You'll be able to traverse the terrain safely with the provided crampons as your wander around the dazzling melt pools, fill your water bottle with refreshing glacier water, and gain a newfound appreciation and understanding for glacier and their life cycle before getting back in the helicopter and enjoying a breathtaking scenic flight back to the base.
