          Dit motel was een prima uitvalsbasis. Met vriendelijke en behulpzaam personeel. Aan te bevelen.

          ... snow and glaciers and it's hot..... Unless the wind gusts...then it's cold. I was a bit disappointed in not going to see the next lake but it was also quite spooky at the mountain and I think we were both spooked at the roll over. There was a free camp there which we'd missed on our map... As we'd already booked and paid for the other one we went back there. Less spooky good view of the lake ...

They can also open spontaneously and with the recent snow fall may be precariously hidden from view however our expert guides safely navigated our group across the glacier. It was a truly amazing sensation to be trekking across the ice river which is several kilometres long and 200m deep in places and continually flowing several millimetres a day. It was also hard to appreciate its size as the guides pointed out ...

          ... we packed then went out to the hot pools. We'd received a complimentary ticket each from our glacier tour so thought we might as well use it. The pools we're quite nice but there were not any views to enjoy whilst soaking. After an hour or so we headed for dinner. I ordered the “mountain of nachos” which truly was a mountain. It tasted great and I ate as much as I could before eventually being defeated. Nicole opted for ...
