Really friendly guides. They gave us very nice introduction into the history of the Tasman Lake and how to safely kayak among the giant icebergs. Paddling among the ice blocks is awesome. You can't get very close to them for safety reasons, but they look impressive anyway. Actually we could touch a block of ice about 3 meters long (which may seem small, but one need to realize that we see only 10 % of its total mass over the water level). We had truly beautiful views of the surrounding peaks during the trip.
This is completely different experience than sea kayaking on the azure crystal-clear warm waters elsewhere. Paddling was very relaxed, which gives you a lot of time to enjoy sights and sounds of the glacier. Guides were happy to answer all our questions; and believe me, you will have a lot of them.
At the end of the trip they served few years old Whisky on 2000 years old glacial ice. Where else can you get that?
