Count yourself among the select few to travel by canoe for an encounter with majestic Mendenhall Glacier. This small-group outing includes a maximum of 19 privileged guests.
You will paddle a traditional Tlingit-style canoe -- a stable 38-foot watercraft with modern safety gear supplied. Paddle across Mendenhall Lake, navigating past icebergs, surrounded by one of the richest microcosms of Alaskan wildlife you'll find anywhere. Venture within a safe distance of the massive, awe-inspiring face of the living Mendenhall Glacier and keep an eye out for wildlife, including bald eagles, Arctic terns, goats, salmon, otters, bears, and more.
Grab a thrill ride by skirting the base of beautiful and mighty Nugget Falls, where you will go ashore to refuel with a snack of Alaskan-style fare for the return trip.
Dress warmly in layers with a wind- and waterproof outer layer; bring gloves, a scarf and a warm hat. Bring extra socks. Minimum weight is 40 lbs. Waterproof rain gear is provided. Waiver must be signed and medical conditions disclosed. This is a hands-on activity that requires participants to paddle for extended periods.
