The experience of a lifetime!! Our guides, Sam and Brett, enthusiastically and patiently educated us on the techniques required for ice climbing as we hiked along the glacier. They empowered us to succeed, and that we did - all six of us, including our 8 and 10-year olds! I can't say enough about how exhilarating the experience was for all... More

My wife and I spent a day ice climbing with Mica during out two week vacation in Alaska in August 2015. We got lucky because no one else booked an ice climbing trip that day so we had a private trek. Sam was our main guide with CJ and David also joining us. All of the guides were very knowledgable... More

Me and my husband went ice climbing with Mica on early September and it was definitely the #1 highlight of our trip in AK (besides the glacier sea kayaking, flightseeing of Denali Summit, the impressive aurora, etc.). The ice climbing is the most engaged activity among all these. This is our fist time experience of outdoor climbing and it was... More

We did an Ice Trek with MICA Guides on Labor Day weekend and enjoyed it every minute of it. Definitely the highlight of our trip in Alaska. We would for sure try it again if we ever go back- possibly do an Ice Climb next time. Our guide, Tex, was awesome.

I had been to the picturesque Matanuska glacier one other time. Didn't end up doing much exploring since wasn't sure of the lay of the land. It was so worth it to have the expertise of this company and the guides to lead us through the different highlights. I would love to return for a longer experience and possibly even... More

Mica Guides was definitely the highlight of our trip to Alaska. We have never written a review before, but Chris and Brett were sooo wonderful, that our entire family said we must send this. We went to Alaska with my husband and I and three children--two teenagers and one eleven year old. From beginning to end, Mica was sooo accommodating!... More

My wife and I went on an ice trek with Mica guides on a sunny day afternoon. We had our reservation done over the phone and we received the confirmation email immediately. We did not have any trouble in finding the place on Glen highway using google maps. We arrived at the place on time. We were explained through the... More

My wife and I just returned from Alaska after a 2 week trip. We did the glacier climb as well as the trek and zipline. We cannot say enough good things about the entire staff at Mica guides. Chris, our climb guide, was informative, knowledgeable, skilled and very patient in teaching us to ice climb. He made our day unforgettable... More

A friend and I did the glacier trek with CJ, then ice climbing with Noah and CJ the following day. Excellent outfit, extremely professional, and the guides were great. Knowledgeable, friendly, and fun.

From Anchorage you drive north for a couple hours on a beautiful winding road. Chris and Sam (our guides for the day - and I mean the whole day...we were there from 10:3-0 a.m. until 6:30 p.m.) took very good care of us with ample explanations and thoroughly watching every move we made. It was a fantastic experience walking to... More
