What You Visit:

Hike in Mendenhall Glacier National Recreation Area
Your small group (limited to 12 people per guide) will be led by a certified interpretive guide, as you enjoy a challenging trek through the beautiful Tonass National Forest with views of the Mendenall Glacier. Once you arrive at the trailhead, you will gear up and trek along a secluded trail with several glacier views. You'll cross bridges spanning babbling brooks, hike trails to glacier overlooks, and stroll beneath quiet forested canopies. Your guide will help you keep a look out for signs of wildlife and animals you may encounter along the trail. Your guide will choose from several excellent trails around the Mendenhall Glacier National Recreation Area, based upon the day's hiking conditions.

Whether you're interested in wildflowers or birds, scenery or activity, expect a refreshing outing in the glacier-carved wilderness with many opportunities for photography and lasting memories of Alaska.
