We booked the "Blue Ice and summit" adventure for a day with Matthias was our guide. First about the guide: Matthias proved to be the perfect guide; very knowledgeable and full of interesting information about the area's geology, plants, and glacier formation and changes. After instructing us on essential safety precautions, he set a very comfortable pace for our hike with frequent technical stops to adjust equipment as we progressed on the glacier and onward to the summit. Safety was obviously a top priority throughout and we were very glad to follow his experienced lead. We've hiked and climbed for decades in many different locations and really appreciate when someone has this level of attention and expertise. As for the hike itself? It was challenging but in a very good way, leaving us with the lasting joy of having accomplished something that day. The view throughout the day, from the valley floor to the summit, is a highlight among various hikes around the world. I still think about it months later and can't wait to go back again!

we were a group of 10, from 13 year olds to 50 plus Moms and Dads. We signed up for the Blue Ice Trek glacier hike. The guides couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. We ended up splitting into 2 groups. Dennis took great care of the Moms showing amazing patience and guiding them through many physical challenges. Matthias led the group of 9 including ably managing a mishap that could have been far worse. Being on the glacier was beautiful and fun. This was an incredible experience, one of our best vacation days ever! Everyone loved it, and them. Would highly, highly recommend them for anything in the area.

I had been recommended before to go on a Glacier walk, but we didn't expect to have our senses blown away by the experience. We had a private tour, and it was nice being able to set our own pace and be free to ask as many questions as we wanted. Mathias was our guide, and he was very knowledgeable, very experienced, and had a really good sense of humor. Doing the hike Mathias explained a lot of things regarding the nature, plants, flowers, rocks, lichens, water and just about every inch we covered during the walk. A part everyone in our group enjoyed was tasting the different edible flowers along the path. It also was very enlightening to do the walk with someone who had been there many times before for quite some years, and see how are the glaciers changing over the years (and days). Glacier walking is definitely not something one should do on their own, as it requires knowledge and equipment and having a good sense of the situation. We felt really safe and secure the entire walk. As a rock climber I could see that the equipment used was the best that money can buy and pretty new. I could really see that safety was taken quite seriously. A friend had recommended taking it as a private tour, and I was a bit unsure about it, before booking it. Our group had 3 people, and one had traveled from Brazil to Norway, so we wanted to get the most out of the glacier walk. We were all very glad to have taken it as a private group, and didnt regret for a moment spending the extra money. Once we were done, we were sure that it had been an experience of a lifetime. Definitely something we will never forget. To sum it up, we had our senses blown away by the nature, we learned a lot, felt safe the entire time, had a really pleasant hike and a lot of fun!

We initially wanted to do the Fairytale tour but Mathias recommended the Blue Ice trek for the time of year and we were not disappointed! We had such a fantastic day in which we were able to see caves, stretch our crampon legs and learn lots about glaciers and the plants growing in the surrounding area. It was just the two of us and whilst we wouldn't have minded going with other groups, it was nice to have a day that felt so tailored to us and I think the smaller number gave us more freedom to explore. Overall we would highly recommend this experience!!
