We visited this on the Kenai Fjords Boat Tour, but you can actually walk on it on one of the helicopter tours.

We were on a boat cruise so we couldn't get too close but the view we had was spectacular. There was a sand bar that prevented the boat from getting closer but we could see some icebergs in the lake beyond.

Great time, beautiful kayaking, Corey was a good guide. Bumpy jet boat ride to the lake, but it was worth it.

Kayaked to Bear Glacier, amazing site, could sit there all day and listen to the glacier caving! The seals are so cute on the ice and pop up out the water to visit you.

This was probably my favorite glacier I saw on the Major Marine Tours Northwestern Glacier cruise. It was really interesting to see it, and it has a cute story regarding a former president.
