We were very lucky to be able to take this tour (2 hr trek), as trips earlier in the day had been cancelled, and all staff were recalled off the glacier at the end of our trek due to bad weather. We were picked up at the port, and had a short ride out to their facility. We were given protective clothing, harnesses, helmets etc, before taking off in the helicopter. We were flown around the glaciers for a bit, before landing on the Mendenhall glacier, where we met our two guides - Michaela and Mattias (?). We were in a group of 9, with varying levels of confidence. Both my husband and I would have liked to explore more, but understood that the guides had to be constrained by the least confident person. It was cold and wet, but we still had a blast looking at crevasses and small rivers coursing through the ice.
It really was the highlight of our excursions. Thanks to all!
