What to Expect

The ultimate glacier experience – this 9-hour adventure features hiking, glacier trekking, and an introduction to ice climbing on the world-renowned Mendenhall Glacier. The extended tour time allows our groups to access regions of the glacier that are inaccessible to most travelers and enjoy the most time on the ice compared to other tours.
Following the West Glacier Trail, this private tour allows guests to maximize their time on the glacier and experience a glacial environment at your speed and pace. The guide will bring all necessary gear for ice climbing and the extended time will allow exploration of areas where no other travelers can go!
