For the majority of the paddlers out there, a typical SUP session usually involves someplace warm and easy to get to. But for a select few, that’s just too easy. These are the folks that go off the beaten path and travel to the far reaches of the globe for a paddling experience unlike any other.

Paddler Alex Ferguson definitely makes the short list. In this video from Kien Thompson, he paddles among giant glaciers in the Jökulsarlón Glacier Lake.
