At an altitude of 2300 meters you'll arrive at Rhone Glacier. Don't forget your camera as you explore the fascinating long blue ice tunnel leading to the Ice Room for approximately one hour. From here your small group day tour will tackle the Furka Pass, offering spectacular views over the Gotthard Massif.
