  • Excellent day spent hiking the glacier, exploring an ice cave, and giving ice climbing a try for the first time!!! Our guide was informative, funny, personable, and smart. We moved at a good pace and looked out for everyone in the group. Nothing was ever too slow or too strenuous. Safety was definitely a priority, which makes sense because it is easy to forget you are out in the wild on a glacier when everything looks surreal. We both wore the hard boots offered to us, which were necessary in order to participate in the ice climbing. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for a little adventure and some beautiful, unforgettable scenery!
