Please note: Our Exit Glacier Ice Hiking tours are challenging adventures physically!

This tour is the perfect experience for outdoor enthusiasts who really want to dig in and explore what Alaska has to offer. We at Exit Glacier Guides believe that the more effort you put into a hike, the more you get out of it. Consequently, our hike takes people up an hour-and-a-half long incline, through an alpine valley, down a 45º rock scree, and onto the surface of Exit Glacier itself.

While you don't have to be a track star or a sherpa to complete the tour, it does take effort and a willingness to get tired and a smidge dirty in order to reach the glacier. What's the payoff for all of this work? Just look at the pictures on this site.

Exit Glacier Guides offers visitors to Seward, AK a chance to see a unique natural wonder close-up - and since it takes a little work to get there - our groups see it without a crowd. We are the only tour operator in the area doing a comparable tour, and we humbly assert that this is a darn good one. Also, due to the constantly changing nature of the glacier, no two tours of ours are ever the same.

We start on a well-maintained national park trail and proceed 1.6 miles up into the mountains. This portion of the trip takes about an hour to an hour and a half. During the hike, our knowledgeable guides identify many of the native plants and flowers and also use the landscape's unique features to explain basic glaciology. Quite frequently we see black bears, moose, and marmots along the way.

When we reach the ice, we don crampons, ice axes, and helmets. This gear lets us safely navigate the icy, undulating surface of the glacier.

We're proud of this tour. If you love the outdoors and want to have a truly memorable experience in Alaska, come on the glacier with us. We have offered this trip for 11 years, and we're confident that you'll be proud of our trip too.

  • Our Exit Glacier Ice Hiking tours are challenging adventures physically!
  • You don't need to be a marathon runner to have fun on these adventures, but if you aren't used to physical exertion, you might have a very hard time, or worse yet, you might not be able to complete the adventure. Here's the details:
  • We hike up roughly 1400 ft. on a National Park trail for the first hour and a half. The trail is very well maintained, but can be steep in sections. This first hour and a half is almost all uphill.
  • We cover about 3.5 to 4 miles on these trips.
  • You should be comfortable on your feet. We are on trails and a glacier on these trips, so you should be able to walk on uneven terrain.
  • We can only slow down the pace of the trip to a certain point. If your guide feels like you are endangering your health or others by continuing up on the trail at a reasonable pace, we may ask you to turn around, and we can't issue refunds at that point.
  • We have minimum ages for the tours. This is in place for a reason! Please observe these or contact us with questions.
