“Once in a lifetime opportunity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

If you have never been on a real Glacier, here's your chance. There is great place to stop for a bite to eat, and to sign up for a tour of the Glacier. You can't go up there alone by yourself, but the tours are fairly priced, and you will have a great guide and be driven up in a specially made vehicle to traverse snow and ice.

“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.
