Land at the end of glacier lake filled with icebergs from nearby Nizina Glacier. The views from the lakeshore are outstanding and there is a public use cabin tucked into the wood about a half a mile from the airstrip. This area offers casual hikes along the lakeshore and gravel bars along the Nizina River as well as routes up Nizina Mountain to alpine areas above treeline. This spot has it all; glaciers, rivers, mountains and a snug cabin in pretty setting.
I hesitated to book the trip as it was a sizable expenditure for my family. I have to say, the trip to McCarthy – Kennicott was excellent and I will be recommending your company to all who will listen. Your pilots are first rate and your staff in McCarthy worked hard to ensure that all of us enjoyed ourselves..
