... for 2 nights and would usually do the glacier walk on Friday but the weather report isn't looking great so it was best to get it done today and not take the risk by waiting. It was a beautiful sunny day today, although very cold, but it made it perfect for walking and I'm so glad we won't miss out on this incredible place.
