Glacier Hikes

Best Alaska Glacier Hiking!

Join us for a half or full day hike on the Root Glacier. By far our most popular activity and for good reason! The glacier is easily accessible via a moderate 2-mile trail from our office in Kennecott. We’ve taken everyone from young children to great-grandparents out on the ice with fabulous success!

On all of our Alaska glacier hiking trips you’ll have the chance to see an amazing variety of glacial features such as crevasses, canyons, waterfalls, blue pools and moulins (holes drilled in the ice by meltwater).  The highlight of many a trip to Alaska!
