An Alaskan vacation wouldn’t be complete without exploring the marine and coastal wildlife by kayak. Our guests at the Ridgewood have several kayaking activities to choose from.
After a moderate hike to the shoreline of Grewingk Glacier Lake, take in the panoramic view of an ancient glacier carved into a mountain valley with towering peaks and alpine meadows - the flowers in this valley are particularly interesting. Load up the kayaks and paddle amongst the icebergs and the glacier up close and personal. Visit bird rookeries and glass for mountain goats and black bears. For this activity, bring layered clothing and a waterproof shell. Included in the cost of your stay.
After a moderate hike though a spruce forest and past ancient cottonwood trees, load up the kayaks and paddle through coves and drift the shoreline set in the midst of the towering peaks and hanging glaciers of the Kenai Peninsula Coast Mountain Range. These natural lakes host native rainbow trout. This tour combines a boat ride with hiking, kayaking and fishing. For this activity, bring layered clothing and a waterproof shell. Included in the cost of your stay.
Alaskan sea kayaking is an amazing experience and a chance to view the scenery and the wildlife in special way. Your guide will take you from cove to cove, interpreting the sights and answering your questions. All you need is your camera and your enthusiasm - everything else is provided. All experience levels are welcome, and this tour is great family fun. There are half-day and whole-day trips available. Please enquire about rates.
