We went there for the Pinguins encounter, which is new and unique in the world! I took the VIP experience, which alows you to spend a good hour with the pinguins, caressing and feeding them. You also have a private tour with all the informations you can imagine about the pinguins. It's very interesting as you're learning a lot about them and you can interact with them.
We did it with our 4 and 6 years old daughters and it's been a great moment for all of us. The other great thing with the VIP package is you're alone with the pinguins, have a photograph with you all the time and all the pictures are included in your package (private camera/pictures are not allowed in the pinguins area).
About the cold, I was wearing a short and a t-shirt, but they provide warm clothes... the pant is warm, but not the top, so when you're at -3C you might regret not bringing a long sleeve t-shirt or a sweatshirt with you... Concerning the feet, they provide snow shoes and socks, but you will leave the place with your feet wet (take an extra pair of socks for after...). They have lockers to drop your bags,...
To book it, you can try the Skidubai website, but the online booking wasn't working yet when I've tried, so I had to call to book it in advance.
