WS#2 Root Glacier Hiking Tours

Our Root Glacier hike is most likely the best day hiking trip in Alaska, and almost certainly the best glacier hiking in Alaska! After meeting your guide and getting fitted for crampons, you'll start out on the 1.8 mile hike to the "white ice" of the Root. Along the way your guide will share interesting details on the local natural and human history. Once on the ice you will explore other-worldly formations unlike anything else you have ever seen: blue pools, waterfalls, canyons, crevasses and moulins - holes drilled hundreds of feet deep into the ice by the flowing meltwater. There is no set route so you and your guide can explore what is most interesting to you. After a picnic lunch on the ice (we'll bring pads for you to sit on), you'll head back by a different route and return on the trail to Kennecott. Glacier Hiking in Alaska at it's finest! Duration: 4-6 hours
