Fantastic tour with even better guide Adam. Views were breathtaking but depends on weather conditions. Special thanks to bus driver Carol who with her jokes was great insight in local life.

Our guide "Teddi" was great - personable and careful about the needs of the entire group. It was a fascinating experience to walk on the glacier with crampons - unique to us! DO IT!

There is quite a walk from the parking lot to where you get your crampons to where the glacier starts. Then the hike on the glacier takes some energy, but with the crampons you are not slipping at all. Excellent time up on the glacier. It's really amazing!
