Very nice tour. We had an individual tour, because we were the only ones and even the only ones on the glacier. Our guide was very friendly and he took very good care of us! We would definitely recommend the long glacier tour to everybody!

This is real gem of a trip. It is a small group with lots of time. The guides were brilliant, friendly, helpful and patient. Great value for money. Completely unrushed.

We did a private tour with a group of 4. During the tour, Rowan accommodated every request we had while still being very conscious of safety. The Glacier we visited was completely private resulting in an amazing experience.
