We had a wonderful time going on the ice hike on Exit Glacier in the Kenai Fjords National Park. Everything about the experience was well-organized--we could easily book online and fill out the waiver, the pickup location was simple to find in Seward, they do...More

I took six 15-year olds on the glacier hike with Exit Glacier Guides. The students loved the hike, and later reflected that it was their favorite part of their entire trip to Alaska. The guides were knowledgable and ensured that our group was safe. Although...More

What a fantastic experience!! Henry and Jack were our tour guides, and they were great! They were friendly and full of information about the area. Stepping onto the surface of a glacier is an experience I can't even begin to explain. I feel so lucky...More

Hi I am very interested in Exit Glacier hike tour since I read a lot about this exciting hike. But I am not sure how difficult it could be. I am a female and I am in my early 50's. I consider myself in a good shape (above average). I do regular yoga or power yoga and Zumba dance every week, but not a lot hiking. I am planing my trip to Alaska in August and wonder if I can handle this trip or not. Should I book this tour? Thanks,

Sorry this is so late reply. I think you'd be fine! It's a little trek getting to the destination but they'll stop for you as needed. The actual climbing of the ice a little exerting but, your in good shape...you'll do fine... More
Hernandez_mark...I could not get the private tab to work but... I looked at their website. What is the name of the tour you booked? Easy ? Difficult? 8 mile? Your trip looks great and I would like to pick the right one. Thanks

This was one of the highlights of our trip. We did just the ice hiking, which was like a 4 or 5 hour trip. I don't know the name of the trip, or the number of miles. The hike to the glacier wasn't easy, and was done at a... More
How physically fit do you have to be for the Exit Glacier hike (not the helicopter hike)? I am in my late 40s and have a history of back problems. I am able to do easy to moderate hikes at this point and am currently doing physical therapy for my back so hopefully I'll be in better shape in the Summer of 2017 when I am in Alaska. Also, I'm traveling with two teenagers who get very little physical activity.
