Good to know

It is mandatory to bring warm clothing – even in summer, don’t forget it’s a glacier.

We recommended waterproof shoes and warm socks. Base and mid layer clothing, waterproof and warm coat, hat, gloves and sunglasses.

If the weather doesn’t allow landing on the glacier, specially modified glacier vehicles will take you safe and surely on the top of the glacier to the ice tunnel.
