This a breath taking place. The views of the glacier and the small and others not so small icebergs on the lake is incredible. The ice with its blue, white and blacks colors are really nice and inspiring. We even saw a seal on one of the small icebergs, an unexpected nice surprise! Really worth it the visit!

This is an absolutely incredible place. We took the zodiac ride which was great. The ride was fun and getting so cloe to the icebergs was excellent. The Driver slowed down at almost all of the icebergs for pictures. We went right up to the glacier. He was an excellent driver and it was a wonderful experience.

You can walk around everywhere and see the lagoon and icebergs. We visited in June and there were many eiders and seals in the lagoon. There were thousands of arctic terns nesting all around. The boat ride added another element to the experience and is definitely worth doing

Not seen anywhere else, icebergs breaking from the glacier into a fast flowing river and out to sea.

This glacier lagoon is a truly stunning place when the weather is ok. It's cold but the sunset colors above the lake turn it in to a magical experience.

We enjoyed our zodiac tour of the lagoon. Got to go all the way out to the glacier and back, about 5 miles each way. It was sunny with about 55 mph winds -we were glad to be wearing their waterproof jumpsuits. Had to keep my camera tucked inside the suit on the ride back to keep the salt spray off of it but glad I had brought it. Took the first ride of the day which seemed to be a good plan to avoid crowds. Definitely book beforehand, They were sold out.
