  • Because we stayed in the nearby Logde, we noticed this possibility and there was still place on the next tour in the morning. A very nice and varied trip to the glacier, first a ride with an open army vehicle and then with a fast boat across the river to close to the glacier. There we had all the freedom to view and photograph the glacier. A short walk brings you a little closer to the Kink glacier, a glacier that is now spreading out into a lake due to its rapid withdrawal. You imagine yourself in Antarctica! If you are in the vicinity of Anchorage, a real must!

  • Wife & I had a month doing Alaska by high level land tour & cruise in August '18. Highlights by far were our day with Tom to the Knik Glacier followed a day later by a glacier landing at the top of Mt. McKinley Glacier with Chris from Talkeetna Air Taxi. Both operations very professional, highly informative & reasonably priced. We had a great time in Alaska, met wonderful people & can't wait to return.
  • I believe it is the closest glacier tour to Anchorage, where you can get up close and explore the edge of the glacier. Sheets of Dryas octopetala are found in the area. It would be amazing to see this in bloom in the spring. Randy from Juneau was our guide. He is a great guide. He knows a lot, just ask him. It really is a great trip. Worth your time and money. Do dress in layers it is breezy when on the river boat heading towards Colony and Knik glaciers.
