If you are staying at kenai fjords glacier lodge , this a must do trek. It is of moderate difficulty level, but with an able guide you can manage easily. The view is nothing short of spectacular. You can enjoy a relaxing time at the mouth of the glacier. This is a half day trek.

This was part of a half day excursion from the Glacier Lodge. You have to canoe across the lagoon and then hike through the forest to reach the glacier. When you do it is really something to see parts of it calve and ice bergs floating all around.

It is a very remote Glacier. Stay at the Kenai Fjord and Glacier Lodge to complete the stunning visual experience. You will be taken care of royally and they have all kinds of activities ( canoeing, kayaking, hiking) that are all with guides.

Nine of us set off in a "War canoe" and really made excellent speed across the lower lake. From the other side we could see a Black Bear strolling along the shoreline but it had vanished by the time we made landing. The journey by foot to the glacier took about forty minutes and was easy going and in no... More

Best possible if you stay in the Glacier lodge. you canoe across the lodge and then trek through a an uphill, bushy track.. which is not marked and would be difficult to figure without a guide. The half day trek takes you right upto the mouth of the glacier.. which ends in a large kettle pond, created by the retreating... More

We had a beautiful view of the glacier from our cabin porch with two rocking chairs, as well as the dining room and the sitting area in front of the main lodge.I would go out and just sit on the rocker and gaze at the Pedersen lower...

The natural beauty and wildlife are breathtaking. We paddled a canoe across the lower lagoon and then hiked a mile to the upper Pederson Lagoon. We were able to view harbor seals from a distance and a wealth of sea life.

This stay ended out Alaskan Wildland Adventure tour. We had a stunning view from our cabin and hiked to the upper lagoon. It truly is an incredible thing to see for yourself. I highly recommend it.

This is the glacier you see from the cabins at the Glacier Fjords Lodge. We approached the glacier in the upper lagoon by long canoe weaving between the stationery and floating blocks of ice. The view was mesmerizing and when the glacier actually calved a block of ice it was astonishing. This being a short paddle from the Lodge I... More

One of the best glaciers to get up close and personal with. Depending on the weather you can hike up close to the glacier and the guides all have wonderful stories to share.
