KNIK GLACIER TOUR - 3 HOURS
Your adventure begins with a 4 mile cross country ride in our custom lifted 4x4 van and monster truck. We call this our “
Alaska Safari”. Keep your camera's ready as moose and other wildlife sightings are common. We travel 4 miles through the spectacular backcountry of Lake George National Natural Landmark. We will cross rivers, view salmon spawning areas, see beautiful fields of wildflowers and get your first views of the mighty Knik Glacier. You’re half way there. We arrive at the halfway point "Glacier Island" where the boats are waiting. Now, it’s time to jump in the boats and begin the 4 mile journey up river. You will experience the thrill of flying on the water in our fully enclosed airboat and extreme shallow Jet boat. We pass waterfalls, the occasional stray iceberg and keep an eye out for wildlife. As we approach the Knik Glacier you will feel the temperature begin to drop. You will be awestruck by the sheer size of the Knik Glacier. Get ready to "OOOH!" and "AAAH!" as your captain slows the boat and you find yourself floating among thousands of blue icebergs. You have arrived. This is the Alaska that you dreamed about. The ice takes on shades of blue that appear to be lit from within. We'll cruise around Icebergs for some great photo opportunities then pull ashore for a one hour visit to Glacier Camp. Here you can pull up a chair for a front row seat to one of nature's most impressive natural wonders. Enjoy a hot drink and a snack from the camp kitchen. Your guide will set up a spotting scope and search the surrounding mountains for wildlife. Watch Moose, Black Bear, Grizzly Bear, Dall Sheep and MT Goats in the nearby meadows. You can take a hike around the iceberg filled lake. If you’re a rock hound, you will love the areas geology as Knik Glacier has tumbled up some truly impressive gems.

Photographers always want to know the best time for lighting on the glacier. As the midnight sun swings north the sunset will be at the end of the Knik Valley, perfectly lighting up the Knik Glacier in the alpenglow of Alaska’s midnight sun. Evening is also the best time to spot wildlife on the hot summer days. This tour departs at 5:30 PM and returns at 8:30 PM daily, June 1st to Sept. 1st.
