It was a great experience getting to actually go out on a active glacier. Plan and get tickets in advance so you won’t be disappointed. This is a must see when you are visiting the ice field parkway.

Wonderful experience, the Tour Guides were very informative, it was like being at home (the Tour Guide to the Glacier was Aussie). Do yourself a favour add this experience to your bucket list.
