We have been looking at the Big Ice Tour through Hielo y Aventura tour company. The total cost of that trip is over $400. It is unclear to us if there are other tour companies that run a similar tour. I have read some posts that imply that, but we don't want to book that tour unless we know that there is no other comparable, less expensive option.
Also, is the Big Ice tour worth that much more than the mini-trekking? It seems like it would be, but there have been some posts saying that the Big Ice tour is very touristy. I have not seen similar things written about the mini-trek.
any words of advice?
