  • A dream, the excursion... more complete navigation + story + walk + adventure in 4 × 4 + excellent food and, finally, the icing on the cake... "the best views of the Upsala glacier". Excellent staff very good attention. What if gave me very nostalgic when you dismiss the staff that stays in the room. I recommend this 100% experience.

  • The location is impressive, because access is only by boat. The location is very nice and pleasant, since the arrival on the pier to the resort. Lunch is expensive, but is very reasonable. However, you can bring your own meal as there are tables available and lunch is soon upon arrival, avoiding that be carrying bags for the rest of the tour. The visit to the Museum is very interesting. But the highlight is a visit to the glacier (included in the "Discovery"). The way scary, but the view of the glacier is unforgettable. The trick is to buy the site "take off". Paid in national currency and in parcel up to 10 x.

  • My family and I loved this excursion. The views of the Upsala glacier are stunning, and the whole excursion is very well organized. It's very pricey and the boat trip is a bit long (3 hours to go, 1.5 hours to come back), but it's a great experience nonetheless.
  • The Instance has no big attractions, Cristina the Museum does not have nothing to arouse the public interest by presenting only items of the family owner of the Instance. Lunch on site is very good, although not be sophisticated, the funcionairos are all very attentive and kind. To Instantiate Cristina worth for your visit the Upsala Glacier, which sits on your property.
