The Knik Glacier, located on the northern edge of the Chugach Mountains, is over 28 miles long and 5 miles across, making it one of Southcentral Alaska's greatest rivers of ice. This is our first choice tour for adventurers wanting an amazing and truly Alaskan experience.

The glacier lies at the end of a beautiful 22 mile long ATV trail where you’ll enjoy an Alaskan meal and hot drinks before the ride back. This amazing trail covers many different environments; wooded forest, sand dunes, dried riverbeds, meadows and a glacial lake. Along the way, you will see Knik Glacier, Knik River, Pioneer Peak, Jim Creek, Friday Creek, Metal Creek, and finally, iceberg-filled Lake George. The trail itself is well-defined yet rugged. You'll cross streams and other obstacles as our expert guides show you the way. Please be aware that Knik River is currently on the move. River conditions will dictate how close we get to the glacier.

Whether you're a thrill-seeker looking for adventure or a family group looking for a very fun day trip, this is the trail you want. The vast trail system here allows us to cater the experience to you and your current offroading skill level.

 As with all of our trails… be prepared! Dress warm, wear clothes you don't mind getting muddy and wear multiple layers (no open-toed shoes, rainboots are preferred). Helmets, goggles and gloves will be provided but feel free to bring your own.

When scheduling, please let us know and allow additional time if you need to make a flight or other scheduled connection.

Shuttle service to and from Anchorage or Eagle River is included.
