Walking on a glacier is dangerous business and if you don’t know what you are doing, it could be the last walk you take in your life. If you don’t have experience, you must take a guide with you. Glacier ice is unstable and crevasses can creep up on you sending you plummeting into a whole and spiraling down below hundreds of tons of ice.

Frozen water leading down a deep hole is one of the most beautiful sights on earth. The ice is a vibrant blue that only a glacier can truly capture. I have never seen that colour anywhere else in nature.
