Did the SUP tour with Liquid Adventures. Beautiful tour and Chris was a great guide. Tour was unforgettable but a little pricey.

Being a science teacher, this is a great glacier to see from the aspect of how glaciers generate moraines. Can't find this in Missouri.

I took a helicopter in and landed on the shore by the glacier. Definitely worth the trip! The lake below the glacier was full of large chunks of ice and walking along the shore was an amazing experience. Be sure to take your camera and/or movie camera.

Nice easy 1.5 hour hike round trip. Lots of incline but very gradual. The glacier was on its retreat so it was about 200 feet from us at the closest. We took out time and stacked some rocks. Just please be respectful not to step on saplings as well as the small plants. And for the love of all that... More

The hike to the best lookout sites is relatively easy. One of the most interesting aspects of the trip up is to see the documented comparisons of where the glacier is now, compared to where it was over the past two centuries.

Less visited than the other places, therefore it is just you and your kayak group out there which is fantastic. Pure nature and it doesn't matter if it is foggy as the icebergs are more blue than on a sunny day. You can hear the ice cracking and see the icebergs calving, sea lions and bald eagles are close by.... More

Like being on some other planet - beautiful turquoise water with giant icebergs floating around. This year there are 3 times as many as last year. We kayaking w/ Adventure 60 North and it was the highlight of our trip. It was an adventure unto itself to find safe passage between the giant icebergs as they rolled, calved , crashed... More

It was really good to be able to actually see and experience a glacier up close. Good learning experience!
