Leconte Glacier

Baird Glacier

Stikine River & Leconte Glacier Tour

Tour duration: 45 minutes
Dates of operation: Year-round

Minutes away from Petersburg is one of the most powerful and beautiful sights in the world. The Stikine River ice field is 2900 square miles and extends 120 miles. Many glaciers spill out of this magnificent ice field, with three picturesque glaciers easily accessible from Petersburg. The Baird and Patterson Glacier both spill into the Thomas Bay area and terminate at a braided out wash plain.
To the south of these glaciers is arguably the most beautiful glacier in Southeast; the LeConte Glacier. The LeConte is the southernmost active tidewater glacier in the northern hemisphere. The face of this glacier breaks off into the 800+ foot deep LeConte Bay and produces massive icebergs with a resounding splash. These icebergs are home to a large population of Harbor Seals. Surrounding the Stikine Ice field are the impressive peaks of the Coastal Mountain Range, including the renowned Devil's Thumb. Contact Us
