Conditions were poor with high winds, rain and minimal visibility but our guide made sure everyone was completely safe and knew exactly what to do. It was a great experience to be near the summit and on the glacier.

We start the tour with safety procedures, than walk on the glacier for more than an hour. Weather was perfect and the guide gave us very interesting and useful information. Safety was kept through the entire tour. We highly recommend this glacier walking.
