We signed up for the kayak trip to the face of the Columbia Glacier.  Anadyr provided everything except lunch – they had raingear, dry bags, boots, poagies, even fleece layers if you needed it.  The equipment and the boat ride to where we launched kayaks...More

First, you won't see the Columbia glaciers. You can only see it from a very very far distance, which is not comparable with matanuska or worthington glaciers AT ALL! Second, expecting to see many wild animals? Forget it. We only see a few of sea...More
