Nature photographers will relish the opportunity to capture the magnificent natural surroundings of Icy Strait Point from two different angles on this short but stunning adventure. Ride the state-of-the-art SkyGlider Mountaintop Gondola from the base of Icy Strait Point, ascending over 1,500 feet to the top of Hoonah Mountain. Take in the 360-degree views and the majestic vistas of Glacier Bay. Disembark and hop onto an open-air guided tram ride for a relaxed and informative six-mile, round-trip route through old-growth forest. Admire the Sitka spruce, western hemlock, and colorful wildflowers and their picture-perfect reflection in a glassine mountain lake. Learn about the ecological and cultural significance of the forest's flora and fauna, the history of the island's Tlingit people, and their ties to this rich land. Focus your lens on such highlights as Spasski Valley, the snow-capped mountains surrounding Port Frederick, and the city of Hoonah. Return to port after this lovely day.
