Water & Ice: 2 day package

Package Description

If you are looking for two days of adventures in the Wrangell St Elias National Park that are perfectly tailored to your pace, look no further.  This package combines our two most exciting local adventures giving you the opportunity to experience both the wonders of the glacier, as well as the awe inspiring iceberg filled lake below it.

As with our other packages, this trip is comes with a private guide for both of the days, so we will tweak each day to meet your needs and pace, rather than asking you to tweak your interests and pace to meet our needs.  You will have two full days with your guide to make the most of any glacier and packraft trip that we offer for one great price.

For the time on the glacier, choose from a Full Day Glacier Hike, an Ice Explorer Climb and Hike, a Full Day Ice Climb, or a Donoho Lakes Hike.

The day exploring the Kennicott glacier lake involves paddling around in your own packraft using a kayak style paddle.  Because these boats are so light weight and portable, we start our day off with a short hike and all of our paddling gear (boat, drysuit, PFD, and paddle) in our backpacks.  For this day of water-based exploration, you can choose from a Full Day Packrafting Trip, or if you have previous whitewater kayaking or packrafting experience, we can consider one of our more advanced Local River’s Trips.

Because all of our package trips are private, feel free to speak with us about swapping out one of these days with one of our alpine mine hikes if you are not interested in either the glacier or the packrafting.

You will have the same guide(s) for both days in order to make sure you have the most personalized experience possible.  Each day, your guide will meet you at your lodging and bring you back.  These packages also include the premium service of a lunch for both days (not included on our standard day trips), and the option for KWG to provide local ground transportation around the area if you would like to see another part of the area that is before or after your trip.
