Your professional guide will instruct you step-by-step on how to trek in crampons and use an ice ax on glacial terrain.

The trip begins with a drive from your pick up point to the West Glacier Trailhead in the Mendenhall Valley. At the trailhead, you’ll be outfitted with a backpack that includes all of your necessary glacier gear before embarking on a 4.5 mile trail hike to the glacier through a temperate rain forest.

If you choose to experience the ice climb, your guide will help you suit up in your glacier gear and locate the safest point to access the glacier. Following a safety briefing, your group will spend about an hour on the ice (dependent on the group’s hiking pace and the weather). You will explore accessible features such as crevasses, ice caves, moulins, melt water streams, pools, etc.

After glacier play time, you will repack your gear and head back to the trailhead. Make sure you save energy for the return hike!

Travel by floatplane to Windfall Island where you will kayak to within a mile of thePack Creek Brown Bear Sanctuary on Admiralty Island. A short beach walk will take you to a spot ... morewhere you may see brown bears fishing for salmon...a truly amazing adventure!
An unforgettable wildlife viewing experience! With the world’s highest concentration of brown bear, Admiralty Island is known as the “Fortress of the Bears.” From Pack Creek to Windfall ... moreHarbor Bear Sanctuary, the bear viewing options are endless!

Book this tour soon – permits are limited and sell out early!

Your guide will greet you, outfit you and provide a safety briefing. Then you will begin with fabulous flightseeing as you wing your way through the fjords of Southeast Alaska to your viewing location.

From here, you’ll kayak to either Pack Creek or Windfall Harbor, both prime brown bear viewing areas. These world-class wildlife viewing destinations provide protected habitat for brown bears while affording visitors unique opportunities to view and photograph wildlife.

Brown bear, eagles and other wildlife abound! You will see bear fishing for salmon and/or eating berries, shellfish or meadow grasses. Eagles are extraordinarily abundant along the shoreline, and the cries of loons haunt Admiralty’s lakes. This is truly one of the gems of Southeast Alaska.

Bear Viewing at Pack Creek includes a kayak from Windfall Island to Pack Creek, a total roundtrip paddling distance of about two miles. Of the two primary bear-viewing areas at Pack Creek, the most accessible is a sandy spit of land right at the mouth of the creek, a short beach hike from where floatplanes land and boats tie up. Slightly more challenging is a beautiful one-mile trail through an old-growth rain forest to a viewing tower. The tower has room for eight people and is an excellent place to watch bears as they roam directly below you.

Bear viewing at Windfall Harbor includes a kayak from Staunch Point. This is one of the most scenic paddling trips we offer with a total roundtrip paddling distance of about five miles. You’ll kayak along the remote coastline of Admiralty Island looking for bears while also keeping watch for marine wildlife in the ocean waters. Windfall Harbor is even more remote and rugged than Pack Creek, as there are no designated structures from which to view wildlife once you get there. You are in true bear country and our guides have several “secret locations” to pull kayaks ashore for scenic breaks and bear viewing
