Best Seasons

In addition to being a great spot for hiking and kayaking, we’re one of the few places in the world to receive simultaneous visits from whales, seabirds, and icebergs. As the whales and birds migrate north and the icebergs sail south, there’s a chance to experience all three of these wonderful sights in one trip. Like so much in nature, there are many factors that vary from year to year, but with luck you’ll witness this exciting spectacle.

Best Seasons:

Whale Watching: June – August 
Birdwatching: May – October
Iceberg Viewing: April – August 
Walking & Hiking: May – October
Kayaking: May – October

Friendly Reminder: Make sure you book your car rental and accommodations in advance.
