    Please note
    • You need to be fit enough to walk approx 500m on snow and ice, and be OK standing up for approximately an hour.
    • There are no age restrictions on the Classic tour and children are very welcome. It is an easy 1 hour walk inside the glacier, but the ground can be uneven and slippery (crampons are provided). The ride in the modified glacier vehicle can be bumpy. For toddlers and very young children (0 – 2 years old) we recommend having a baby carrier.

    • Jeans are not recommended for glacier activities. Once it gets wet, it takes a long time to dry, leaving you cold.
