northwestern fjord Multi-Day Kayak Exploration
Considered by many the jewel of Alaska's Kenai Fjords National Park, Northwestern Fjords is a sea kayaking paradise. Calving tidewater glaciers, icebergs, abundant marine life, stark granite walls, quiet lagoons and lush valleys await. Unlike any other area along this coast, Northwestern Fjord was covered by glaciers less than 100 years ago. This newly revealed landscape is in the early stages of post-glacial revegetation. Glacially scarred granite walls create an austere beauty providing a unique glimpse back in geological time. This Alaskan adventure tour creates lasting lifetime impressions. We use stable and efficient tandem (two-person) kayaks allowing both novices and aspiring experts to kayak comfortably. Available in three, four and five-day adventures.
Our longer trips focus on getting acquainted with the nooks and crannies of Northwestern Fjord. Expect a mix of exploring, beach walking and paddling. We'll leave some time for photography, wildlife watching and contemplation. Rarely do people get a chance to experience true wilderness. One of the major advantages of having an extra day or two is the increased time to absorb this unique place.
