The glacier hikes are arranged in all kind of weather. Rain normally don't stop us. The weather is a part of the glacier experience. Good clothing is important to make sure you don't get cold.
The colors in the ice can be even more fantastic in rain, but of course if we can choose we prefer the sunny days.

Then you will get refund if you are not able to switch date.
But, our experience is that the children need to be motivated their self to enjoy it. Panorama guy wants to meet same do not book hike if your children don't want this at all. On all tours we adopt the level of hike after the participants, we can regulated the length and the challenge for the hike. For families with children younger than 7 years old this is the only options. We do not allow children younger that 7 years old to participate on the "daily hikes". This means the sole are stiff and they have good support around the ankle.
Good boots are important for the safety, so we do not charge any extra for the boots, it's included in the price to borrow boots. Of course we understand if you prefer to use your own boots if you have, and as long as they are good enough you are welcome to that.
Bring them, and the guide will check them and give you the best advice. We try to be as flexible as we can. Cancellation or no show later than 24 hours before hike does not give a right to a any refund. That means, if you can cancel 5 days before the hike you will get a full refund.
