Full-Day Glacier Kayaking and Hiking - our most popular trip!
This 7-8 hour tour is perfect for those that enjoy active, outdoor experiences. The tour starts in Homer, Alaska with a scenic 30-minute boat cruise to Kachemak Bay State Park, accessible only by boat. Enjoy a picturesque hike through 3 distinct ecosystems; the marine environment, coastal forest, and glacial moraine. The hike is informative as well; your guide shares the history, the wildlife, and geology of this unique area. In the glacier valley, guests are awed by the views of the immense glacier dropping into the lake. We continue our journey by kayak with sounds of moving ice filling the valley as we paddle our stable kayaks past icebergs of all sizes.

Occasional sightings of moose, mountain goat, and black bear add to the adventure! After lunch, hike out and return to Homer by boat.
