Great experience, but a small walk on the glacier and too many in one group.

Staff were very helpful. Unfortunately, the weather was poor so flying conditions and visibility were not great (white out so no landing).

This was the only thing we booked in advance from back home. Worth every penny. Helicopter up to the Glacier, three hours ice time hiking. Our guide was the best!

Fun flying in the helicopter, interesting information from the guide, with very blue ice formations, but pretty expensive.
