This was a highlight for our small tour group. The guides were laid back and informative about the glacier. There was a lot of road construction in Palmer to get there, but it was worth the travel. When you arrive, you take a military vehicle...More

The exposure to Knik glacier this tour provides is just a rare experience. Words won't do it justice. Our guide was great, and made the trip over rough terrain and icy water very enjoyable. This was our family's favorite adventure in Alaska. We even saw...More

We had the pleasure of taking a tour on 8/16/18 with our family of 5. It was a drizzly day and the truck ride and boat ride are exposed to the elements, so we got a little damp and chilly. However, the truck ride is...More
