One of the best excursions I've been on....in the world. This is a very unique experience to trek across the glacier for three hours. Saw ice caves large enough to walk in, waterfalls, and lakes...all in the middle of the glacier. We had three very knowledgeable guides who always put our safety first and kept eyes on the group. The lead guide spoke English well and with the small group size it was easy to catch all of the educational details about the glacier. The crampons are very basic and rudimentary. With the way they strap to your feet, it is better to wear hiking boots since they are sturdier. Breathtaking views up close of the ice wall where the glacier meets the lake. Listen carefully and you can hear pieces cracking and see them calving!
This was a fantastic trip. It is a long day - but ever moment is memorable. From the climb from the boat through to lunch on the glacier, this is a day filled with experiences that I will never forget.
Awesome tour, the glacier is amazing. Be ready to hike, 5 hours total and about 3 1/2hrs on the glacier itself. Weather conditions are variable so check forecast and bring a little more than you need. They have a storage area after the boat ride, so you can lighten your load for the hike itself. Dont forget glovesice is sharp on hands, sunglasses and sunscreen. And bring snacks as lunch is at 2pm. Definitely worth the money.
This is the famous Ice Trek -- very well-run company. Everything went very smoothly from the pickup at 7am to the drop off at 7pm. They've obviously done this tour a million times and have honed every part of it. It was surreal to be walking around the ice field for 4 hours really cold, wear hiking boots, I wore running shoes and it was a bit painful with the crampons. Great experience and highly recommend it through Viator -- we got a much better price that through the actual company.
This tour was amazing!
The guide on the bus was very informative as were the guides on the glacier hike who gave you the basics to ensure you could use your crampons and to make the most of your experience on the glacier.
