We visited this wonderful lodge as part of our 2 week long tour of Alaska. The whole experience starting from the boat trip out of seward was brilliant. We were lucky to arrive when the sun was shining and it showed the beauty of the area in all it's glory.
The staff were all very welcoming and skilled in their various roles. The accomodation is very comfortable, all cabins have a view over the lagoon and the glacier. Best bit is there are no tv's, no mobile phone reception, you are truly cut off from the rest of the world!
We went on several of the canoeing trips whilst we were there - have to recommend canoeing up to the upper lagoon and going through the ice.
We were also lucky enough to see a number of black bears roaming around on the shoreline. Also during the boat trip we saw numerous different wildlife including killer whales, humpback whales and sea otters. From start to finish it was a wonderful experience and one which we didnt want to end. Definately on our list of places to revist if we get the chance!
