This was easily a major highlight of our Alaska trip. We chose the most strenuous of the hikes because it put us on the glacier for the greatest period of time. The staff made sure that we were totally outfitted in the appropriate gear, right down to the crampons, ice axes, and helmets. Safety was stressed, as well as the awe inspiring views of Mother Nature. The helicopter flight was smooth and professional. Our guides, Olivia and her partner, made sure that we all had the best chances to experience our surroundings to the fullest. We made memories to last a lifetime!
