... month which always helps to give the tour a good atmosphere.
The glacier itself was huge and we could see ice and snow in all directions. It seemed that every few steps there was another great view or ice ravine to peer into. I ended up taking far too many photos...again. The ice was really thick but of varied density. Less oxidised sections appeared blue in colour, creating pretty streaks and patterns in the more transparent ...
... contort out through a very tight space at the end. The ride back was just as amazing. After lunch I went for a walk in rainforest. Not as exciting as the morning, although it's pretty cool that you can be on a glacier and go to a rainforest on the same day, without hardly travelling anywhere.

... views the whole way around the hike. It was set along a costal path, winding through forests, hugging the coastline at points and offering us numerous look outs and entrances to the empty sandy beaches below us. We had an amazing picnic on the beach, having it to ourselves. The walk was not strenuous but very fulfilling.
