Information on glaciation, geomorphology (inc geothermal spring to dip your hand in) geology, flora and fauna
Suitable level for beginners and all ages and abilities - a great family-friendly experience
Please note this tour does not get close or to view the terminal face of the glacier due to safety reasons - the main part of the valley was closed permanently in February 2019 due to rockfall risk
