  • Itinerary

    Where most people stop, we gear up and use ice climbing equipment to go further.

    That is why we are happy to give you the opportunity to explore the glacier in a different way.

    We take you down to the meltwater channels formed in the glacier. Here we use equipment such as ice axes and ropes adapted to ice climbing. A certified climbing instructor with the necessary safety equipment will instruct and help you with climbing.

    In order to maximize the time spent inside the cave, the guests are transported in a sledge to the area where the cave is located, and we only use one snowmobile in order to take the greatest possible care of the environment.

    This is an exclusive trip with a maximum of 3-4 guests.
