Glacier Point Wilderness Safari Tour | Same Day

Excursion Overview

Travel through fjords and rainforests!

This wilderness excursion will give guests the opportunity to travel through rain forests and fjords while taking in some of Alaska's most impressive scenery. The outstanding sights will range from wildflowers to expansive mountains, and eventually, open up to jaw-dropping views of the Davidson Glacier.

The adventure starts aboard a custom-designed boat able to provide an up-close sightseeing expedition. All along the journey through the deepest fjord in North America, guests with a keen eye may spot seals, whales, and outpouring waterfalls. A naturalist guide will educate guests about the surrounding sights and beautiful landscape as they pass through.

Upon arriving at the secluded beach at Glacier Point, guests will have a brief, venturous drive over the forested glacial moraines. Once at the base camp, guests will be able to gear up in the provided rubber boots and life jackets. A short quarter-mile stroll into the forest opens up to reveal a stunning view of a crystal clear lake and Davidson Glacier above. A voyager canoe awaits guests here, from which they will enjoy a trip paddling around the lake. Guests treat themselves to up-close glacial views and the impressive Alaskan wilderness while their guide imparts their considerable knowledge of the surrounding wild landscape.

Upon arrival back at the base camp, guests can enjoy a picnic-style lunch along the beach before their returning trip via catamaran. A perfect excursion for the family or solo traveler!
