Great place to visit in the winter, loved the view. Place for lunch has just OK but the great views made up for the food quality. Best tour I’ve taken on my trip to alaska. worth the money. Would have given 5 stars if it wasn’t for the other tour group that joined us for the glacier part of the tour. Their tour group keep taking photos and didn’t leave enough time for our group to take good photos. Their tour guide also kept taking photos of us without our permission which made me feel very uncomfortable. Hope you guys will have better luck with who you’ll be touring with!

An excellent tour! Our guide picked up exactly on time, it was about a 2hr ride to the glacier with a stop halfway thru, and we saw plenty of moose along the way. The hike itself was excellent, they had everything you needed there including snow pants, jackets, gloves, hats, and ice studs that slip over your shoes. It was beautiful, informative, and we even got to taste glacier fresh water from a hole in the ice. The place we stopped for lunch after the tour was delicious too! In total it was about 8-9 hours from pickup to drop off.

Our guide Maddie was very knowledgeable and passionate about glaciers telling us all about the reasons behind ice formations and crevasses. Roads and trails were very well maintained and everyone was friendly and helpful. We had a great time in the chilly weather and definitely would recommend!
