  Mendenhall Lake Canoe Adventure
Paddle alongside the remarkable Mendenhall Glacier!

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 on the shoreline, and eagles, goats, salmon and bears may be seen. 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 where you will head ashore to 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.

INCLUDES: Round-trip transportation from dock, quality raingear and life jackets. Snack includes hot beverage (on cold days) and water plus reindeer sausage, salmon spread, cheese, and crackers.
