Observing the melting of glaciers is wonderful, but also very dangerous, as long as we observe the events on the water.

The kayaker also realized this firsthand when he and a friend made a trip to the glacier, which was melting due to high temperatures.


Josh Bastyr and a friend were kayaking towards the Spencer Glacier in Alaska to take a closer look after hearing loud bangs.

At first, Josh filmed dropping small icebanks in the immediate area, followed by a huge shock.

Most of the glacier had collapsed before his eyes, and the water fairly splashed the both kayakers.

Curious kayakers managed to capture the whole scene on camera, and the video really takes everyone’s breath away.

Look at the moment when part of the glacier collapses before your eyes!
