There were quite a few icebergs in the lake so obviously some have broken off recently. ...
... you are welcome to take one of the extended glacier walk tours - no matter how unfit, obese or infirmed. But if you are a day older you are obviously totally incapable.
At least I was still young enough to undertake the 90 minute walk. Over 60s on the other hand need not apply. Enough whinging. The experience was a-mazing!
We started with a cruise across the ice fed lake to reach our access point for our glacier ascent. After fitting the ...
