The best day.
Helen_R, Jul 2022
Gundy gave us The. Best. Day. The trip was well organised and the equipment was of a high standard and quality. We had a leisurely kayak across the lagoon, through the icebergs and then walked up onto the glacier. Gundy’s experience of the glacier, local knowledge and anecdotes about her family and their lives were really interesting. We had a really lovely time with her.
Great adventure

Fun excursion of kayaking up a glacial river and in a lagoon amongst the icebergs and then hiking up a glacier. We had the place to ourselves. The views all along the way were amazing. The guides were knowledgeable and kept us safe.
