    Activity Details

    Equipped with leather walking boots and other equipment, you board the helicopter for your first flight over the pinnacles of the lower icefall. Here, the ice is in constant motion.

    Your landing site on the ice is a remote and exceptionally beautiful part of the glacier at approximately 800 metres above sea level.You will see the stunning Victoria Falls, which is the melting river from the hidden Victoria glacier.  At this stage, your guide outfits you with crampons, specially designed for these ice conditions and you follow the ice steps cut by your guide as you explore the amazing formations.

    Each departure is a true voyage of exploration. There are so many changing features that the guides always find something new. Please note that this is a natural and ever-changing environment. Ice features change constantly and no guarantee can be given that specific features will be seen.

    Weather permitting, Minimum of 3 people required (if you have less than 3 people in your group, we will do our best to put you on a trip with other people).

    • 直升机是满打满算3分钟,体验过后发现,可能坐直升机这段才是超值票价的地方。冰川刚开始十几分钟蛮有意思,后面一个多小时两个小时千篇一律。应该选择更高价位的服务,到山顶去爬冰山。

    • 真的很值得一去,从未有过的体验。运气很好,天气很棒,全程两个多小时一直很兴奋很激动,蓝色的洞穴,震撼的瀑布,延绵的冰川,帅气的向导。很完美的体验,记住去的时候带墨镜哦!

    • 任游预定的还是很靠谱的 个人觉得安排给我们这一对的向导没有途中碰到的其他队的向导好 冰川上其实看到好几个很蓝的冰洞 别的队停留了 我们队并未停留 停留看蓝冰的位置并不是最美的地方 也未体验喝冰川水 小失望
