We were on a Princess Cruise and went to visit Misty Fjords. Absolutely gorgeous!!! The weather was beautiful and we had great visibility. A few in our group did a helicopter tour and others just stayed on the boat. Definitely worth getting up early to see the views!

Very beautiful. It is rainy usually, so plan accordingly. Dress in layers, as it does warm up even though it rains, as it is humid.

It is breathtakingly beautiful. It had rained that morning so there were a lot of waterfalls. We went by float plane so to see all of the Misty Fjords in it's beauty. Alaska, you are beautiful.

On a 12 day cruise in Alaska this was the stand out tour of the entire trip. We took a float plane which was piloted by an extremely knowledgeable guide who took us over the snow capped mountains and landed on a fjord which was a true wilderness area. We alighted onto a pontoon where the silence was deafening. The... More

A special charter with Allen Marine...what an incredible day! Misty was stunning in all its glory and we went all the way back in the fjord! Take their tour! Absolutely nothing should stop you except if you are going to kayak in Ketchikan...

If you have the opportunity to see the Misty Fjords either by boat or by Seaplane, do it! Just an amazing area of tranquility and beauty.

Loved this part of my trip. Even with clouds, we experienced the serenity of this beautiful place. We saw it via float plane, but a boat trip would also be lovely.
