Nizina Glacier Hike & Kayak

Floating Icebergs & Trekking in Alaska

Located within a short bush plane flight of McCarthy, Alaska, the Nizina Glacier offers a spectacular setting for a remote, wilderness base-camping adventure. Surrounded by grand peaks, the massive ice flow of the Nizina Glacier will take your breath away, as it descends from the high snow fields surrounding 13,845 ft (4,219m) Regal Mountain. Views of the glacier capped peaks up the valley will captivate you, and walking on this impressive glacier is the experience of a lifetime.

At the toe of the glacier, an iceberg-filled lake forms the headwaters of the mighty Nizina River. Pleasant walking along the edge of the lake makes this a great hiking adventure for families and people of all ages and abilities. We can even bring inflatable kayaks and explore the 'bergs by boat as well! Day hiking opportunities abound and wildlife sightings are not unusual.
