If you are in the Kennicott area, this is a must do. Informative and fun. Good for all ages and abilities. This company has keys to all the buildings with guides that know their facts.

Wonderful guide!! Logan was very knowledgeable about the area and glaciers. He allowed periods of rest breaks when needed without feeling pressured to keep going. The views were awesome of the mountains and glaciers!
