An unparalleled view of the magnificent Mendenhall Glacier! Paddle through a glacial environment, an immense river of ice with icebergs dotting your path and waterfalls raging from the towering peaks.

Guided Mendenhall Glacier Lake Paddle, Juneau Alaska

Great for adventurers of all experience levels and our guide staff will enhance the natural beauty of the area with personal stories and naturalist interpretations.

We will outfit you with required gear and, after a safety briefing you’ll point your bows toward the awe-inspiring glacier and paddle on the silt-rich lake that glows with icebergs of all shapes and sizes beneath the grand peaks of the Coastal Mountain Range.

Don’t forget to scan the shorelines, mountains, and sky around you for possible wildlife sightings – mountain goats, black bear, porcupine, river otter, beaver, eagles, arctic terns, gulls, and more inhabit this area!
