This trip was amazing. It involved snorkeling in two degree water between the tectonic plates. We were concerned about the temperature but the equipment provided kept us warm and cosy. Make sure you wear a base layer (thermals) and go to the loo before you are squeezed into your teddy bear and otter suits. No previous snorkeling experience is neededMore

Our group of 7 was led by Thor (his short name) and it was great! The tour was informative, safe and fun. We had an opportunity to ice climb briefly and had a thorough tour of the glacier. Strongly recommend!More
