Once near the shoreline, suit up with rain gear, life jackets, and rubber
boots. Each raft carries 8 to 12 people and is rowed by an experienced guide.
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.
