Mostly 1’s: Gorner Glacier
If you went for mostly 1’s, then plan your next trip to the Gorner Glacier in Switzerland! This is the perfect glacier for someone who believes in trekking through most of the day to reach a gorgeous view. It’s located in the Monte-Rosa massif at the base of many 4,000 m (4 km) peaks, including the Dufourspitze, Nordend, and the Zermatt Breithorn.
From the Gornergrat railway you can see the Gorner Glacier, which is the second-largest continuous glacial surface in the Alps. An advanced trek of around 8 hours leads you to a majestic view of the grand mountains. If you’re lucky, you might even spot an adorable alpine hare or two!
Mostly 2’s: Greenland Ice Sheet
If you went for mostly 2s, Greenland Ice Sheet should be your next vacation, This coast-to-coast ice sheet has almost entirely shaped how the world views the enormous northern country. The ice cap was historically largely uninhabited because Greenlanders preferred to reside on sea ice that provided access to the fertile waters below.
The Greenland Ice Sheet is becoming a popular destination for tourists looking for recognizable Arctic adventure, due to airplanes, boats, and most crucially, wanderlust. A 3-4 hours of ride through the choppy waters on a sturdy steamer, followed by camping on the majestic ice sheet is surely a unique experience. You could also get to spot a walrus or two wading by your side when on this ice sheet.
Mostly 3’s: Glacier Bay
If you mostly went for the third option, Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve in Alaska should be the glacier you should visit next. A highlight of Alaska’s Inside Passage and a part of a 25 million acre World Heritage Site—one of the largest internationally protected areas in the world—Glacier Bay National Park spans 3.3 million acres of rough mountains, dynamic glaciers, warm and sunny rainforest, wild coastlines, and deep, sheltered fjords.
Glacier Bay offers plenty of adventure and inspiration from the sea to the summit. The majority of visitors to Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve spend a day there while on a longer cruise that starts in a significant west coast city. The best of Alaska is being explored on this wonderful day of the cruise. During a journey through the ice ages, the ship enters the Fairweather Mountains’ interior.
Observe icebergs and glaciers that are calving. Look for animals along the shorelines; it’s common to spot mountain goats, sea turtles, sea lions, fur seals, golden eagles, and a diversity of seabirds.
