We did this tour through get up and go mountain and glacier tours. It was breath taking and a once in a lifetime experience. Hazel, our guide, was awesome. We really enjoyed spending the day with her. She was very knowledgeable and informative.

At the beginning of August I participated in an icewalking tour of Kennicott Wilderness Guides at Root Glacier. Walking a glacier is a special experience and definitely recommended if you have never done that before. The world looks so different, impressive and unforgettable.
Our guide Hazel was terrific and we felt very safe trying our first ice climbing with her on belay. The walk to see the glacier sights was pretty cool too. We had to borrow stiff boots, crampons, and climbing harness. The borrowed gear was in...More

Thanks for your interest in our trips! Our half-day glacier hike is a great option for what you are looking for. Hiking on a glacier is often the highlight of many people's trip to Alaska. Our half-day covers 5-6 miles in about 4-5 hours. We have options to join a group or book a private guide. We do not offer fishing but we do offer tours in private boats called Packrafts that don't always involve white water. Packrafting with us is a unique and amazing experience because you have a chance to paddle your own boat in a glacial lake with a view of Stairway Icefall. If you have any more questions please feel free to call or visit our website!
