— Tebay Lake Fly-In Kayaking —

The Details

Melissa was absolutely incredible. Skolai trip was 10 times better than Denali. Class act organization! Will definitely be back!

Erin and Tony S Hiking Fly-In Skolai Pass Hike

If you only have a few days to spend in Wrangell-St. Elias, but would still like to experience a bush plane flight, and remote backcountry adventure, then the Tebay Lake Fly-In Kayaking is the perfect fit!

Start your day off with a beautiful bush plane flight, viewing the tiny town of McCarthy from the air, as you bank and turn over its adjacent glaciers and rivers. Landing at a deep blue alpine lake, surrounded by rolling meadows of alpine tundra, you have the whole day to explore! You and your guide can inflate the kayaks, and begin your adventure by paddling through the turquoise waters, exploring the shoreline, or small islands that dot the lake’s surface. After a relaxing lunch (which you’ll provide) on the shores of the lake, you may decide to set off on foot, taking a casual hike to lovely rapids.

Great for families or travelers who are interested in both paddling and hiking, this fly-in option is a great way to explore the remoteness of Wrangell-St. Elias in one fun-filled day!

Highlights Include:

  • Paddling a pristine alpine lake
  • Impressive views of the Chugach Mountains
  • Exploring the remote Alaskan wilderness
  • Two bush plane flights in the same day!

To keep in accordance with recent Alaska State mandates, we are requiring advanced reservations for all of our activities at this time. While in the past we have prided ourselves on always having availability for walk-ins, we are hopeful that this required measure will help continue to curb the spread of the virus as the state begins to open back up. So if you’re planning on heading out to the Wrangells this summer, please make a reservation today! You can easily book online yourself by clicking the orange “Book This Trip” button on the left or give us a call and we’ll be happy to assist you!
