At the start of the Alaska season, we send a crew up to Patterson Lake to check on our kayaks left there over the winter. This is remote Alaska. These kayaks were helicoptered in to Patterson Lake in spring 2011, in time for our first Active Adventures on our expedition vessels. This is quite the excursion for our guests.
On our Inner Reaches Eastern Coves itinerary, guests have the opportunity to hike 5 miles roundtrip to remote Patterson Lake. There, kayaks are already there, ready to launch and continue the journey to the face of Patterson Glacier.
