lot about glaciers! I had never been on a glacier hike before and my hiking skills minimal at best, but I always felt safe, and was challenged just enough to make this be one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life! I would do this again in a heart beat and have been...

Simply amazing

Glacier Hike @ 26th June, ended up being just two of us! This relatively young, quality-oriented company has delivered what they've claimed; prompt communications that resolve your pre-tour doubts and concerns, fine gears that keep you warm and dry on the ice, and, most importantly, knowledgeable guide who's willing to make extra efforts and time to make this Journey one of your unforgettable lifetime experiences by fulfilling what you had wished for, well......going into an Ice cave in June for example...LOL, whilst keeping you safe and well-taken...

"Awesome day trips including ice climbing"

My climbing guide was just brilliant - a knowledgeable pro climber who was easy going, yet knew everywhere and everything about the region. Really fun and not a tacky day or cheesy day out - a proper climbing day out. Highly recommended ! Not a typically touristy thing to do - a really memorable high-end experience. Cheers Robbi !!

Incredible experience!

The glacier hike would not have been the same without Raggi. He was by far the best tour guide we ever had. Really thoughtful and always made sure we were safe. The trip was comfortable and we learned many things about all the places we went. Totally recommend Asgard!

"What a way to end the year"

Spent a fantastic day hiking on the Solheimajokull Glacier yesterday. Wanted to say thanks to our friendly and welcoming guide, Gaddi. He answered all our questions with patience and good humour and was sympathetic to our desire to take photos. He was clearly passionate about what he was doing and reassuringly experienced! We were impressed by the quality of the equipment that was provided: 66 North rain gear, Scarpa boots, helmets, crampons, harnesses and ice axes. As Glacier virgins it was great to spend three hours hiking on the...

Highlight of our trip

Thank you Jón, Ásdís Dögg, and Guðjón for our amazing adventure. Asgard Beyond exceeded our expectations! This was the highlight of our trip!

"Best tour company in Iceland"

My sister and I (ages 26 and 22) travelled to Iceland in November, and wanted an authentic trip that allowed us to experience all things Iceland. Ice climbing on a glacier was the priority on the top of our list, not only because it's adventurous and would provide some adrenaline, but also because a guided tour would allow us to safely experience a glacier in all its majesty, first hand. I did quite a bit of research before booking with Asgardbeyond because we didn't want to pay loads of money for a tour that "babied" us or had a heavy...

Glacier hike and ice climbing in Iceland

If your in Iceland this small, cute fantastic company is the one you want to go with! They do amazing trips. I went Ice-hiking and Ice-climbing and this is the most amazing thing I've done in Iceland,and I'm from Iceland :-)
The guide that we had was amazing with years of experience witty and funny and had loads of stories, as well a good storyteller.
They will provide you with overalls, boots, helmets and axes. Just remember to dress properly, it can get cold but at the same time hot when your walking especially...

Family of 3

We had a fantastic day with our guide from Asgard Travel. While weather prevented us from doing a glacier hike/ice climb as planned, we toured the South Coast with a great guide who was extremely knowledgeable, resourceful and helpful. He worked at the perfect pace for us. This day was one of our favorites in Iceland.

First volcanic glacier hike

We had 3 of us on the hike, two 50 year olds and a 22 year old. It was such a wonderful tour! Had an educated and passionate tour guide, Reggie, who guided in addition to educating us about the landscape and history of the glacier. It was the best part of our trip. We came from Reykjavik and the drive was 2 hours one way but was worth it. Reggie was an excellent guide, patient with the group hiking levels, and made sure we all had a great experience. Although they are a relatively new company, you would never know it. Everything was as...

"Unforgettable trip to the glacier, highly recommended!"

I cannot recommend them highly enough. Avoid the coach trips and experience the real Iceland!
