When booking a winter trip to Iceland, there was nothing more than we wanted to do than go on a tour of the ice caves. However, we waited a little late to book our tour and almost missed out on the experience completely!
[expand title=”Click here to read this Lesson Learned”]
You see, there is a ‘season’ for ice caves. They form each winter and collapse at the first sign of spring. We contacted every ice cave tour company available and EVERY single company was completely booked for the remainder of the season. The ice caves must be seen with an experienced guide, so it’s not something we could have done on our own. Luckily everything worked out in the end as we were able to personally hire a private and very experienced guide who happened to work for one of the major expedition companies, and who graciously met up with us on his day off. This was a real long shot though, and almost didn’t work out, which means we would have missed the experience of a lifetime!
Lesson Learned: If you have something that you desperately want to do on your next trip that requires a reservation, make that reservation just as soon as you can, so you don’t miss out!
