  Mendenhall Lake Canoe Adventure
No other glacier adventure even comes close!

Be among the select few, under a limited U.S. Forest Service permit, to travel by canoe for an unprecedented experience near 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 a safe distance 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.

Tour Includes: Round-trip transportation from the pier, traditional Tlingit-style canoe, puts you within yards of the face of the Mendenhall Glacier, expert guides narrate on the natural and cultural history of the Mendenhall Glacier area, quality raingear, overboots and life jackets, snack includes hot beverage (on cold days) and water plus reindeer sausage, salmon spread and crackers.
