This was ok. It was part of other sight seeing including the waterfalls and hot springs. They were fantastic despite the howling wind. However the main reason we took this trip was for the snow mobile. We had 30 minutes each (I didn't time it...More

While I am sure this is a wonderful activity 10 months of the year, it was terrible in August. There was no snow- just ruts of ice. The trail was completely washboard, so unless you enjoy a totally jarring ride with no letup, you won't...More

We did not do the ice caves as it was too warm in May, so it was too dangerous. Check with with the travel Company, they were very accommodating, I cannot see thee being a problem.
