Absolutely Stunningly Fantastic !!!

This has to be one of the best experiences I have had so far. No wonder it is rated so high. Right from the check in staff to the guide who likes to be called “Stretch”, everyone was at their best. And the experience on glacier was just unreal. One thing off my bucket list.

A worthwhile journey, except a little unfair

A once-in-a-lifetime hike! Incredible glaciers! The staff is also very serious and responsible, from dress to shoes, are very carefully taught. The only thing that got a little angry at the end was that the guide made it very clear that the seats in the helicopter should be switched back and forth on the way down! But when it came time for our helicopter, the guide knew he should have switched seats, but he didn't! Don't understand why the guide is so unfair!
