On this ATV excursion of a lifetime, you'll travel through the narrow passage of the world's second largest fjord system, the Lynn Canal! The hour-long boat ride to the Davidson Glacier includes a well-trained and informed naturalist who will point out in detail the stunning views and facts of the fjord as you cruise over the passage. If you're lucky you may even have a chance to spot local wildlife including majestic whales, stout sea lions, distinguished bald eagles and rugged mountain goats.
Once docked at Glacier Point you will be greeted and fitted by our personable and safety-oriented guides. After you're geared up and ready to go, you'll hop into one of our four-seater ATVs. Before you know it, you'll be cruising through miles of jaw dropping forest with a few stops to kick back, grab a snack, and take in the unmatched landscape of the Alaskan wilderness all with the Davidson Glacier as the backdrop. You can't get this experience anywhere else!
After you're done tearing up the trail you'll arrive back at camp to relax with a nice coffee or hot chocolate. Afterwards, you'll have one last opportunity to say goodbye to our picturesque glacier point area before heading back to Skagway with your captain and crew. But that doesn't mean the fun is over, who knows what wildlife you'll encounter on the return trip!
