scenic glacier tours
1. Guaranteed Departures (Expand)
We run our trips everyday, rain or shine! The only reason Pangaea would ever cancel a tour would be due to severe weather in the Sound. We cannot control Mother Nature! While cancellations due to weather is rare, it can certainly happen. We are happy to accommodate any travelers who have had their previous plans change at the last minute. Call us to see what trips we have available, I bet we can help save your vacation.
2. Fresh Food Prepared by Caring Cooks! (Expand)
Our guides put in a full day of work just to prepare the meals for an extended tour. All of our guides have a passion for healthy, hearty food with a zesty flare! We serve fresh vegetables, fish, and meats when ever possible (this is Alaska!). Typical breakfasts would be oatmeal pancakes, or smoked Gouda cheese scrambles and cereals. Lunches of grilled vegetable sandwiches, garden burritos, or cold cuts; and there are always snack plates of smoked salmon, fine cheeses, fruit, and dips. Dinners are the highlight with fresh salmon or halibut, grilled chicken, vegetable risotto, salads, or Thai cuisine.

Written Reviews in Top Travel Guides:

Frommers Alaska:

Day trips to Shoup or Columbia glaciers get you into more of the beautiful, remote country that makes Prince William Sound so exceptional. Pangaea Adventures (tel. 800/660-9637 or 907/835-8442; www.alaskasummer.com) offers guided sea kayaking from Valdez, or rentals for experienced paddlers (for whom the Sound is a paradise). They also offer multiday guided camping trips deeper into the Sound, or, for those who prefer a bed, lodge and "mother ship" expeditions, wherein clients paddle by day and stay on board or in a lodge at night. Pangaea offers many other services as well: water taxi and kayak drop-off, ice climbing and glacier hiking, river rafting, and even trips that combine these activities in the Sound and Wrangell-St. Elias National Park. Check out the website.
