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 40-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 -- take a short, adventurous drive along the forested glacial moraines. After a quarter-mile walk, the forest suddenly opens to a breathtaking view of Davidson Glacier. 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. Expert guides share their extensive knowledge of this amazing area.

Conditions permitting, your tour may include a walk to touch the glacier. This is an optional ½-mile hike over a sand and pebble beach.

A snack at the beach, amid fields of wild strawberries and iris, tops off your Glacier Point adventure before you return to Haines.
