Winter & Glacier travel
Our aim is to deliver to you the best winter trip you have ever had. Our focus is on finding you the best conditions and helping you to comprehend all you see and feel. Having our glacier experts helps us to adapt itineraries last minute should the weather change or snow conditions turn out to be better elsewhere. It is glaciations, cloaking the mountains in snow and ice and splintering the rock into fantastic shapes through the freezing and thawing of water in cracks, that makes Alpine mountains so spectacular, exciting and of a siren beauty. Glaciers are the bodies of permanent snow, hardened by time and pressure into ice, that flow out of the mountains. They are fed by the heavy snowfall of winter and melt in the warm temperatures of summer. When the rate of melt is greater than the natural rate of advance due to gravity, the glacier is said to be retreating.
