Visiting the glacier we can witness from a series of walkways huge chucks of ice breaking free from the face of the glacier and crashing with a mighty roar into the water below. A boat trip along the face of the glacier gives us the opportunity to admire its impressive height that reaches at points to 80 meters from the water level and stretches 5 kilometres from edge to edge.
