Glacier Walking

Glacier Walking can be an exciting and unique experience, which you may not get many chances to do.

The difficulty of the sport can change constantly, due to the ever-varying nature of the Glacier.

The levels of exertion, length of the trip and risk of injury that can be incurred will all depend on the individual trip and experience, due to the changeable surface of the glacier.

Before embarking on this type of trip, make sure you are fully equipped with the correct apparatus and clothing, including the correct shoes or boots.

Always listen to your Guide and follow any instructions you are given to ensure you have a safe and exciting experience.
