GLACIER OVERLOOK HIKE

“I will definitely be doing this again! Guides were attentive, kind, and very helpful. I felt safe and cared for throughout the trip.” ~ Roseann "So fun!! We highly enjoyed the views and experience." ~ Evette “We could not have done this on our own and it was so special to be able to share this experience as a family - the challenge was just right for all generations.” ~ Beth

Witness the transformation and rebirth of the Blast Zone, from Spirit Lake to the crater edge. This unique adventure travels off-trail to a view that is eye to eye with one of the fastest-growing glaciers in the world, Crater Glacier. This is as close as you can get without hiking into the crater! A staff favorite.
