From the car park it’s probably 20 minutes to get to the glacier up close, it was a great site to see and you can really explore the trail and glacier but once you reach the glacier you will need shoe spikes to go further. My partner and I didn’t think it was worth the rent/tour price and wished we’d purchased some cheap spikes at home but they are necessary to continue up and on top of the glacier. But even with us not going on top we still had a great time enjoying the sites.

A lot of fun. Very easy hike on the side of a volcano against a beautiful icy glacier landscape. Very safe, maybe too safe :p. Wanted more. May have to come back...

We saw time lapse of this glacier receding in the 'Chasing Ice' documentary but nothing prepared us for the vast space which the glacier had dominated until recently. The glacier itself was amazing and our guide (Maria from Glacier Guides) was the best guide ever! She made sure we knew how to stay safe on the glacier and gave us plenty of history while showing a lot of respect and love for the glacier. Highly recommend this glacier and this tour or one of the longer ones!

Although there were more visitors there than I expected , it was still so special to see a glacier up close. We booked a walk through a local guide company and they equipped us with hard hats and safety (climbing) harnesses and crampons - which enhanced the experience as we felt prepared and safe. The total hike time was 3 hours. We would consider a longer hike if we were able to go again. It is amazing to see the crevasses and the ancient blue ice. you can also visit some spectacular waterfalls along rte 1.
