A Glacial Lake Inflatable Kayak Tour is the perfect way to get on the water, soak in the serenity, and enjoy some of the finest views that the Kennicott Valley has to offer. Your expert guide will provide expert paddling instruction while also entertaining you on a special interpretive tour of one of the newest geographical features of our beautiful valley. Take a walk on the glaciers rocky surface, listen to the glacier quietly cracking and tumbling while you scout for bears and other wildlife along the shore and even sometimes on the ICE!
Our Glacier Kayak Tour designed for folks wanting to get out and experience the beauty of the Kennicott Valley in a safe and informative way. Your guide is versed in Glaciology and we all love to talk about our “giant freezer” that ends abruptly just outside of town. We’ll also spend time talking about the historic Kennecott Mines, the myriad 6,000 foot + mountains, the unbelievable mile high Stairway Ice Fall, and the over 16,000 foot Mount Blackburn among many other topics that can make you feel as if you are paddling your “SUP” in a fine art painting.
Beginner – Age 8+
For the extra adventurous sort, there are even some rapids that flow directly along the glacier that you can test your paddling abilities on or just relax and take it all in!
