Ice Cave Exploration

Under the edge of the Kennicott Glacier is a world that few get to see and experience. Glowing blue walls of ice, light seeping through cracks and holes, rushing and dripping water and loose rock and mud shifting under foot - this is not a journey for the faint of heart or shaky of foot, but one you'll not want to miss if you're up for the challenge!

This trip can be very challenging. FOR FIT AND EXPERIENCED HIKERS ONLY! We will generally only book this trip for those who have already been on a glacier hike with us or have previous glacier experience. If you'd like to see ice caves and/or similar features but do not have a lot of experience we recommend signing up for our full-day glacier hike, where you will have the highest likelihood of finding blue ice and/or tunnel-like features on the surface of the glacier.

Trip Highlights:

  • Blue light passing through walls of ice
  • Views out through cave entrance
  • Touching different textures of ice walls and ceiling
  • Feeling separate from the whole world

We run these trips daily at 10am and 2pm or on demand for groups of 4 or more. We do not always go to the same cave(s) and it is very possible your trip will be cancelled due to lack of stable and accessible caves to visit.
