  • Great adventure!!! For those who are fond of real adventures with off roading on the big truck and boating to the Glaciar. Despite it was a rainy day we enjoyed it so much! The guides gave us very...

  • Tom does a great job! My mom is 93 and almost blind but was able to go on this tour and loved it! Be sure to dress warmly for full enjoyment; hat, gloves, heavy coat, buff.

  • Knik Glacier Tour was one of the best experiences we’ve had in Alaska! It was like an exclusive and private tour of the glacier because these guys are the only ones operating in the area. The glacier view was outstanding and truck and boat ride to get to the glacier was an amazing experience as well. Would definitely recommend a trip to the Knik Glaciers as it’s one of the lesser known tours in the Anchorage area, making it a hidden gem!
  • Wow!!! Where do I even start? This tour is so underrated. We wouldn’t have known if not for our friend, who highly recommended this. Tom was exceptional throughout the process, right from communication all the way throughout our tour. The weather was inclement and by the looks of it we never thought we’d see the snow capped mountains with the glacier. Thankfully the weather cleared up as soon as we started! The first leg of the journey was in a all terrain truck where we were literally driving across a river in a few places. Spotted a few moose along the way! Then we embarked on a speed boat and rode along the knik glacier river which opened up to massive glaciers and snow capped mountains. The experience was surreal and one of a kind. Towards the end of the boat ride, we were literally cruising along blocks of icebergs. Hopped off at a land where we were surrounded by icebergs and mountains as far as we could see. So picturesque and be sure to grab your drone if you have one :) The entire tour took about 4 hours. Be sure to layer up, as it gets pretty cold once close to the glaciers. ( Tom provided us jackets as well if you are not carrying one). Overall, an exceptional experience and very highly recommend this tour if you are near anchorage!
  • Hands up for this fantastic tour! Traveling on Knik river via jet boat is just the next level. We had a lot of time to hang out with the glaciers, and they offer hot chocolate and snacks around the other worldly glacier too.
  • Epic trip Our Piolet and all the folks at dog camp were outstanding. We had such an amazing time. Who knew I would meet a fellow SQUID on to of a glacier. Highly Recommended!!! This is a must do!
  • This was a really great excursion! It’s not so big that you feel like one in a herd of cattle. The guys that run it are personable, real people that are comfortable to chat with. They are also capable and salty. I got the feeling that when things go really wrong, they are knowledgeable and strong enough to do the needfulls. You get to ride in a deuce-and-a-half, which by itself is more than enough coolness, but then you get a ride on a high-speed jet boat! Can’t recommend this outfit enough. They took care of everything.
