    Why we love Glacier Tour

    About the activity
    The glacier tour begins with a thirty-minute alpine walk through the surrounding National Park. Once on the customer built MAC boat, your guide will take you around what is called the Terminal lake, which is the result of the steady melting of the glacier thanks to global warming. It does however, give you the opportunity to approach the resulting icebergs, where you can touch and even taste the glacial ice.

     

    It is recommended that you bring an extra warm layer of clothing, sunglasses, sunscreen and a waterproof jacket on this adventure.
