Glacier Bay National Park is a magical place unlike any other on earth. Glacier Bay is remote wilderness at its best, and Lifeschool has your front row ticket to the adventure.
Covering 3.3 million acres of snowy, rugged mountains, dynamic glaciers, temperate rainforests, wild coastlines, and glacier-formed fjords, Glacier Bay National Park is a highlight of Alaska's Inside Passage. It is part of a 25-million acre World Heritage Site, one of the worlds largest international protected areas. From summit to sea, Glacier Bay offers limitless opportunities for one-of-a-kind adventure and inspiration.
On this action packed kayaking tour we will camp on secluded beaches, cook delicious meals, fish for salmon and stretch our sea-legs with lots of games and short hikes. Warm up at night with cozy campfires and star gaze tucked inside your sleeping bag.
Spend a week paddling up the secluded East Arm of Glacier Bay National Park. YouŽll experience first-hand the complete vegetation and geological
transition that accompanies glacial retreat. Along the way, you may see black and brown bears, seals, sea lions, wolves, moose, and an array of waterfowl as well as puffins, kittiwakes, and bald eagles. You can take a day hike up a rocky ridge to discover great views of the mountains, bay, and glaciers.
View McBride and Muir Glaciers from the best view in the park . . . the seat of your kayak! Paddle among giant slabs of shimmery blue ice that have calved from the sides of the glaciers. You can't find a better place to learn or refine your paddling skills. The views in Alaska are the only rewards you need.
And, you can top off this magical adventure by celebrating the 4th of July Alaskan style with fun races, contests, costume parades, and a very unique light show. Join us for this once in a lifetime adventure in Glacier Bay.
