You’ll then walk an easy 2.5 miles up to a gorgeous glacier lake, where Three Moose has an exclusive kayak outpost. Then it’s time to paddle! You’ll kayak around the icebergs and up to a viewing spot overlooking Grewingk Glacier, where you’ll enjoy the lunch you’ve packed—you might even have the opportunity to touch an iceberg! After lunch, you’ll hike out and return to Homer by boat.

About Three Moose Kayak Adventures

Owner Jordan Hess took a vacation to Alaska 25 years ago, fell in love with it, and wanted to show others the same gorgeous backcountry on a unique adventure tour. When he hiked up to the glacier lake, he knew he had found his destination. Not only was it a beautiful area, but 20 years ago, this was the only place in Alaska to kayak on a glacier lake. Adding in some hiking allows for even more exploration. Jordan’s sons also couldn’t resist the allure of this area—they’re now guiding trips, too!
