    My daughter and I loved this experience! It was fantastic! So unique and fun! I don't know anywhere else that you could do this, so we had to try it! Our guide, Leif, was excellent. He was skilled, pleasant, accommodating, reassuring. I was nervous about becoming cold and wet but that did not happen. Floating amidst the ice was an unusual and relaxing sensation. And, Leif taught us interesting things about ice, cold, survival, etc. I highly recommend this!!

    Très belle expérience avec ma fille. Merci aux stagiaires françaises Satine et Elsa pour leur bonne humeur et la traduction des instructions de Leif très sympathique aussi. Patrick fut un excellent chauffeur de voiture (car nous nous sommes perdues et il est venu nous récupérer) et de bateau. À faire sans hésiter.
