Great zip-linig, with two lovely guides. Really good glacier hike, very informative as well as enjoyable. Alpine Glow was just beautiful. Booking was easy through the... More

We went on a glacier hiking tour with our kids, ages 10 and 12 and it was perfect. The guides were informed and very safety conscious and the trip was a good balance of walking, learning and looking at views/glacier for the kids' attention spans. We also loved the spectacular drive there.

We came here on a tight deadline to leave Anchorage, do this tour and then drive up to our B&B in Denali - all in the same day - and perfectly manageable. We road trip the US all the time and were grateful that MICA emailed us 2 days before to tell us of the road works happening along the... More

My husband and I are in our 50s and not really athletic. This Ice Trek was perfect for us. Everyone was so friendly from the moment we arrived, and nothing was rushed. We were fitted for crampons and helmets and loaded up in the van for the trip to the glacier. Our guide was Lacey. She was very informative about... More

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor I'm even more convinced that we were ripped off by MICA guides. We signed up for Ice Trek. When we arrived my husband and I were grouped with a family with small children. The rest of the group of 8 adults went with a different guide. The two guides never bothered to ask... More

We did ice trek fall. It was a fun experience to walk on the glacier. It was a cloudy day so the view was not that amazing. Our guide was friendly but he seems very tired. He walked a bit fast and the people followed him was a little bit behind. All in all, it's a good experience and I... More

Enjoyed this experience during Fall and the leaves were the cherry on top to a great day. Our two guides were very friendly and helpful, the view spectacular, and well worth the money. I'd definitely recommend it. We were smiling from ear to ear and eager for more.
