This ice fjord produces the greatest amount of icebergs in the Northern hemisphere. There are two ways to see this : by zodiac cruising offshore amongst the icebergs, or, hiking on land through a boardwalk path to the ice fjord. Both ways are a must....More

Take a short walking tour with a local guide to fully appreciate the area. Then spend more time going back to some of the longer trails to immerse yourself in the grandeur of this place!

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.
