Frequently Asked Questions

We answer your questions about our tours here. If you have any more questions, please call us any time!

How can we get to the Knik Glacier?

The primary way people visit the Knik Glacier is by Airboat, Jet boat, helicopter or fixed wing aircraft.

A pack raft is the easiest and cheapest way to get to the Knik Glacier. An 8 mile trail departs from our office with one water crossing.

Fat tire bikes are allowed and can make it quicker.

Do you pick up from hotels?

Unfortunately we do not offer shuttle service. Guests usually arrive self-driven.

Do we get to walk on the glacier?

We do not get on the glacier for this tour. The iceberg filled lake prevents access to the face of the glacier.

Glacier Camp is situated on the glacier's terminal moraine.

What age is appropriate?

We have taken 2-year-old to 95-year-old guests on this tour.

For toddlers, one consideration is hearing protection on the boat. Toddlers must be held with earmuffs while on the airboat.

The terrain at the glacier is very rocky, some of them are very sharp. Not a great place for learning to walk.

This is wilderness! We have bears and moose visit Glacier Camp. Children need to be closely supervised at all times!

Elderly and Disabled

We will do our best to help anybody that is physically capable to take this tour.

You will need to be able to climb a 3 step ladder to get in and out of our big trucks.

There is a small hill we have to climb to get to Glacier Camp the terrain is uneven and rocky.

Some guests with limited mobility have chosen to just stay on the boat while we visit Glacier Camp. We will bring them a hot drink and a snack.

The safari portion of the tour is pretty bumpy. Although nobody has ever gotten sick, we have had a couple close calls.

If you have severe motion sickness you may want to opt out or take something before the tour.

Is it cold at the glacier?

You can expect the glacier to be 10 to 15 degree cooler than everywhere else. On a hot sunny day this is very refreshing.

Are the bugs bad?

Due to the dry desert ecosystem we have fewer mosquitos or black flies than anywhere in Alaska.

What is your cancelation Policy?

You can cancel up to 24hrs prior to departure for a full refund.

Do you ever cancel due to weather?

Occasionally wind and rain can create unsafe conditions. We will cancel tours when we determine conditions unsafe. We will do our best to reschedule or issue a full refund.

What if its cloudy overcast or rainy? Do we still have to go?

We let you make the call. We can reschedule or issue a full refund.
