Well worth the expense

★★★★★ Reviewed by Madeline on 2018-08-14
This was one of the coolest things I have ever done in my life. The glacier is spectacularly beautiful. You feel like an arctic explorer walking around in crampons. This is tiring but not overly difficult. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience that should not be missed. The guides are knowledgeable and offer solid training. Don't forget to pack your own lunch.
