Hiking To Grewingk Glacier

Looking for an adventure local to Bear Paw Adventure? Hiking to Grewingk Glacier is a favorite for both locals and visitors alike and suitable for all skill levels. This hike is across Kachemak Bay in Halibut Cove. Launching from the Homer harbor, you'll get dropped off at Glacier Spit trailhead for a beautiful three mile hike to Grewingk Glacier Lake. The view from the lake features majestic mountains, icebergs floating in the lake, and the glacier itself. If you're brave enough you can swim in the clean glacier water and climb aboard one of the icebergs. If you're lucky you'll hear the loud cracking of the glacier calving. This area is open to camping if you're looking for an overnight adventure with a view. Hike back along Saddle Trail, a short one mile hike back to your water taxi. This area is frequented by bears, so make sure you have your bear spray with you just in case. We highly recommend adding this hike to your Alaskan adventure!
