Glacier trek

Fantastic experience! We loved the canoe paddle and glacier trek. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable.
Great experience, some minor tweeks to improve.

This was a good day and good opportunity to explore the glacier. However, I expected this to be quite physical and the only activity that was really strenuous was paddling the canoe with 6 people that had never canoed! In addition, our group size was 11, which was too much waiting around once everyone went up to take pictures, etc. Overall, I would do it again - but with some adjustments this could be the perfect day out! Would be better with smaller groups and paired by experience.
Fun and awesome experience

Mel & El were awesome. They were always excited, passionate and eager to help and guide us. You made it special. Thank you.
Amazing Experience!

The ice caves were not open when we were there but the rest of the trip was amazing! We had a beautiful day with no rain to paddle in which gave us the fastest time across the lake, saw crevices and glacial rivers, we even saw an Eagle pluck a baby Seagull off the bluffs of the lake. It was spectacular! Thanks to Whisper and Jacque, it was a great time!

Canoe ride was great and the ability to walk on the glacier was fabulous. Being able to walk and actually see the conduits were spectacular. Pictures do not do the blue ice justice.

This canoe and glacier trek was the highlight of my Alaska trip The guide was careful and knowledgeable and lots of fun. After a beautiful canoe trip to the glacier 7 paddlers in one canoe which made to easy to paddle We went through an ice tunnel up to the glacier Equipment was provided and we climbed all over the ice The contours and blues colors in the ice were stunning. This trip is worth every penny!!!

We did this tour in May 2017, it was great! To me and my husband it has been one of the best experiences in our life. Paddling thru the lake, and then arriving to the glacier to get inside of the caves, to then go hiking on top of the glacier was amazing!!!!!! Every part of the tour was worth the effort to get to one of the most beautiful places ever! the scenery was breathless, it is unbelievable how beautiful it is! In addition to that our guides were great, we felt very lucky to had them assigned to our tour, they were very experienced and knowledgeable. Elliott Sofhauser was the main guide and he was very smart and made us feel very confident about safety, he along with Sarah Galvin were explaining us geographical information about the glacier that was very valuable . Then, the company who provided the tour is very well organized and had everything pretty well arranged, in terms of equipment, safety, transportation, snacks, everything was very perfectly planned. Another great thing was safety, we felt absolutely secure with the guides, they were very qualified and assessed the risks all the time.

Our family of 5 - children ages 11, 13 and 15 - had a wonderful time with Adam! The canoe trip was beautiful, the trek and the glacier climb was amazing! Everyone loved it and was the favorite part of our vacation. So glad we did it! Don't forget to bring gloves -but everything else is provided. Dress is layers, as you can get pretty warm canoeing - but climbing the glacier got a little chilly.
