Alaska’s Glaciers & Whales

This is the glacier adventure. The itinerary features many icescapes, including the famed LeConte Glacier, the southernmost tidewater glacier in North America, as well as Baird Glacier, Sawyer Glacier and South Sawyer Glacier. Hike on the terminal moraine of Baird Glacier, and kayak, stand-up paddleboard and skiff in hidden coves and narrow fjords, including the iceberg waters of Tracy Arm.

Guided hikes offer options for various activity levels, from boardwalk trails to bushwhacking and boot-sucking mud. Plus, enjoy stellar whale watching in Frederick Sound, with plenty of opportunites to spot eagles, arctic terns, black and brown bears, sea otters, harbor seals and sea lions.
