We did a lot of homework on Vatnajokull ice cave day trips and operators before deciding to go with South East Iceland. Hugely glad that we did. Siggi was a great host and guide, sharing both his knowledgeable insights and great sense of humour. This trip was the highlight of our stay in Iceland.
Ziggy's trip was one of the top highlights in an 8 day trip filled with amazing experiences. He is knowledgeable, fun, well prepared. He timed our visits to allow us plenty of time in each of three caves. In one cave, we were the only ones there. In the busiest cave (Crystal Cave), he worked it out so that we arrived as large numbers were leaving and we could explore with minimum others. He told us stories and explained the area's history/background on the way to and from the caves. He had equipment for us (i.e., crampons) so we could walk on ice with confidence. Everything about this event was perfect!
My friend and I had booked an ice cave tour with Guide to Iceland, and they never showed up - Siggi was on site and we asked him if he could take us - SERENDIPITY! He is impressively knowledgeable, well-prepared, professional and patient! Gave us time to take lots of pictures, had lots of stories to tell and knows the area like the back of his hand. When in Iceland, an ice cave tour with Siggi is an absolute MUST! Thanks again, Siggi, for an amazing experience !!!
We made our way to the lagoon to take pictures and made an impromptu decision to join the ice cave tour. It was lucky they have slots for us and we immediately paid for it! The tour has 6 of us. It was the perfect size! The other groups went 30 mins earlier than us and Siggi our guide brought us to the least crowded caves first before going to the crystal cave! By then, the crowd has dispersed! He allowed us to take as much time as we would like! The whole tour lasted for almost 3 hours! He also helped to take fantastic pictures and suggested good spots to capture pictures! I was told they are able to do customised tour for you! Highly recommend!
We did the crystal ice cave tour with our 8 month old baby and it was just perfect. Siggi is well-prepared, professional and made sure our baby was at most safety. Reynir was our guide and he was very patient and gave us all the time to take pictures and shared his knowledge with us. I was very happy on how they took care of us and the baby. Siggi is the only person who accepted to take us on a tour with a baby into the cave. We thank you for creating memorable moments in my daughter's life. I'm sure she would cherish it.
There is no doubt that the ice cave we've visited with South East Iceland is amazing, beautiful and extraordinary..However, this tour would be just one more beautiful place on Island if not guided by an amazing person Siggi. He made this visit wonderful. Siggi - the owner and guide of this company is "simply the best"! :) With a lot of knowledge and passion to his country and a lot of respect to the nature. What is more.. with great sense of humour! Really outstanding person. I truly recommend Siggi ad South East Iceland!
Today we did the jeep tour with Siggi in the mountains near Hofn. Beautiful places where your not able to come by yourself. Thanks Siggi, it was a wonderfull day! We hope to come back once in the winter, and for sure we will contact you again.
We can highly recommend Siggi's custom tour planning. He showed us places we would never have gotten to on our own, and he spoke with great enthusiasm and knowledge about this area in which he lives. He is a true outdoorsman and an excellent ambassador for Iceland. His jeep was very comfortable and safe, and we felt completely at ease with Siggi as our guide.
We loved our superjeep tour with Siggi because he's so passionate about this area where he grew up and still calls home. Even though the weather was cruddy that day, we still enjoyed visiting the National Park's glacial lagoons, as well as a super-secret cave and waterfall that made our two boys (8 &10) feel extra special. (Plus they loved splashing through the water in the jeep!) Just tell Siggi what kind of experience and sites you want in your tour, and he'll make sure you get it!
Siggy (South East Iceland Efh) is a knowledgeable & trustworthy tour guide specialist . We enjoyed his company throught and he was precise & prompt in explaining the geographical facts behind the formation and the current state of the glacier.All necessary safety equipment gears were provided to make the Crystal Ice Cave tour a memorable one for us. I strongly recommend Siggy's tour for everyone and I am sure you will vouch for the same too. Cheers
My husband and I booked a trip with Siggi of South East Ehf and we were super pleased. He was extremely fast in responding to emails. He suggested several different tour options based upon our interests and what we hadn't seen earlier in the week. We settled on a private tour. Siggi picked up us at our farm near Hofn and the rest of the day we relaxed and enjoyed the incredible scenery. He booked our snowmobile tour for us prior to our arrival, and delivered us to the top of the Vatnojokull glacier for the tour and a nice meal and beer at the cabin afterwards. The F road to the top was a little scary, and we were glad Siggi was at the wheel. After that, we had great fun in the super jeep visiting out of the way glacier lagoons and waterfalls where we were all alone. Best of all, Siggi, having grown up in the area, had the answers to our many questions regarding the geography, the fauna, sheep, weather, customs, anything! He also suggested other places to explore on our own the next day, as well as great places to eat. We will definitely seek out South East Ehf on our next trip.
