We joined MICA Guides for their advanced ice fall trek. What an amazing trip! Our guide, Katie, did an excellent job moving us along incredible landscape at a pace suitable for our family. The whole outfit is top-notch. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Hello If you have the proper experience in traveling on glaciers it is possible to explore by yourself. But we do not rent any equipment.
