McCarthy and Kennicott, Alaska are known for the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and the historic mines in Kennicott, and there is so much to explore! We offer our guests guided hikes to the Root Glacier! We’re here for you, so the journey will be tailored around your desires and capabilities. For each adventure, we will pick you up from the front door of your cabin and drop you back off at any time that is convenient for you!
GLACIER HIKES: 4-8 hours
At your convenience, we’ll pick you up from your cabin and head out on a hike on the Root Glacier. A surreal experience of blue and white ice that you’ll never forget! We’ll take you to another world of water and ice. Pools of blue, moulins, and waterfalls flowing over white cliffs of ice.
There are many features on the glacier to explore and see, depending on your skills and ability. Because of the small group size, you’ll be able to see more… and more of what interests you. There are a lot of big companies taking groups out on the glacier, but at the most your intimate group will only be 2-4. Most people are back in about 4 hours, but if you want to, you can continue on and make a longer day of it! $150/person
All adventures have a 2 person minimum.
