Amazing experience

This tour was absolutely fantastic. Our guide, Athol, was encouraging and knowledgeable about the glacier and the climbing. I was impressed by how well he guided everyone and kept a watchful eye on the people who weren’t as experienced. It was the absolute highlight of my trip. Amazing all around. Highly recommend it.

Your climbing crampons are provided, and the guided hike is offered 2-3 times a day so it’s easier to fit into your schedule.
