Leconte Glacier Kayak Route




The trail begins at Petersburg, crosses Frederick Sound and passes by the Stikine River delta, an area known for its excellent birding opportunities. It takes 1.5 days to reach the fjord, which is 12 miles long. The water is full of ice in this area, sometimes blocking passage, but the glacier is often approachable. Sheer fjord walls, harbor seals and waterfalls add to the beauty and interest of the area.
