Travel Tip of the Week, #7

Looking for an awesome summer adventure? Wait until enough ice has melted (a safe bet is late July – August) and kayak to Johns Hopkins Inlet in Glacier Bay, Alaska. The paddling here can be intense, so make sure you know what you’re doing – even if you go with a guide, you should be a reasonably strong paddler. The views are amazing, and you’re likely to have the black sand beach to yourselves. Pitch a tent and stay a night or two. If you’re lucky, you’ll see dozens or hundreds of seals floating on icebergs while listening to the glaciers calve and enjoying short walks on and above the black sand beach. The spot is truly magical.
