Wake Up Reykjavik Tour Review by Silvia G

Breathtaking beauty of Iceland

Wow! Booking this tour was the best decision! We had an amazing guide who told us many interesting things about Iceland. Canyon and ice cave hike were highlights of our two day trip. 100% recommended.

Wake Up Reykjavik Tour Review by Charlie
A trip of a lifetime. This tour was fantastic!

The two day trip was nothing short of amazing. We loved every second! Firstly, our guide was fun, friendly and knowledgable. Being a small group, he was able to still keep it personable for each guest. The bus was super comfortable - lots of room to stretch out and quite a bit of storage too. We were blessed with some fantastic weather (albeit a little cold…) which made for some very scenic drives. We were entertained the entire way, and not once were we bored of some of the long-ish drives. We were able to tick off the majority of our bucket list places in Iceland on this tour. The glacier hike was out of this world!

Fantastic 2 day tour with glacier hiking

The 2-day trip I embarked on was an absolutely extraordinary experience, surrounded by breathtaking landscapes. Throughout the journey, we had the privilege of witnessing numerous magnificent waterfalls and glaciers, adding to the awe-inspiring nature of the adventure. Our guide proved to be an invaluable asset, consistently offering us an effective travel route that ensured we made the most of our time, even when faced with challenging weather conditions. He skillfully adjusted the itinerary, adeptly avoiding crowded tourist groups and adverse weather, which allowed us to appreciate the beauty of Iceland without unnecessary disruptions. Or guides expertise extended beyond navigating the terrain; he also imparted his profound knowledge of both the natural wonders and the rich historical heritage of Iceland. The tour was such a great and fruitful adventure.

  • What if the weather is bad during my travel dates, will that effect my tour?
    The weather here in Iceland can vary, so should the conditions not look favorable for the tour our partners would reach out to you and try and offer an alternative date, should you be unable to join at another time you would get a full refund! Due note that all Glacier Tours are completely dependent on weather. Sometimes they have to be cancelled at short notice due to strong winds or warm, wet weather which can create dangerous conditions. Your safety is our top priority, so we will only go on a glacier hike if conditions allow us to do so safely.
  • Is the Glacier Hike difficult?
    The glacier hike is aimed for first timers. It is however good to not that the ice can be steep and uneven in sections. If you struggle with walking for one hour at a good pace or don’t enjoy walking on uneven and sloped ground, then the glacier hike may not be for you. Thankfully, you can opt for more tranquil options on this tour. The steepest sections involve stair like features and slopes. You will be wearing crampons (spikes) on your feet, and full mobility of your ankles and knees is necessary. The glacier hike on this tour is around 2.5–3 hours in total, with around 1.5 hours spent on the glacier ice. The hike covers around 5 km (approx. 2.5 miles). The hike requires a moderate fitness level AND full mobility. Each guide on the trip will make the final decision at the time of the hike. If they refuse to let you on the ice, please know it is purely for the safety of not just you, but also for the rest of the group.

    Rain jackets, pants, and hiking boots are provided free of charge; it's recommended to reserve these during booking to ensure availability of your size.
  • Where do you pick up and drop off? Can I be dropped off outside the downtown area?
    Due to traffic restrictions for tour operators in residency areas in Reykjavík, we are unfortunately unable to pick up directly from some accommodation and hotels and must use designated pick up locations provided by the City of Reykjavík. If you are unsure which one is the nearest pickup location to where you are staying, please just let me know the name of the hotel or address and I can assign you the nearest pickup point.

    Lunches and dinners are not included, but we will stop at places where you can purchase them additionally! You are allowed welcome to bring your snacks and drinks. Also be sure to bring along waterproof jackets and pants for the unpredictable Icelandic weather. You must also have strong, waterproof hiking boots that go above your ankle in order to wear the crampons (spikes) that are required on the glacier.
