Glacier Tours were founded in 1985. The
road up there is only 16 km long, but takes almost an hour to drive
from road #1 and the unforgettable trip up there should not be
attempted with a 2wd vehicle.
On the way, it depends on the weather,
where it is interesting to stop to enjoy the view. At
above sea level, it is nice to make photo stops. Further up, at about
830 metres, is a mountain hut with a restaurant and sleeping bag
accommodations. This hut was built in 1991 and
belongst to the company Glacier Jeeps - Ice and Adventure. This company offers regular trips up there during summer.
