Exploring an Ice Cave

November 2012

The Glacier is a constantly changing environment, so every tour is different. If you are fortunate, you will see unique and beautiful formations in the ice. My group was lucky enought that we found this cave and it was deemed safe to go in and have a look. I hope you enjoy your hike as much as I did.
