Glacier Walking Travel Insurance

Glacier walking will give one of the most unforgettable memories.  Glaciers are not only a natural tourist attraction, but also an object of many researches.  They can grow bigger, melt, and change their form and colour. This beautiful natural wonder of blue and white colours is a must-see for every traveller. However, you should remember that you shouldn’t try glacier walking without caution, experience, knowledge and special equipment.

Glaciers are in a constant motion, that’s why they are so dangerous. They may have deep crevasses, usually hidden under the layer of snow. Avalanches are another threat to glacier walkers as they occur unexpectedly and are hard to predict. To protect yourself, enjoy this activity with certified guides and don’t walk on or around the glacier unaccompanied.


Take a trip you dreamed about and get the protection you need for a reasonable price.


The risk of slipping on the ice is very high. Slips and falls can lead to bruises and fractures. It is also possible to slip and slide into an open crevasse. Sometimes the ice makes towers which are extremely unstable and can often fall. People standing too close to such formation may be killed by the falling ice. Note that summertime is strangely one of the most popular seasons for guided glacier walks. But no matter what season you’re travelling remember to wear proper winter clothing, hat, shoes, gloves and sunglasses.
