Explore Glacier Lake by Foot & by Packraft

Take a scenic 30 minute boat ride to Saddle Trailhead. Hike up the glacial moraine for about an hour to Glacier Lake. Gear up here with inflatable pack-rafts, receive shoreside instruction and paddle into the glacial landscape. We’ll stop at the edge of the lake for lunch and then paddle back to the trailhead. A lovely 50 minute hike through the old growth forest and past views of Halibut Cove takes you to the water taxi at the Saddle Trailhead and back to Homer.
