“The Ice Caves under Mendenhall Glacier”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2012

The absolute most beautiful cave I have ever been in. Totally worth the Kayak trip in and the ice climbing over the Glacier. You need an experienced guide. Ice gear, warm layers etc. No food or bathroom once you leave the shore.

“Close up and personal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2012

Simply the easy way to visit a glacier. The glacier is retreating and needs to be seen before you have to hike further. Please take time to see Alaska and all of it's scenery!

“Words can NOT describe this wonder of nature & God !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2012

We liked everything about it - the visitors center & rangers were XLNT !
Parking was easy (we rented a car) - the trails are well cared for & there are rangers everywhere to answer questions & share fascinating info.
The presentations in the visitors center by the rangers were awesome !

“A MUST TO VISIT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2012

Don't take a tour as it doesn't allow enough time to walk to waterfall and vistor center. Take local shuttle $8.00 or other available transportation. Tons of options available beside cruise ship dock.
