I was a little worried what I might have gotten myself into when we got geared up for the glacier walk with a pick axe, harness, helmet with headlight, and crampons for our boots. With the exception of the crampons that you need to walk on the ice this was all for safety

Thank you for taking your time to write this review. I´m glad to hear you and the whole group enjoyed the hike so much. When I travel I always try to find the small Local companies, they are most of the time the best and you get to experience the area with the eyes of the local people.
