Knik Glacier Airboat Adventure
You will travel four miles by 4x4 vehicle and then four miles in an airboat up the Knik River, passing the occasional iceberg, waterfalls and some of Alaska's most spectacular scenery. Once in the boat, you navigate around the icebergs keeping a safe distance before you get up close to Knik Glacier. This 25-mile river of ice is over 5 miles wide and hundreds of feet thick. You will pull ashore for a 1-hour visit to Glacier Camp, where you can listen to "white thunder" as icebergs the size of 5 story buildings may tumble into the lake. Your Alaskan guide knows where to look for wildlife; black bear, moose, Dall sheep, and eagles have been spotted in the area. Hot drinks are served from the camp kitchen. Afterwards, return by airboat.
