    • Combine the thrill of 2 helicopter transfers, with the opportunity to explore a remote and pristine part of the glacier on foot. Glacial forces are greatest in this area and often create spectacular ice caves, arches and tunnels, brilliantly blue in colour.
    • Fishing is a key attraction of Lake Brunner, which holds excellent stocks of wild brown trout
