We just returned from 12 days in Alaska visiting the Kenai Peninsula and Denali National Park and this place was my absolute favorite. I hesitated to book it because of the price but it was worth every dollar. We stayed for two nights and hated to leave. It all started with a 4 hour boat ride to our destination with many stops on the way looking at a variety of wildlife and glaciers which took the place of booking a separate wildlife and glacier cruise. The cabins were tucked away amongst the trees with a view of the lagoon and the lodge looked out over the Pedersen Glacier. The setting was just stunning. We canoed to the upper lagoon which wowed us with the beautiful ice formations in the water. We kayaked to the Aialik Glacier for an all day adventure eating lunch next to the Glacier as it was calving. It should be noted that we are not experienced kayakers but had great direction from our guide with no problems. We canoed and hiked to the Pedersen Glacier for some more fantastic scenery. The guides were all very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. In addition, if you are looking for peace and quiet--this is the quietest place I have ever been. The other plus was the food. It was outstanding. My husband is a picky eater and he was eating things I have never seen him eat before. So my advice to anyone thinking about booking this place is don't hesitate to do it. With all the activities that we did , the great food and accommodations and the beautiful setting I believe it is a great value for your money and an experience that you will never forget.
