  • Holgate Glacier was just breathtaking!! Probably the most incredibly gorgeous views I have ever seen. We took a 6 hour day trip cruise from Seward. So very worth the beautiful voyage to this magical place!
  • We took an overnight to the Public Use Cabin here - phenomenal! The cabin was clean, secure, and the scenery was absolutely breathtaking. For transportation, we used Joe Allen of Allens Alaska Adventures. We would absolutely hire him to take us out there (or adventure anywhere in the area) again! He was absolutely awesome. Consider going for a couple of nights and/or adding in a kayak trip (we did!). Enjoy.
  • We took the major marine tours to tour this glacier! What an absolute beauty!! So happy we did this tour. Alaskan glaciers are absolutely breathtaking for people who are outdoor nuts!
  • Holgate Glacier is another one of those many beautiful glaciers in Alaska. You'll most likely see Holgate Glacier while on a glacier cruise, but if you can take your time and enjoy the view from a kayak I bet you'll have a better experience.
  • We walked and shipped. When we were close to him something broke (guess it was us) Ok good fotos but we needn' t this. What we did not like was the captain who drove closer and closer 4 let Holgate broke more.
