The Fosse

Trip Description

Due to a short flight, thus cheaper airfare, this destination is perfect for fly in day hikes or an affordable way to fly deeper into the Kennicott Valley. The flight takes you about 10 miles up and across the Kennicott Glacier to an alpine pocket nestled between the glacier and the mountain edge called a fosse.

There are 3 – 4 days worth of great day hikes that explore a variety of terrain including an overlook to the iceberg filled Hidden Creek Lake.  Other hikes include glacier exlorations, and pushes into the alpine areas above the airstrip.  For those clients interested in longer and more challenging day hikes, we can strike out across the Kennicott Glacier and see how far we get.

The Fosse is a wonderful and inspiring trip right here in our backyard!
