We wanted to do the ice climb tour, but my daughter was a little scared so we settled on the easier and less intimidating glacier hike. So glad we did this! I can't put into words how cool it was to strap on the crampons and walk on Exit Glacier! Shawna and the other guide were great, gave us some... More

What an experience to walk on the Glacier. I was really worried that the hike will be too hard for my parents (late 50s) but they didn't have any problems with hiking. The guide was simply awesome. They were fun and informative. We were able to walked through the crevasse so that was really fun. Definitely recommended!!!

I did the ice climbing tour. you hike for 2 hours to the glacier, put on the gear, then go hiking, climbing, and rappelling on the glacier. this was one of the most amazing things ive ever done. Our guides were great and knowledgeable. We did 4 descents with the harness and it was glorious. The pictures in this review... More

I was at least twenty years older than the others in the group and afraid of heights! The guides were amazing, keeping me calm and making me feel confident enough to give ice climbing a go. What a buzz! It's so beautiful under the glacier and such a great way to test yourself. It's fairly strenuous as it includes a... More

Honestly one of the best experiences my wife and I have ever had. There are a number of companies offering ice climbing, but it was really Shawna and Kevin of Exit Glacier Guides that made this experience as special as it was for us. We were definitely a little weary about what we were signing up for, but they made... More

Awesome. A must-do on your Seward stop. Caution - not a leisure stroll. I did fine, my wife was quite sore the next day but kept up well during the trek. One of the other hikers in the group struggled a lot. Amazing views, and you get guided onto a glacier that is rapidly shrinking and changing on a daily... More

I booked a private glacier hike for a group of about 20 adults in August 2015. Jillian was friendly, responsive and easy to work with during booking and leading up to our hike. On the day of the hike we were outfitted with the necessary equipment quickly and thoroughly. The hike itself was amazing - you work up a nice... More
