Perfect combination of aerial views with actual time spent on the glacier with naturalists guiding you. First class operation with professionals at all posts. Very assuring watching the operation especially when loading your family on a helicopter.

It was cheaper to book it independently. As long as she can climb into the helicopter and walk on a surface that is a bit uneven she can do it. My mom is 94 and definitely couldn't do it now but definitely could have at 89.
