Overview
Trade the nosebleed section for front row seats on a canoe tour around Mendenhall Glacier. Scattered viewpoints of the glacier only offer so much. With the help of your small group and guide, you can paddle your way to a much better vantage point. Tranquil waters make the aquatic adventure ideal if it's your first time in a canoe or you want to capture the exceptional angles on your camera.

They had all the equipment already. All you need to do is row a boat which, coupled with other people, is quite easy. They helped find one of a kind glacier spots and we're very careful.

A great review of everything we aim to offer! Informative guides, amazing scenery, quality equipment/snacks, but most importantly lots of jokes (mostly dad humor)! We're grateful that you chose to join us on the lake for a day of canoeing adventure.

My husband, daughter, daughter-in-law and I found this tour after the glacier one that Princess offered was filled. So glad we did! We were picked up from the ship and taken to the lake. I was a bit apprehensive about padding for such a long time on the lake to get to the
