Glacier Hike - the way it should be

Max, Frank and Kendra were awesome. Took the time to check if we were equipped right, got the team in place and ensured the pace was right for the whole gang. The info along the hike was good. We are so glad we did this with Rockaboo and I’m gonna recommend to go with them anytime you get a chance to.

Our guides Sheb and Justin were very knowledgeable and great fun to be with during the entire duration of the tour. The glacier walk is a once in a lifetime experience, and if you have the guts to hang over a 75 ft Crevasse, don’t think twice, just go for it! You will be in very capable hands. You are bound to make great memories.

"Intimate and vast. I could have stayed all day".

, Jul 2021
I was hoping to lose a bit of myself in the glaciers vastness. I did just that. Very intimate experience and I was put at total ease from my guides attention and care. His own love of the terrain provided an overall attitude of adventure, and he also provided an abundance of knowledge.
