Here, you will put on the crampons, get out the ice axes and rope yourself together before venturing to explore the glacier. The guide will take you past crevasses and across dizzying ice bridges while teaching you how to use an ice screw as an anchor point. If you’ve always wanted to experience a glacier up close, you’re also free to go up to 100 m inside the ice grotto at the end of our tour. (Distance: 4.5 km. Duration: 5-6 hours.
