If you have neck or back problems you may want to ask about the "monster truck" ride, so you can perhaps sit in the front...it is an exciting, fun, bouncy ride over land and through water. After that you get a fun jet boat ride out to the glacier. Before visiting Alaska, I'd imagined glaciers to be boring chunks of... More

A great "local" experience without a lot of tourists. First a rough & rolling 4X4 trek over a couple of rivers/streams and then a jet boat ride to the foot of the Knik Glacier. A short hike up a rather steep and rocky bank to rest a while and absorb the views (be sure to wear sturdy shoes). Interesting stories... More

After reading all of the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor for the Knik Glacier Day Tour we had no choice but to see for ourselves. We were not disappointed. The directions and GPS got us to the remote office in plenty of time. On the road in we stopped to see one of the locals had converted a disabled van into... More

This excursion was SO much fun from beginning to end. We started the trip piling into a van to go 4 wheeling through rough terrain and rivers. We then got into air/jet boats to travel out to the glacier passing mini icebergs as we travelled. Once at the glacier the scenery was spectacular! The guys running the place are great... More

Two trips in one... an exciting 4-wheel drive ride over rough terrain and glacial rivers to the air/jet boats then zipping through ice fields finally landing at Knik glacier. Awesome views of mountains, the glacier, and some air traffic. Trails to hike over and facilities for comfort.

We had so much fun during this tour. First we drove through an actual river and then we got to go on a fly wheel boat. Those two were an adventure by itself. Tom and his crew are super nice people and really enjoy taking the tourists out to Knik Glacier. The Glacier itself is really beautiful to wander around... More

Climb aboard off-road vehicles; ride across land and streams to jet/air boats; journey past beautiful mountains and icebergs to land by a glacier. 3-4 hours. So fun.

We have just come back from the most amazing afternoon, can't believe how spectacular it was even on an overcast day. This trip was recommended by friends and we would highly recommend it to anyone coming to Anchorage .. Well worth the drive out. patricia and Leo, Queensland, Australia

What an incredible day!!! There are not enough superlatives to adequately describe this joyous adventure to get up close and personal with a glacier!!! The photos on their website are 100% accurate. This is a definite "must see"!!!
