The ride in the army vehicle and on the air boat was really neat, went through rivers and creeks, rough ground but the ride was not too rough. About 6 miles on land and 6 miles on the water. Got to the lake and on the boats and went close to the icebergs in the water at the end of... More

There are many activities to chose from when one visits Alaska. This is an option not to miss! The entire time spent with Tom is educational, exhilarating and a true adventure! Tom is a man who knows what he is doing and his confidence is contagious. He's going to take you into the wilderness for an activity you've likely never... More

That a very well done tour that you can do in family, you will make a short trip of road that was nice and then a short ride on a boat to arrive the the glacier and be able to spend around 1 hour to walk to get different point of view or just stay to see the ice floating.... More

4x4 to boat to glacier. Fun tip to the glacier. About 8 mile trek to the actual ice. Family loved it. Amazing views of a huge glacier. Dress warm.

Excellent tour to the glaciers - worth the trip. Take a 4x4 vehicle and then transfer to a quick jet boat before arriving at a different world. Be sure to bring warm clothing especially if you have kids.

The Knick river glacier tour is an amazing sight seeing opportunity. This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Alaska. I would recommend sax close toed shoes and jackets. If you tend to get cold bring a pair of gloves. You will love every second of this beautiful excursion.

We visited a few glaciers on this trip in a variety of ways, hiking, boating, etc. This by far was the best way to see one. The owner/guide has put together a very unique way to see a glacier up close, with a small group. Highly recommend!

My husband and I took this tour with Tom and Jake. We were looking forward to the tour but never would have imagined what was in store for us. The ride on the truck to the jetboat was so much fun. This area is so pretty and very peaceful. It is surrounded by mountains. The ice had had broken up... More
