We keep our group ratios low so you can enjoy your day without the hustle and bustle of a large group. Because we value individualized attention our private guide prices are affordable and encouraged.

Group vs. Private? What is right for you?

Group trips are available for our Half-Day Glacier Hike, Full-Day Glacier Hike and Ice Climbing to help make your vacation more affordable and introduce you other travelers.  You may be grouped with up to 6 people per guide for hiking and 4 people per guide for climbing.

Private trips ensure that you will have your own private guide to go at exactly the pace that you and your party choose as well as customize your trip every step of the way.  This is the preferred choice if you have any health issues, want to move at your pace, are traveling with children under 8, or want to bring your dog.

  • Children 12 and under receive $20/day off of ANY of our adventures!
  • Alaska Residents, and/or active military personnel (including their family) will get a $10/person discount on any of our day hikes.  Please present valid ID at the time of final payment in our office to receive discounts.
