We have been running our hiking tours out of Seward for five years now, and we are the only company in town offering guided glacier tours. Our tours allow adventurous folks to ice climb and hike directly on the surface of this magnificent natural attraction. We also offer a cheap ride to Exit Glacier from Seward via an hourly, eco-friendly $10 shuttle. The rangers at the park offer free tours of the lower area 3 times a day. « less

This will be one of the best days out, that my wife and I have done in many years. We went ice climbing which was terrific. Our guides were very attentive to our safety and yet still made this a fun experience.

My nine-year-old daughter and I went out for a half day with these guys in August 2013 for a walk on Godwin Glacier. They were excellent: down to earth, safe, and knowledgeable. We had a lot of good guides during our trip to Alaska, but I just liked these guys the best. When our guide, Piper, broke out a thermos... More

I've been in Alaska for 4 months and this is hands down one of the best things I have ever done!! It was my first time ice climbing and I loved it. The company gives you top class equipment and even better tour guides. Dakota was knowledgeable about almost everything we saw and even better than that, if he didn't... More

What an outstanding day!! The hike was the hardest for me but my daughter buzzed right up. The guides were very nice and waited and paced themselves so I could keep up and then rest. The glacier repelling and ice climbing was spectacular. Would highly recommend this day out for everyone. What a great experience!!!

We visited Exit Glacier with the Exit Glacier Guides. The hike was really fun but required good physical condition. Remember to wear very light clothing and then layer when you get to the top. Otherwise you will be sweating. At the top we got to the glacier through a private path and then down a rocky scree. My kids and... More

Being a Seward Native, it's rare that I take part in these touristy things when I visit. I am so pleased that I did. We did the Ice Climbing Trip and it was phenomenal. Our guides, Josh and Steve, were informative, helpful and a lot of fun! I truly felt safe the entire time. They provide all of the gear... More

My group and I took part in the Ice Hiking experience, and it was well worth all the pain and misery of the hike up/down on the Harding Icefield Trail. It rained nearly the entire time we were hiking on the mountain (not pleasant at all), so definitely pack a dry set of clothes in your bag (you can change... More

Had the pleasure of my first glacier hike today with Exit Glacier Guides in Kenai Fjord National Park with Exit Glacier Guides. What a treat! We hiked up about 1.5-2 miles up to the edge of glacier where we strapped on crampons and hiked across Exit Glacier with our excellent guide, Josh. Josh was quite knowledgeable and personable and took... More

Day 1: What a unique opportunity to experience something that only a handful of Exit Glacier visitors get to do - hike on Exit Glacier! With excellent guides who love their jobs our family of 6 (ages 20-52) set off on a memorable hike up the mountain and onto the glacier. We learned all about the plant and wildlife that... More
