Take an exciting 4-hour trip on Kennicott Glacier Lake. Paddle among icebergs, hike on the rocky surface of the ancient ice, and watch as geology happens before your eyes. This tour is a perfect way to get on the water, soak in the serenity, and enjoy some of the finest views that Kennicott Valley has to offer. Your expert guide will entertain you on a special interpretive tour of one of the newest geographical features of our beautiful valley. As you paddle around this ever changing landscape, take a walk on the glacier itself for some very unique vistas. Listen to the glacier as it quietly cracks and tumbles, while you scout for bears and other wildlife along the shores and even sometimes on the ice! Your guide is versed in glaciology and loves to talk about the “giant freezer” that ends abruptly just outside of town.
You will also learn about the historic Kennecott Mines, the countless 6,000 ft+ mountains, the unbelievable mile high Stairway Ice Fall, and the towering 16,000 ft+ Mount Blackburn. Experience Alaska as if you are paddling your “SUP” in a fine art painting. For the extra adventurous, test your paddling abilities on some of the rapids that flow directly along the glacier. Otherwise, just relax and take it all in!
