We use sit-on-tops kayaks, that are very stable and easy to steer. You don’t need to have previous kayaking experience.

As you push away from the shore, you will enter the amazing world of the iceberg-filled glacier lagoon. Your guide will lead you around the glacier between the icebergs and tell you all about the area’s history and future. You will have the opportunity to admire these natural wonders from a perspective that can only be seen while on the water. After 1,5 hours of gliding along the still surface of the lagoon, you’ll head back to shore with a lifetime of memories.
