  • One of the largest forests in the world. A classic temperate rain forest so come prepared, it rains a lot! Stunningly beautiful.  more »
  • Accompanied by a guide led us to make a tour of about 6 km. through the forest, this forest is immense reaches an area that goes into Canada and several states of the United States, everything is lush and huge, large cedars rise majestic, all covered by a thick c Moss and lichens apa, water runs everywhere and salmon jump to climb rivers. We didn't get any bears, but the guides wear repellent spray if that's the case. Highly recommended and the road is suitable for walking smoothly even with children

  • Walked the trail at mosquito cove with 8 kids 3yrs to 8yrs. Beautiful little cove and kids enjoyed throwing rock in. Trail was nicely kept and easy enough for most abilities. Beautiful mossy trees and tons of blueberries and red huckleberries.
  • I really don't know how I would describe it. Breathtaking doesn't do it justice. Hubbard Glacier was spectacular also! Alaska is just majestic!
