Kayak and Hike to Deep Blue, Glacially Carved Grant Lake, Alaska

Moose Pass Adventures

Select Option


Kayak on TWO amazing glacial lakes! This adventure begins with a paddle across Trail Lake in Historic Moose Pass. Our guides bring this small Alaskan town’s history to life. The stories of locals like Alaska Nellie, the ghost of gold miner Al and the famed Iditarod Trail provide plenty to ponder as you paddle along the shores of Trail Lake. After a short paddle south, glide to shore for a hike along a section of the Iditarod National Historic Trail as we head up and over the ridge to the stunning, emerald waters of Grant Lake. While moderately rated in regard to the terrain, there's no denying we're in wild Alaska along this route due to the rapid growth of the vegetation in the spring and summer along the trail. The feelings while staring out across Grant Lake are hard to describe and the views are breathtaking. We'll take some time to have lunch here, then we'll set out on kayaks once again to experience this area from the water before hiking back down the trail toward Moose Pass.

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Iditarod National Historic Trail, AK

We love sharing our knowledge about Alaska. From it's amazing human history to it's rugged geologic past. Trail Lake is located on the Historic Iditarod Trail and we'll even travel under the Alaskan Railroad.
Moose Pass and Trail Lake are located right next to the Iditarod National historic Trail. As a matter of fact, when we can, we love to participate on the trail crew to help restore the original trail for hikers and historians to enjoy. It's a dream of ours to one day see this entire trail hikeable from Seward North, just like when it all started! We've got lots of stories to share about this amazing, important part of Alaskan history.

Stop At: Moose Pass, Moose Pass, Alaska

This little town has quite the storied past. With one of the oldest schools and longest running libraries on the Kenai Peninsula, a grocery store that was moved across town on logs and a lodge and restaurant that started out as the remote Jockey Club, but once had black lights and a disco ball inside. Well, let's just say, there's plenty of things, people and places to talk about. We can't wait.

Duration: 7 hours

Stop At: Trail Lake, AK

After our general orientation and kayak instruction, we'll spend some time kayaking across glacially fed Trail Lake. Trail Lake has Rainbow Trout, Lake Trout and other fish in it's waters and empties into Kenai Lake, which allows for salmon to find their way up through as well! There are often bears or moose along the shores and plenty of Bald Eagles in the area as well.

Duration: 1 hour
