Fantastic experience not to be missed, pick up was uncomplicated (a little bit of hanging around for people wanting the loo or stuff from the shop), brilliant driver (Steve) took us in the amazing truck to the glacier. We were met by a great team, all equipment included, quick

We were picked up at Gulfoss in a huge truck (much needed due to the weather conditions) and transported to the glacier. We had a great time - good opportunities to speed up a little for whoever wanted to, but also the opportunity to hang back and go slower if needed. The

Our family of six (grown children and significant others) had a great time. We'd never snowmobiled before, but the guides were excellent and led us on a fun ride. Even in a slight falling snow, we stayed warm.

Dear Sue, Thank you for sharing your experience with this tour. We do appreciate your feedback and we hope to make improvements. We understand that short notice cancellations can cause a lot of disappointment for travelers and we would never make such changes if we could do without them. All paying customers receive a ticket with our contact details - the phone number is there as well. We always do our best to get back to everybody as soon as possible. Of course, a refund is offered in a situation like this, but we cannot control the exchange rate or foreign transaction fees applied by the bank. Please accept our sincere apologies for this frustrating and disappointing experience. We hope you get a chance to enjoy snowmobiling on a glacier sometime in the future. Best Regards, Gintare B.

Dear Valued Traveler, Thank you for taking the time to share this experience with us. We’re very sorry to hear about the situation you’re in. Kindly note we do have a very limited number of passengers per tours and therefore, we have to apply our cancelation policy when it comes to late tour modifications/cancelations. We also state to exact address on the voucher and also provide GPS coordinates for easier navigation around. Therefore, to be able to treat all of our customers with the same rules and guidelines, we are not able to reschedule travelers if they contact us less that our indicated time. Let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with. Best regards, Elze
