This is a must do activity. You fly up the mountainside to the glacier field. You can see sheep and goats on the rugged mountains. Walking on the glacier is exciting. The pilot explains everything and is very helpful. We loved it.

OMg this was the best trip. We did the pilots choice and landed on 2 glaciers and it was fantastic and on the day the weather was perfect. Would highly recommend it rather than the one glacier stop. He pilot is awesome and was very informative.
