The glacier was not like how I expected, instead of all white and blue it was all black and brown due to rocks. However our guides did a splendid job, they made sure everybody was safe and enjoying the trekking on the ice.More

Thanks a lot for your comments Nature is what counts on that details, and the colour of ice only depends on the way light goes inside it! (consider that Ice, like water, is transparent!). Volvanic ashes make some areas of the ice surface black, grey...More
