We had a wonderful time on our glacier hike last week. Jenny and the staff helped us get equipped for the trip and the little things really helped: an extra layer, snacks, backpack to transport gear. The hike itself was challenging, but a once in...More

This was one of the highlights of our trip. We did just the ice hiking, which was like a 4 or 5 hour trip. I don't know the name of the trip, or the number of miles. The hike to the glacier wasn't easy, and was done at a... More
