We know there are questions around travel amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Read our note here.
Glaciers are essentially wide rivers of ice that store close to 70% of our planet’s freshwater and take up roughly 6 million square miles of its surface area.

While a trip to a glacier makes for a stunning visual and sensory experience through crevasse-filled terrain, caves, and fields of ice, the fragile, vanishing beauty of these icy landscapes also serves as an eye-opening reminder for tourists to tread lightly and thoughtfully as they travel. Here are nine epic, easy-to-access glaciers to explore around the world.
