    It was amazing!! We had perfect weather in the afternoon and our guide Andres was incredible. He told us so many interesting facts and brought tea and cookies for our break. The water was gorgeous, the views even better, and Andres took AMAZING pictures. We got the picture less than an hour after we left and over had the best time. 10/10 recommend, definitely worth the price.

    Magical winter kayaking adventure! Warm dry suit and foot + hand wear provided. Once out on the clear, glacier green water on Lake Brienz we were transported into a magical, quite, serene landscape by experienced, friendly guides. A winter adventure not to be missed

    The guide was knowledgeable and adapted the tour to the participants’ comfort level. We kayaked through sunshine then clouds then light rain with wind but received very clear instructions on how to navigate the waters to get back to base. It made you feel very accomplished. I wish we could have ventured further along the lake.
