  • Paddle rafts are available for the more adventuresome.
  • Float down past the Mendenhall River, you will be treated to spectacular views of hanging glaciers, towering peaks, and glacial topography whilst encountering stretches of moderate rapids that add excitement to the trip.
  • Be provided an entertaining guide who will explain the natural phenomena at work in this scenic valley.
  • Once ashore, you will enjoy an Alaskan-style snack featuring smoked salmon, reindeer sausage, cheese, pilot bread, and apple cider.
  • Turn in your rafting gear and return to town by motorcoach.

Note: All participants are provided with rain gear, life jackets, and rubber boots. Tour operates in all weather conditions; warm clothing is recommended.
