Walk to a glacier

A travel blog entry by traveleasy


... Very beautiful tiny clumps of tiny flowers.

Tried the morning tea at the hotel, but wasn’t very impressed with it, not sure what it was called either. But the coffee was very welcome. Sat outside on a bench in the sun and put my feet up. Took an 'arty’ photo of the glacier as it was reflected in th window of the hotel.

Then walked back down to the pier and caught one of the first zodiacs back to the ship. ...

Day 9: 1 hour on land.

A travel blog entry by luckydux

A travel blog entry by flyingbat

It was a good tour and I think in the summertime, Bybus actually have a similar Summer Panorama tour which goes to more places. I haven't put their link on this blog because they seem to be developing their website and there is no information on it at the moment.
