Northwestern Fjord offers pristine, world class sea kayaking and camping that has unmatched beauty with its many glaciers and protected waters located near Seward, Alaska!
If you are experienced with back country camping and have your own outdoor gear, including tent, pad, sleeping bag, rain boots, rain gear, cooking gear, food/water, and need a guide to assist you with local knowledge, interpretation, and safety this option might be for you. We normally do not base camp on our trips and as part of the trip you will be required to follow the paddle plan that is determined at your mandatory pre-trip meeting the day prior to departure at 7pm. Recommended: 4 season tent, synthetic non-cotton clothing, water bladder filter, small backpack stove, 0 degree sleeping bag (synthetic & stuffable in a water proof sack), ground pad (to roll up to minimal size), dry bags 10-liter size, and great rain gear. Trips are 4 people-based and if you have fewer than 4 members please call us and discuss. We do mix fully guided and guide assisted groups to bring down costs for our trips.
Space for packing your gear is very limited in your kayak, pack light, oversized items just will not allow for all of your gear to fit inside your kayak.
