It is a very remote Glacier. Stay at the Kenai Fjord and Glacier Lodge to complete the stunning visual experience. You will be taken care of royally and they have all kinds of activities ( canoeing, kayaking, hiking) that are all with guides.

The natural beauty and wildlife are breathtaking. We paddled a canoe across the lower lagoon and then hiked a mile to the upper Pederson Lagoon. We were able to view harbor seals from a distance and a wealth of sea life.

One of the best glaciers to get up close and personal with. Depending on the weather you can hike up close to the glacier and the guides all have wonderful stories to share.

From Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge, you'll take a canoe trip across Pederson Lake. Then it's a 30 minute hike to the face of the glacier. You'll see wildlife, and experience authentic Alaska back-country.
