This outstanding wilderness expedition to the spectacular Davidson Glacier leads you through fjords, rainforests, colorful wildflowers and towering mountains.
Board a high-speed 26-passenger expedition boat for a 40-minute journey through North America's deepest fjord. Watch for whales, seals, sea lions and cascading waterfalls along the way to a remote beach at Glacier Point.
Upon arrival at the beach, you'll board a 4-wheel drive safari bus for a short drive across the forested glacial moraines. After a quarter-mile walk, the forest suddenly opens to a breathtaking view of Davidson Glacier. The crystal-blue ice tumbles from the jagged peaks into a pristine lake, where you'll board a 31-foot voyager canoe to journey toward the very face of the glacier. Conditions permitting, the tour may include a .5-mile walk over sand and pebbles to touch the glacier (optional).
Expert guides share their extensive knowledge of this amazing area. A picnic at a beach amid endless fields of wild strawberries and iris tops off your adventure.
