Choose your departure location from Anchorage or the Knik River Valley. Enjoy 30 minutes of flying over the vast expanse of Alaskan glaciers and mountain peaks looking for wildlife before descending onto the glacier where you will begin your climb. Choose from 2 or 4 hours of adventure (or longer if you wish) to try something that is completely unique to the Alaskan Traveler. Your guides will spend a few minutes setting up and explaining the rope systems while you snack on provided treats, take in the scenery & learn about glaciology. Your guides will equip you with everything necessary to remain safe including a harness, helmet, boots, crampons and ice tools to ensure a successful ascent up the glacier wall. You can choose to take on a steeper challenge or stay in your comfort zone, this is a challenge by choice adventure that is sure to be a conversation piece at the dinner table for years to come.
You will receive a full kit supplied to you consisting of a drysuit to keep you dry and warm, personal flotation device, paddle board, paddle as well as micro-spikes for walking on the glacier. First your guides will have you practice paddle boarding down a flowing glacier creek to get in touch with your balance on the board; once you feel comfortable, we will trek to the glacier lake using a fixed rope system to the swimming hole. You and your guide will participate in a few jumps into the glacial lake to make you feel as comfortable as possible with getting in and out of the water. This will help to understand the drysuit / PFD system in the event you lose your balance on the paddle board in the lake, you will feel prepared to get back on. Once you feel ready to take on your paddle, we will connect you to your leash and send you off into the lake for a serene paddle out and back to the end of the lake.
Choose to have a catered sit down lunch while you are there or just snack and swim at your leisure, this is your day, your adventure!
