    Hello Laura and thank you for the feedback. It really means a lot to us to hear from our customers. It is true that the snow conditions in Iceland can be very unpredictable and inconsistent. Leifur and Roger are one of our finest guides and I am happy that you got the chance to meet them. We hope to see you again soon on another adventure. Best regards, Íris
