It’s recommended that you bring warm layers with you, even on those warm summer days since some sightseeing stops will be a little cooler than others. Wear some good walking shoes with grip and bring your camera, sunscreen and some light snacks. Sunglasses are recommended for the Ice Explorer to reduce the brightness of the sun’s reflection on the glacier.
