Exit Glacier is a year-round attraction, with the warmer months being popular with hikers and winter being the perfect time for snowmobiling, dog sledding and cross-country skiing. To get to the glacier many people walk from the Nature Center, from which many trails begin. Trek to the Glacier View for a prime view of Exit Glacier pouring from the Harding Icefield, and continue on (weather permitting) to the Toe of the Glacier and/or Edge of the Glacier for an up-close encounter. Along the way, be on the lookout for wildlife like songbirds, mountain goats, black bears, brown bears and moose. Another option for visiting Exit Glacier is to drive via Seward Highway from Seward. Guided tours are also a worthwhile option, especially as knowledgeable guides can help educate you on the attraction.
