4 - 6 Guests Per person

Visit remote Day Harbor and Ellsworth Glacier

A valley glacier pouring into a large lagoon, Ellsworth Glacier was once the longest glacier flowing from the Sargent Icefield.

Join us on a private wildlife boat tour from Seward into the remote fjord, where a transformation occurs. The stillness and sheer forces of nature are palpable. We’ll be dropped off on a beach in Day Harbor, Seward, Alaska, where our hike begins.

As we weave through different forest types, all evidence of the recent glacial past, we’ll learn about how geology shapes the flora and fauna here. But it’s not just the history of this place, it’s all happening in real-time – now. When we step out of the tranquil woods onto the shore of Ellsworth’s glacial lagoon, you’ll be sure to feel the humbling power of nature, and how much momentum it has as we enter exposed waters.
