Private Mendenhall Glacier Guided Hike

Duration: 8 hours



Taxes and fees will be calculated at checkout


Embark on a private guided hike through the Tongass National Forest, the world's largest temperate rainforest. Your 4-mile journey begins hiking past towering Sitka spruce and hemlock trees. Ascend the trail to encounter rugged wilderness with steep terrain, rock scrambles, and undefined paths. Emerging from the forest, you behold the Mendenhall Glacier. Your guide leads a hike along the rocky moraine, revealing the glacier up close. Explore this ancient ice age wilderness from the glacier's edge. This exploration allows you to observe ice features such as crevasses, ice fall at the toe of the glacier, and deep blue depths of this river of ice. The glacier is constantly changing, making each day a unique adventure. While this tour does not trek on the glacier, it brings you to the edge, where you can enjoy front-row views. Your private guide can tailor this strenuous hike to your group's needs, whether you want to go faster, slower, or spend more time in the stunning scenery.
