Take a float plane ride across Kachemak Bay and land in Grewengk Lake where a Naturalist will get your kayak and gear ready to paddle around the icebergs. Learn the history of earthquakes and see for yourself the damage from years ago in Kachemake Bay State Park. Hike back to the bay for a water taxi ride back to Homer Harbor..if your lucky and it's berry season pick on your way. Salmon berries rule!

This whole area is just beautiful. The bay, the hikes, the glaciers. So many pictures were taken. We liked Homer the best . We started at Anchorage and traveled south and hit all the cities. The view (when clear) as you come around the corner into Homer is the best.

We took a water taxi across Kachemak Bay to the trail head for the Glacier Lake Trail. Although the day was cloudy we were lucky that it did not rain. The trail is easy with just minimal elevation gain. After about 3 miles we reached the lake with great views of the Grewingk Glacier across the lake and many icebergs floating on the lake. After eating lunch on the beach we headed back to take the Saddle trail down to our water taxi pick-up point. The Saddle Trail has much more elevation change, initially climbing to a summit and then a steep descent down to the water. It could be a bit dangerous if it was raining as I am guessing there trail would get slippery on the steep descent. The trail ended in a beautiful bay where we were picked up for our return to Homer.

Other than breath taking, there are no words that can adequately describe the beauty of this area! Just.... WOW!

There are many guides and out fitters to handle newbies to experts. There is something for everyone here!

Take water taxi across the bay to Glacier spit. Lots of walks in variable terrain. Hike Glacier Trail, well worth it.
