Having taken a breathtaking trip with Nick last year, the experience alone brought us back to Canada this year just to experience it again. Our guides were highly knowledgeable of the geography and Mike spared no effort to ensure we squeezed every ounce of enjoyment out of our trip. This is simply a 'must-do' attraction!

Trip of a Lifetime

After a very scenic flight over the Fraser Valley, we landed at the glacier for kayaking- I was in awe the entire time. The water is literally the brightest blue... no filter necessary! Pictures cannot do this gem justice, I couldn’t believe I was actually there. Definitely my favorite adventure so far, worth every penny!

The entire glacier kayaking experience was unreal! The sights are absolutely beautiful, and the water is truly as blue as you see in photos! Nick, the owner, and pilot, does a fantastic job of making it a truly enjoyable trip from the time you arrive until the second you leave! I would definitely do this again in a second!

The whole reason we planned a trip to Canada was to go glacier kayaking and it did not disappoint. It was the most unreal experience we ever had. The helicopter ride was smooth and exciting. The scenery was beyond amazing. The water from the glacier was an incredible turquoise. Definitely recommend!
