We're excited that 2016 marks our 12th year guiding adventurous travelers onto Exit Glacier and into other amazing locales around Seward.

Our company created guided glacier trips in Seward, and we've spent a decade honing our focus on safety and creating amazing client experiences.

Our biggest asset is our amazing staff. We are a seasonal business that has been fortunate enough to have our experienced staff come back year after year, which is very rare for our industry.

Hope to see you in Seward!

Really great experience. We had Henry and Sage and they were wonderful guides. The group was relatively small (maybe 10 people) which was good. The hike up was tough but well worth it! Once we got to the top, we put the crampons on and got to walk the glacier for about an hour. Henry and Sage were good about... More

This was one of the coolest things I've done in my life. I signed up for the glacier climb and had no idea what an adventure I was in for. We did a pretty strenuous hike for a hour and a half up to the glacier, then strapped on our gear and found our way to the first climbing spot.... More

This tour was supposed to be a simple two hour tour to fill up some time before we had to leave for the train depot. It's about a 11/4 mile hike to the foot of the Exit Glacier. This was not the tour to hike/walk on the glacier. This just goes to a point about 200 feet from the foot... More

My family visited Seward from Atlanta not knowing a lot about the area. I was well pleased with our Exit Glacier hike today and in particular thought our two guides Sage and Jeff were outstanding. While the hike was strenuous, the pace worked well for our entire family (4 kids teenager and above). I learned so much about glaciers! Our... More

We did 5hrs ice hiking. It's about 2 hour-trail and 2 hour-glacier. Excellent experience and amazing view. Their guide is very professional as well. Definitely a trip highlight.

Nice hike, neat way to get a nice intro into ice climbing. Overall, very well planned and supported. Greg and Steve helped us go from very easy to easy ice climbing in 3 different climbs on the glacier. We also learned various neat facts about the glacier. As a note, one person of the group was not as fit as... More

- We went Ice-climbing in the second week of July, 2016 - The instructors were punctual and helped us with loading appropriate equipment in the shop and then drove us to the base of the glacier - The initial hike leading up to the glacier is moderately strenuous, but with great views, and the instructors shared lots of information about...

If give 10 stars if it was possible. Booked the 2 day helo hike and ice climb package. Well worth the cost. Our guides were excellent (Trevor and Dakota). My teenage daughter and I had never completed anything that rivals this prior to booking this trip. Both guides were highly skilled and educated on geography, glacier history, mountaineering, and safety... More

We had a great time with Sage on our hike today. The hike itself is about 2 miles up the Harding ice Field trail then off onto a small trail to the glacier, a 1 hour hike on the glacier itself and then back down the small trail to the Harding trail. When we got to the glacier, we changed... More

From start to finish an excellent trip! Helicopter ride to Godwin Glacier and then spent 2 hours on the Glacier! Brendan was our personal guide and was great! He has some of the funniest jokes around :) We had a 15, 13 and 11 year old and he was great with them! Would strongly recommend Exit Glacier Guides for any... More
