    Will definitely recommend this to my friends:)
  • Oi Yi 22 Mar 2018
    Having a chance to ride on drift ice is an unforgettable experience. Wearing special clothes is not cold at all. The tour guide was very enthusiastic and tried hard to bring us different experiences, but also did not forget to take photos for us. In addition, the sunset at the experience location is beautiful. Very worth recommending!

    It's really hard to get along with drifting ice. Experience it, but watch out for bad weather and may cancel or shorten your time.

    Walking in the frozen sea is a very special experience, but it is a pity that I can not jump into the sea playing too much water
