On this tour we will explore the crevasse riddled outlet glacier and also have the chance to test our ice climbing skills. With its amazing ice formations, sinkholes and jagged ridges, it is truly an unforgettable experience. We will provide you with all the tools you will need: ice axes, crampons and safety lines.
