This option of the Glacier Point Wilderness Safari is for guests overnighting in Skagway.
This outstanding wilderness expedition takes you through fjords, rain forests, colorful wildflowers, and towering mountain scenery to the spectacular Davidson Glacier. Your adventure begins with a 70-minute journey through North America's deepest fjord aboard a high-speed 26-passenger expedition boat. Watch for whales, seals, sea lions, and cascading waterfalls along the way to a remote beach at Glacier Point—one of the most beautiful places in Alaska. After a short, adventurous drive along the forested glacial moraines, and a quarter-mile walk, the forest suddenly opens to a breathtaking view of the glacier. The crystal blue ice tumbles from the jagged peaks into a pristine lake where a 31-foot voyager canoe waits to take you to the very face of the glacier. Throughout your tour, expert guides share their extensive knowledge of this amazing area. A picnic lunch at the beach, amid fields of wild strawberries and iris, tops off your Glacier Point adventure.
