WHAT YOU VISIT

Wilderness Hike
Explore the outback regions of the Tongass National Forest on a guided hike that cuts through a skyward canopy that shelters shorter evergreen trees, lush shrubbery and indigenous plant life. Home to an abundance of wildlife such as Sitka black-tailed deer, bald eagles and brown bears, this remote locale is on private, Native Alaskan land reached by abandoned logging roads.

Kayak Adventure
After a safety briefing and getting oufitted with gear, you'll be assigned a standard single-person kayak (this tour is designed for experienced kayakers). With your guide in the lead, you'll paddle to beautiful Pitt Island and around the Hoonah waterfront. Along the way, your knowledgeable guide will share the history and culture of the Tlingit and the authentic Alaskan village of Hoonah.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
Take in the abundant wildlife that calls Icy Strait Point home. While hiking through the forest, you may see brown bears, Sitka black tailed deer, eagles, and even humpback whales. And while paddling the mirror-calm waters you may witness humpback whales breaching, sea lions and porpoises playfully frolicking in the cold waters, bald eagles and other seabirds.

REFRESHMENTS
Bottled water will be supplied during this exhilarating adventure.

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
Located near Glacier Bay and the Native settlement of Hoonah, Icy Strait Point is situated in an old-growth spruce and hemlock rainforest, home to an incredibly diverse wildlife population.
