  • The 2km road that leads to the glacier from highway 1 is quite bumpy. We did it on a small 2WD hatchback very slowly (~20km/h) in winter.

  • Beautiful. It’s a bumpy road there. Just drive slowly. It’s worth the view! Go past the little gate and walk as far as you feel comfortable
  • Beautiful place.. specially for travellers from warm/hotter geography, standing on glacier is an ultimate experience..
