There are a couple of free walks open 24/7 to the public. The easiest is a 1.3km (~1mile) wooden path, that is even suitable for wheelchairs, but at the end you will have to climb some steps if you want to have a direct glimpse...More

Boat trips through the Ice Fjiord are recommended - the icebergs are huge, great tall cliffs and the sea ice and sea birds are all amazing. Try for early morning or late afternoon when the sun is turning gold - view to remember.

Make sure if you do nothing else dress warm in the winter. later up. Gloves are a must. I think I still have frostbite. It's like nothing you've seen before. Absolutely stunning.

It is stunning! Suggest taking a walk to here from town. The paths are good (still - have good shoes) and are easy to follow.

I am not sure which boat you will be on, but it could be a fisherman's boat. When we were there we had to climb down a latter to get on board. So it could be a bit tricky for you.
