    Pretty basic hotel but the staff try hard. Nothing in this small town. If you need to stay because of a helicopter flight or similar then fine but that’s about it . Cannot see why you would stay unless you had too.

    No, you cant walk up to glaciers. There are helicopters rides, and buses which can take you at base of glaciers.
