Alpine Hike on the Alyeska Glacier from Girdwood
Discover the Alyeska Glacier
The Alyeska Glacier is nestled in Glacier Bowl of the Chugach Mountains. Overlooking breathtaking views of the Turnagain Arm and towering alpine peaks, you will be dazzled by traveling on a snow covered glacier during the Alaskan Midnight Sun.
Hikers ride the Scenic Alyeska Tram up to 2,300 feet & back down to the Alyeska Hotel near sea level. From the upper mountain tram, you will hike a scenic ridgeline surrounded by the 7 glaciers of the Girdwood Valley and outstanding views up to the glacier - making photo & rest stops along the way.
In totality, the hiking is 2 hours over a distance of one mile round-trip with an 800 foot elevation gain. At the glacier's edge you will gear up with climbing harnesses, ropes and/or crampons, NEOS over-boots and learn about glacier travel before heading onto the glacier itself.
There are no refunds. All sales are final.
