Trip advisor reviews

Great trip!

We went on the 3-4 hour trip (the West Glacial River), and had a blast. Our guide was Chris and he was very friendly and helpful. The drysuits were good and kept us warm. The views on the trip were amazing, and at one point we could even get out of the boat if we wanted to (so that we could be in the glacial water). Recommended!

Perfect experience!

This was my first time and a great experience. Beautiful landscape combined with nice and experienced guides and a lot of fun! I can highly recommend it to everyone who want to do something more than the standard sightseeing.
