We were on the glacier about 20 minutes and the distance we walked was very small. Lots of opportunities to take pictures, too. We enjoyed it very much!

I think we were on the glacier about 20 mins. We didn't do a lot of walking. However, our tour guides were great and walked us around safely to see glacier streams, big crevasses and rock formations. I highly recommend it.
