Tom W Backpacking Iceberg Lake Basecamp 2009

Despite it’s name, Iceberg Lake is no longer quite so full with icebergs. Until just a few years ago, it was a vast lake dammed by the side of the West Lobe of the Tana Glacier. But recently, the glacier has shifted and melted, and the lake drained, leaving a much smaller lake (but still beautiful and full of icebergs!) near the edge of the ice. A moderate day hike gives you fabulous views of the lake and glacier, and a hike in the opposite directions take you onto a smaller glacier for views towards the Bremner Valley.

The flight to Iceberg Lake is stunning, as you will cross the vast Chitina River Valley and fly deep into the Chugach Mountain Range. Once you land, you and your professional mountain guide can explore the lakebed, take pictures of bear tracks in the sand, or head for higher ground to enjoy sweeping panoramas of the Bagley Icefield and the hanging glaciers that descend into the valley from the surrounding peaks. You may also choose to head up-valley to explore the small alpine lakes found there and munch on wild blueberries. Keep your camera ready on the return flight. Dall sheep are often spotted high on the mountainsides and on a clear day the second highest peak in North America, 19,551 ft (5,959m) Mt. Logan is visible far to the east.
