Know Before You Book


Accommodations
The national park accommodations on this trip provide great access to the top activities in the area. However, they are simpler compared to what we usually consider comfortable lodging-the rooms being more basic. Some buildings date back to the early 1900s and have been minimally renovated to follow park regulations. Overall, the service might feel slower and meal quality and selection much more limited compared to other MT Sobek trips. Keep in mind that internet and cell phone service are very limited throughout the parks.

FAQs


Who will meet me on arrival?

An awesome MT Sobek guide will meet you at the airport in Gustavus and transfer with you to the evening's accommodations within Glacier Bay National Park, only 8 miles down the road!

Is it easy to make arrangements for additional nights?

Super easy. We recommend extending your stay at the Lodge at Glacier Bay National Park or in Juneau at the Four Points Sheraton.

What wildlife do you typically see?

There are possibilities to see humpback and orca whales, porpoises, sea lions, bald eagles, puffins, moose and bears. Each new season brings a wide variety of mammals and bird species on any given day.

Will it rain while I'm in Alaska?

The weather in Alaska is quite variable, so please expect that rain may fall every day. A good sturdy raincoat is recommended.

How intense is the helicopter ride and what does it entail?

You will be in a safe and stable helicopter flown by a crew of very experienced pilots. The helicopter ride will be a quick 15 minutes from the airport to the glacier landing, with touring on the way back.

What is the minimum age for this trip?
The standard minimum age for this trip is 18, but check out our family friendly departures and private trip options for groups with younger guests.
