4 hours tour, takes a 20 minute drive by a nice, enclosed jet boat to the glacier. Unparalleled view of the mountains on the ride. We saw 4 moose and a bear and icebergs floating on the river. Once at the glacier, the boat rides all the way to the icebergs, and then we took an easy hike to a camp side where we were served hot chocolate, hot cider and snacks. You can hear the icebergs cracking off the main glacier face. The glacier view and the surrounding mountains are spectacular, great photo ops. While at the camp, we did an easy 30 minute hike with the family. You are in the middle of pristine wilderness, not another soul around. Our guide (the owner) was very knowledgeable, pointed out wildlife to us, treated us like family members. Dress well, as it is 10-15 degrees colder at the glacier than in Palmer, and it can be windy. You will not get wet. Expert kayakers (weather permitting) can kayak on the glacier lake. This tour was the highlight of our Wasilla/Palmer experience.
