Our Glacier Crossing Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

Our Sports Travel Insurance will cover you whilst glacier walking abroad for leisure or competition, and includes cover for medical and repatriation costs, trip cancellation and curtailment, and more.

If you have an existing travel insurance policy in place with another provider such as your bank, but it does not include cover for glacier walking, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection for your trip.

Why do you need Glacier Walking Insurance?

Walking on glaciers is considered a high risk activity, because of the ever changing landscape caused by the movement of the glacier. 

As a result of this terrain and extreme environment the risks of injuries or arising accidents are high. Making sure you have personal insurance in place to fully protect yourself is highly advised, so if you need emergency care or rescuing, you have cover in place to provide you with this.
