Ascending Path - Guide Service
Since 1995, Ascending Path has been guiding people in the wilderness to see the ever changing glaciers of Alaska. To walk on a remote glacier, Ascending Path operates year-round guided helicopter glacier hikes and ice climbing on Spencer Glacier or Lake George Glacier departing from Girdwood or Anchorage (by round trip train, in summer only) . This tour allows several hours to hike with crampons with your world-class glacier guide to explore crevasses, ice caves, tubes, blue pools or try ice climbing. To check off 5 bucket list summer Alaskan experiences in a day, Ascending Path also operates the guided EPIC tour at Spencer Whistle Stop, in partnership with the Alaska Railroad! With your world-class glacier guide, ride a train, sea kayak, helicopter to Spencer Glacier for glacier hiking and/or ice climbing and then get another scenic helicopter flight over the Chugach Mountains. The EPIC tour departs both Girdwood or Anchorage (with round trip train). This multi-sport tour is a full day that allows several hours to hike with crampons with your world-class glacier guide to explore crevasses, ice caves, tubes, blue pools or try ice climbing. This popular tour has very few seats available per day in order to provide the highest quality experience. Try our Ultimate Overnight Glamping-glacier camping.
