  1. It was really wild and wonderful traveling in the shuttle and entering onto the glacier. We were very disappointed as when we were entering the glacier there was a tour exiting which was extremely poor timing. There was a handful of us that were left standing outside in extreme wind an sleet. We became very wet and cold that made the rest of the excursion unfortunately much less enjoyable. The tour itself was very special, but for us I cannot rate it as one of our favorite.

  2. It was the most amazing tour ever. Each coin and more worth it! The incredible journey, amazing truck and super friendly staff especially the guide with his chauffeur which make our ride an adventure unique and amazing.
    Super recommended
