About Child’s Glacier Tours by The Riverside Inn
We would like to invite you to experience traveling to Childs Glacier as you never have before. The road has washed away at the 36 mile bridge so the glacier is no longer accessible by road. We would like to offer you the opportunity to visit the glacier via an airboat and then a 15 passenger van.

Jack and Cherrie were great hosts as they ferried us across the delta in a super-fun airboat, and then took us in a van to beautiful Childs Glacier, Million Dollar Bridge, and a view of Miles Glacier as well. The day we were there, we nine people were the only humans in the
