It was amazing experience to be able to be on the glacier, absolutely different world than down on the ground.

We did a Snowmobile trip on the glacier with Arcanum Glacier Tours. The weather closed in with snow, effectively a blizzard once we reached the glacier. Despite that, it was still an amazing adventure, and we felt safe following the guide. The snowmobiles are a...More

Went with Arcanum. What a great group of folks. All necessary clothing included. Commercial ex rocket launcher easily gets you up the mountain. Snowed while we were up on top too. Pretty interesting knowing that 1,000 feet below you is magma!

hi, on the glacier definitely take a guide. it is a bit strenuous and you will be roped together + get ice crampons and an ice pick. keep in mind the glacier also generates cold, so it will be colder on there than it will... More
