Seward, Alaska's Premier Hiking and Climbing Guides

Come hike with the company that started it all in Seward!

We are a Seward based guiding and hiking company focused on providing affordable Alaskan Adventures on the mountains and glaciers of Alaska.  This season will be our 11th year guiding folks on Ice Hiking and Ice Climbing tours in Seward.  We pioneered glacier guiding on the Kenai Peninsula and have the most experience to safely guide our clients onto the glaciers of Kenai Fjords National Park and the Chugach National Forest.

Our tours allow adventurous folks to ice climb and ice hike directly on the surface of the glacier. Our two playgrounds are Exit Glacier and Godwin Glacier, where we either hike in or approach by helicopter.  The helicopter tours allow folks to experience the ice on their terms, either hard charging or more laid back, easy going.  

We also offer an inexpensive ride to Exit Glacier from Seward via an hourly, eco-friendly $10 shuttle. The rangers at the park offer free tours of the lower area 3 times a day.

Feel free to check out our tours, videos and reviews to see more of the Exit Glacier Guides experience.  Recently ranked #8 in the top 10 Adventure Tours in the world by Trip Advisor, we think you'll find the Alaskan Adventures you're looking for.

The whites and reds of various sedimentary rocks formed the jagged ridges that sliced their way through the bluest of skies. The hills were covered in the greens of grapevines and olive trees that had taken root long before even Exit Glacier Guides’ co-owner, Ryan Fisher, was born. Perched atop these knolls were ancient fortifications dating back to the times of the Roman Papal state. The noblemen of years past had long since disappeared, leaving these now derelict structures to the will of teenage graffiti artists. The... Read more

                  A recent trip to Valdez, AK was the moral booster I had been looking for.  In a winter much warmer than most, this has been the season to get creative and search a little harder for the things I love to do.  Minimal snow has kept the skis in the closet more than I care to admit, but with the extra time, I’ve found plenty of good ice to climb! 

                  For any ice climber, Valdez is a mecca and a must see.  The roadside classics of Keystone canyon are awe inspiring and just the tip of the iceberg. Plenty here to keep you busy for days on end.  So, when I heard about the Valdez Ice Climbing... Read more
