We booked an advanced trek since it was a private tour, to give us the opportunity for more adventures (girls ages 9 and 11) than a regular tour allowed given our girls ages. We had an amazing experience!! Our guide, Lacie, understood our goals for the day and allowed us to do what we hoped. Got to do some ice climbing, lower down a wall, climb through crevices and just have an incredible day!!! Very memorable!!

Becca took good care of us going through the rough terrain of glacier while helping us having fun scaling up & down. She is also very knowledgeable about the glacier. Scott watched us from a short distance for potential hazards & direct us to the direction where we could see awesome ice formations.

We had a fabulous 4 hour trek on the Mantanuska Glacier guided by Warren. He made sure we had everything we needed before leaving for the ice: layers of clothing, water, sunglasses, snack food. We had bought waterproof hiking shoes before our trip to Alaska. A gentleman in our party of six needed a pair and they had his exact size to loan (at no additional charge). Warren fitted us all with crampons for our shoes (which give super powers to walk on the ice!) and helmets. He showed us how to negotiate going up (stomping duck walk) and down (cowboy walk) and made sure we were all adept before moving on. The experience was in a word amazing. Highly recommend !
