Amid a serene remote wilderness, gaze upon an unspoiled natural world of wonder as you weave your way down the near-frozen waterway. Observe nature raw and beautiful, where immense rock formations, steep valleys and rushing waterfalls open up to frigid sapphire water and glowing blue ice adrift in every direction. At the head of the mighty fjord, the crown jewel beckons: the icy tidewater mass known as Dawes Glacier.
The Dawes Glacier
At over 600 feet tall and a mile wide, Dawes Glacier is a gigantic remnant of an even larger ice block that fashioned Endicott Arm fjord centuries ago. Comprised of 2 enormous glaciers and united by a medial moraine at its center, it’s easy to overlook the fact that the glacier hides 250 feet of ice below the surface of the water. Stand in awe at this mighty beauty and be on the lookout for the process known as calving, where giant chunks of ice break off and spill into the seawater below without warning.
Offering a glimpse into the past, the Dawes Glacier is a reminder of a time long gone, when ice the size of continents swallowed up whole countries during the Ice Ages of the past.
