Kenai Fjords National Park’s best-kept secret

This Remote Fjord folds into five tidewater glaciers and hosts stunning geological formations, calving glaciers, emerald green waters, and scattered waterfalls. Enjoy opportunities to view black bears, coastal birds, and a host of marine mammals.

Return to Geologic Antiquity

The Tidewater Glaciers in Northwestern are more vertical than the tidewater glaciers in Aialik. While Aialik is expansive and gorgeous as well, the glaciers are massive and slowly lope up valleys.  In Northwestern, the glaciers shoot straight up the cliff sides and to the Harding Icefield. Here you will find a moraine that was only created in the last 100 years from retreating glaciers, large scrapes and scars in the sides of the rocks from the weight of the ice, and a lone island colored pink from oxides minerals.

You disembark for two full days, or more if you choose, to explore the park, moving from place to place as our camping system is designed to fit within the kayaks – we are not confined to a base camp! Enjoy paddling, a little hiking, beach comping, or relax by a campfire with your guide and a cup of joe.

Customized Tours for Every Group

Our team of guides will prepare your meals and work to customize your trip to maximize your experience. Enjoy exploring, taking photos, hiking, or paddling all while following the rules and ethics established by the National Park. This area prescribes to Leave No Trace wilderness ethics, and we make every effort to do exactly that.  Kayak guides are trained in assisted rescue techniques, the areas of natural history, and have their wilderness first responder certification to keep you safe in this stunning backcountry environment.
