Absolutely beautiful! A must see and do. We were there in January and although cold it wasn't too bad. We eventually had our jackets off completely so don't let that time of year stop you. Never imagined how beautiful it was within the canyon. So glad we did this. Fantastic pictures to look back on.

Mick was our guide who is a geologist in his spare time, he was very informative and entertaining encouraging crowd participation. We were issued our crampons for our boots and of we went. frozen waterfalls walking through snow covered forest was enchanting, learning a bit of history along the way also. You turn a corner and again WOW! you just are presented such natural beauty. And before you return back to the bus a nice hot chocolate and bickkies to get you back. Thanks for the experience Mick
