Exit Glacier Guides believe that the more effort you put into a hike, the more you get out of it. Consequently, our hike takes people up an hour-long incline, through an alpine valley, down a 45º rock scree, and onto the surface of Exit Glacier itself.
While you don't have to be a track star or a sherpa to complete the trip, it does take a little effort and a willingness to get tired and a smidge dirty in order to reach the glacier. What's the payoff for all of this work? Just look at the pictures to the right. Exit Glacier Guides offers visitors to Seward, Ak a chance to see an unique natural wonder close-up - and since it takes a little work to get there - our groups see it without a crowd.
We are the only tour operator in the area doing a comparable trip, and we humbly assert that this is a darn good one. Also, due to the constantly changing nature of the glacier, no two trips of ours are ever the same.
Learn basic ice climbing and to spend hours exploring an ever-changing glacier! You need not have any experience or special equipment to come climb with us, just a sense of adventure.
We provide small client to guide ratios of 3:1, experienced instructors and carefully maintained equipment to lead you out onto the ice. Our trip is designed to not only expose you to the world of Ice Climbing, but also to spend a large amount of time on the glacier just simply exploring and finding amazing features around every corner; or crevasse.
We start our trip at our office in Seward to outfit you with all the necessary equipment. Just bring the recommended clothing and a camera and we’ll provide everything else including technical equipment, backpack, trekking poles and lunch.
