This itinerary is very weather. I was originally unable to participate on schedule due to weather factors. Fortunately, there are alternates for the next morning. It is really worth participating! The magnificent hands-on experience of nature is even more touching! The Glacier Guide is very humorous and will explain carefully, and will also tell you how to walk more stable and safer. This trip is a must experience to go to New Zealand! worth it!
