Mendenhall Glacier Canoe Paddle and Trek - JUC6

Ready to reserve this excursion?

Experience the consistent and stunning Alaskan views from both land and water on your journey to the awe-inspiring Mendenhall Glacier.  Mendenhall Lake is treasure trove of natural beauty that rests in front of the glacier. Your guide will outfit you with gear, orient you to your canoe and provide a safety briefing before you paddle toward the Mendenhall Glacier. Glide between the towering cliffs and catch a glimpse of some of Alaska’s amazing wildlife. Look for white, small, and slender Arctic Tern seabird nest near the lake. Mountain goats appear high in the mountains along the rocky outcroppings. Watch as billies, nannies and kids make their way to the Rock Peninsula jutting out into the lake. Black bears are also seen occasionally in the brush.  As you paddle across Mendenhall Lake, you’ll pass floating blue-hued icebergs and the powerful Nugget Falls waterfall cascading down the mountainside. When you reach land, trade your paddling gear for backpacks and crampons and absorb the beauty of the beautiful thirteen-mile long river of ice. The glacier offers plenty of areas to explore such as its ice caves and crevasses. You’ll see glacial streams and blue pools. During your trek, your guide will inform you of how the changing climate has caused the glacier to retreat and show the recession path through time.
