Glacier Hike and Kayaking Combination

Glacier Hike and Kayaking Combination

The ultimate adventure! Hike to a glacier lagoon, paddle across the glacier lake and hike up onto the glacier ice! You will be led on a scenic trail to a glacier lagoon where you will have the opportunity to paddle in your own single person boat as you are guided across the lake to the front of the glacier, where you will continue to hike up and onto the ice! The Glacier Hike and Kayaking combination is our most adventurous and rewarding tour. It is also rather challenging as it is 7 hours long and is recommended for people that exercise on a relatively regular basis and have no major pre existing medical conditions. This tour is a true wilderness style experience and one that we love to guide! You will also have the opportunity to try ice climbing on this adventure if you would like to make this outstanding adventure even more adventurous!
