“Dear Birgitta and Thorsten, We like to thank you again for the wonderful days we had with you. We really loved and enjoyed the skating in the fairytale scenery and the perfect ice conditions. We also met new friends and together that is  one of the nicest things that can happen.
We spent our evening by watching the photos and videos of the skating and we look back with very warm feelings. Thanks again! ” – Jur and Margaretha Pels Netherland.

“I had the pleasure of experiencing a day with In Water On Ice. What an amazing time. They were knowledgeable about their territory (birds, islands, lakes, other animals, vegetation), friendly and professional. I could clearly see that they do this out of their personal love and passion of the sport. I would recommend them 100%.” – Heather Herbeck, former kayak school manager, White Salmon, Washington
