This has absolutely been the highlight of my trip! The teams at The Helicopter Line were really helpful, friendly and reassuring as to what would happen.
Rob our climb leader was really supportive especially to a few people in the group who were not as confident climbing. This is a MUST do!

Well organized and informative trip. Glacier is shrinking quite a bit so not quite so impressive as in previous years.

An awesome walk to the foot of the glacier. Had a great guide who told us lots about the glacial valley. Note that you do not walk on the glacier.
