exit Glacier nature hike
This 2.5 hr. hiking adventure is great for, viewing a glacier without getting on the ice, families, groups, or adventurers with limited time to experience the beauty of a glacier in Seward, Alaska. These trips are offered morning and afternoon. Masks are required for the shuttle transportation and the hike shuttle by everyone!
Federal regulations, CDC, Local and State rules and regulations apply! Drivers will take temp before boarding the shuttle and those with fever will not be permitted to board. Safety First!
WHAT TO EXPECT
This trip departs from Adventure Sixty North at the north end of Seward. We will shuttle you from and to your local B&B, local campground and local Hotels at no cost!
We will head to Exit Glacier to begin your hike with knowledgeable guides. As we drive out to the glacier, we will stop at the pull out for a great view of Exit Glacier, a definite photo moment!
Our shuttle van will also stop at the Kenai Fjords National Park welcome sign for a photo opportunity!
The visitor center stop is a favorite of our guests and after that brief stop we are all about the hike to the overlook where you will be looking down onto the toe of the Exit Glacier.
WHAT TO CONSIDER
This hiking experience goes rain or shine, there can be a definite change in temperature as you get close to the glacier with breezes blowing down from the Ice Field. We recommend that you take a extra layer if you typically are cold natured. The hiking trail is a partially black toped trail that turns in to a undeveloped hiking trail which can be slippery and challenging to people that are not used to hiking nature trails. At points you will hike on gravel, rock and encounter narrow beam bridge crossing a small drainage.
If you consider yourself unstable with walking on a undeveloped trail as described, we recommend that you not participate with this hike for your safety! But, you are welcome to go out to the visitor center and do some sightseeing on the walkway that meanders around the visitor
center and the out flow plain where viewing sites are located as a shuttle passenger only and we charge $23.60 ea. for that option.
A signed assumption of risk and acknowledgement of risks is required for anyone to participate!

ABOUT THE COMBO
This 2.5 hr. Exit Glacier nature hike and the Gold Panning at Clear Creek panning area located on Adventure Sixty North property is great for, viewing a glacier without getting on the ice and combining a bit of Alaskan history by learning how to find gold in a gold pan the Alaskan way! We will hike with you and provide a bit of glacier knowledge and local interpretive information as we hike to the toe overlook of Exit Glacier. The Gold panning demonstration and panning adventure will happen at our Clear Creek panning site on our property using our rustic water troughs, and our tarp covered log structure for protection from wind and rain. Everyone finds gold and other semi precious stones, we don't know how much you will find, but we do guarantee that you will at least find flakes of the precious mineral that is included with our pay dirt.
You keep what you find, we supply the pans, local information, a bit of history mixed with a bit of geology, humor, instruction, and glass vials for your gold specimens and a container for your semi precious stones. Garnets, Fluorite, Quartz, Red Jasper, and many others.
