Awesome trip, we did the ebikes and hike option with Julia guiding I highly recommend it, it’s a new trip and was a fun ride to the start of the trail and then a brilliant walk through the valley to view point. Slightly different to the heli trips but a great alternative. Julia was very knowledgeable and paced the trip really well.

We got a flight with a helicopter, very quick (same day) and it was definitely worth it.

Fox Trot - Half Day Glacier Walk. Well worth the money, the guides were very informative and showed us things that usually only a full day tour get to see - cave and crevasse when available!

Good activity, but you have less time than you pay for on the snow.

Spend a whole day walking on the ice. It is a shame it is melting down, too much dirt and rock in the ice. Really beautiful place.
