Adventure of a Lifetime!!!!

Even though it was raining, this tour ended up being at the top of our highlights in Iceland. The fantastic views, the challenge of doing something so unique and the knowledge of our guide truely made this experience an adventure of a lifetime. Our guide Jon literally took us up the Glacier, he focused on our safety first then made sure that we were technically prepared for our climbs. He is filled with a wealth of information regarding ice climbing , the glacier and iceland. Rain or Shine, DO THIS TOUR!!!! (We did it in the rain and Jon had rain gear for us)

Dear Ahmet! Thank you so much for taking the time so hare your Asgard experience with us and future travellers. We are stoked to hear that our trip was one of your Iceland highlights. You were surely lucky to get the chance to spend some time with Jón on the glacier, you could not have been in much better hands. Kudos to you to brave the weather and tune in to the right mindset. Love it. Safety is always our number one concern, so we are happy to hear you felt safe and well throughout your glacier visit and ice climb. Again, we appreciate your kind words, they really motivate us to become better at what we do day by day. Safe travels, and if you ever find yourselves in Iceland again (hopefully), you know where to find us. Kind regards: Ásdís, Asgard
