      ... but the place is amazing. It is built on native land in the shadows of the Pedersen Glacier. There is no one else around for miles. Our cabin overlooks the lagoon and we are surrounded by stunning scenery. Despite the rain we gear up and go out in large canoes for a closer look at the wildlife. At one point we are surrounded by seals and sea otters (none of them are too keen on having their photos taken though!!) A truly magical ...

      ... was so exciting to watch! We probably watched the first 50 or 60 men finish, including a friend of hers that was in the race. It's so exciting to watch that it made us excited for our race in two weeks in anchorage! We ate some more street food and then it was time for a nap!

The majesty of the surrounding area was stunning. There are wonderful photo opportunities around every corner. Upon arrival at the lodge we met some of the ...

      Another early start, a struggle to get out of bed this morning. We took a taxi to the station where we booked our bags all the way onto the ship...We had a coffee while we waited for the 'all aboard' call. The train was luxury it self. We were in the gold class car and the glass roof gave us an amazing view.. We saw a only a few animals, a moose a porcupine and a few little chicks. Or guides Mackenzie and Rachel were young high school ...

      The Land Tour Begins - With More Time At Sea!

      A travel blog entry by kiwikaren on Aug 25, 2013

      ... We peered through the trees and caught a glimpse of the large pens and some of the dogs. From the clanging of bowls, barking and howling I think it was dinner time!

      We returned to the lodge and had dinner at the on-site restaurant. Most meals are not included on our land tour. Our tour leader had warned that food would be expensive in Alaska and it was, so we just ordered a burger (which was huge) and decided to try to find a supermarket in Seward in the ...
