Tour Details

Be among the select few, under a limited U.S. Forest Service permit, to travel by canoe for an unprecedented experience at the face of the majestic Mendenhall Glacier. Paddle across Mendenhall Lake, navigating past icebergs, surrounded by one of the richest samplings of Alaskan wildlife you'll find anywhere. Birds including arctic terns nest in the towering cliffs, and eagles, goats, salmon and bears are all common sights. Then, venture within yards of the massive, awe-inspiring face of the living Mendenhall Glacier. Grab a thrill ride by skirting the base of beautiful and powerful Nugget Falls. Then refuel with a snack of Alaskan-style fare for the return.

You'll make your trip in a traditional Tlingit-style canoe, an exceptionally stable 28-foot watercraft, with all modern safety gear supplied. Because of the close approach to the glacier face, the Forest Service tightly controls the number of participants. Be one of the lucky few to experience this one-of-a-kind adventure.

Please Note: This tour will provide you lifejackets and proper rain gear, including boots.
