It is amazing that you can visit this glacier easily. Walked right up to the edge of the glacier.

For a more rewarding experience, join a guided tour with different trip options up the glacier, hiking up or by helicopter. This is an wonderful experience of a life-time.

Remember to play it safe and follow the guides always.
