Thank you from the team. This is one of the more amazing projects we have done. The contrast, especially in summer, between the lower lush Misty Fjords and the high ice of the glaciers is amazing.  Don’t forget to try the ground routes and dispatches using the Stalwart and (coming soon) the CIRP hovercraft. It is possible to take the Hovercraft from Summit Ice Station to Soule Landing, water to Stewart, go up river then up the glacier at Mt Pattullo. The water capabilitygives you access to both sides.  You will find the weather can be a real threat to air operations, pretty exciting at times. However, when the weather is bad, going out on the ice in zero visibility in a ground vehicle to check the weather stations with only your gps is a real treasure hunt. Enjoy.
