Time of year
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.

Amazing! We had a unique tour, visiting the glaciar is gorgeus. It went over expectation, we felt very confortable, they are very professional and they took care of us in all the aspect. The time flown by!
Date of experience: January 2020
Everything was fantastic, they made us feel like we were hiking, exploring and having fun with friends and we had one of the most incredible experiences of our lives in one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever seen!!! Can’t wait to come back soon and go on more adventures!!!
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.
