Alaska has many accessible glaciers across the state that allow visitors to experience a frozen wonderland in the height of summer, and professionally guided glacier tours let you have safe, firsthand encounters with Alaska’s magnificent glaciers. Alaska’s glacier hiking and climbing adventures are designed for a variety of interest and experience levels. You can raft or kayak through a sea of ice to the face of a tidewater glacier, fly over mountain cirques, take an afternoon helicopter tour and land on a glacier or test your footing across icewater rivers along a glacial moraine. For those who want to spend more time experiencing Alaska's glaciers and are feeling more adventurous you can you can take a one-day trip to an icefield, explore ice caves, learn technical ice-climbing skills during a multi-day climbing workshop or take an overnight camping trip on a slow-moving glacier.
