A substitute when our original excursion choice was cancelled, the Glacier Flight with Walkabout did not dissappoint! This is a small tour group, ours had eight participants, and we were pointed out sights along theshort ride to the airport where we received our jackets, pants boots, and saftey instructions. (I will admit that I found the boots rather uncomfortable to walk in) The group was devided into two for our flight to the glacier. Amazing scenery, and we spotted many mountain goats as well as a solitary black bear on our trip to the "base camp" where our glacier walk would take place. Upon landing we received the last of our equipment and safety instructions, and then it was off for approximately a 45 min. hike across the glacier. Each of us had been provided a hip pack containing a bottle of water and energy bar. At one stop our guide, while pointing out the running water along the surface, encouraged us to open up and pour out that water to refill with fresh glacier water... it was amazing! We were also fortunate enough to be able to see and enter an ice tunnel that was currently present near the base. Glaciers are always moving and changing... no two days will have the exact same conditions, and our group was very excited for this opportunity. After everyone had a chance toenter and get photos it was time to head back to camp for the flight back, which provided another series of breathtaking views. Helicopter tours are not inexpensive, but this one was very much worth the price, and then some.
