Holgate Glacier is a phenomenal experience, even for the most experienced traveler..It is simply magnificient in its beauty and awesome to experience how small we people really are. It is a plus if you see if calve..but even if you don't, the blue color and the magnificence of being in the presence of a glacier of this magnitude will be impressive enough. I love the icebergs floating by our boat (Coastal Explorer) and the crew were kind enough to scoop up a small iceberg for us to touch and photograph up close and personal. I highly recommend this experience! Like many experiences in Alaska, it is different each time we go, but always magnificent!
