It is easy and not expensive to get to the chairlift, a very slow one, but a nice ride up. We walked down after approaching the glacier. It is a lovely walk with view of the town and cruise ship.

After our navigation tour we took a taxi to the tea house and from there we started the hike uphill to the observation point. If you are not used to do hiking it can be hard. But the good thing is that you can go...More

After a boring, steep slog up an old road (possibly part of an old ski run) the trail becomes a real trail and traverses beautiful meadows, rocks and scree. You can get pretty close to the glacier. It is convenient to town and easy to...More

Great, well marked trail. The first part is easy on a wide gravel road but it then narrows to a trail that goes over a stream and becomes continuously steeper as it traverses up the mountain. Gorgeous scenery all the way with great scenery of...More

We walked from town to the glacier. Took 3 hours from town to the glacier. Pleasant walk with good views over the city through the valley. Glacier is small but it is what it is.

The hike was very vertical, and can be very challenging if you don't normally hike. Very steep towards the top, but amazing views. We took a cab to the start of the trail and it's free to hike. We just grabbed a cab that dropped...More

Took a taxi to the "Tea House" from my hotel and back with no problem. Beautiful hike! Beautiful views! You can actually just walk from town, if you want. Cheap and totally worth it!
