Scenic cruising Holgate Glacier
Aialik Bay in the Kenai Fjords National Park offers Seabourn guests unusual proximity to a glacier. Holgate Glacier is an active, calving glacier that is advancing from the Harding Icefield and creating a mountain and tidewater face. Depending on the ice in the bay, this may afford the closest approach your ship can make to an Alaskan glacier. Your expedition team members will be on deck sharing insights into the natural surroundings, pointing out key features and offering views of any wildlife through their Swarovski binoculars. Bundle up for on-deck observation, since the huge river of ice creates a downdraft of cold air that makes a hat and gloves welcome, regardless of the other weather conditions.
