“Majestic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The glacier is breathtaking, take a tour on the glacier. The tourist centre is very educational. I felt the superior power of nature at that place.

“We hit it just perfectly.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

When we visited in June, the weather had been overcast and rainy. It cleared up that evening and was perfect for the next day. We took the trip to the top of the ice field and were delighted. it was worth every penny.

“A MUST TO VISIT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

WOW- if you really want to see what pure water looks like- see this place. Glacier water has a deep blue tint caused by pressure when glaciar was formed. you can see this under the snow and you will think you are standing on glass ! MUST MUST SEE THIS PLACE, excellent education for kids
