Hello, That’s so unfortunate that the mountains brought snowy, cold conditions. You are right that the group is only as fast as the slowest individuals. That is one of the reasons our company chooses to guide smaller groups on the glacier. We have the smallest...More

Francois was an awesome guide. We came away genuinely comfortable with our rappelling and belaying skills. It was great that he was able to continually move the ropes so we got to try a variety of routes in a relatively small area. You can't beat...More

The region and the walk on the ice was beautiful. Unfortunately, with all respect, the walk was too difficult for some participants of the group, with the result that we didn't go very far on the glacier. I don't know if they were well informed.So...More
