Glacier tours in Alaska are a great way to get up and personal with ice. Both Hunter and I have taken glacier tours over the years. If you are headed to Alaska, I recommend you create time in your schedule to attend a glacier tour.
Glacier Tour Guide
Whether you are on a holiday to Alaska or maybe even there for work, find yourself a local tour guide. There are many safety items to consider when viewing glaciers and a properly trained guide will know the best spots to take you too and keep you out of harm’s way. Watch out for bears!
Numerous hiking trails take you on an adventure through beautiful tree lines, colorful stones, and of course glaciers. I trust you will be with a tour guide with proper shoes, ropes, and clothing.
Glacier tunnels are very inviting but beware. Take your photos from outside the tunnels and see what your camera lens can capture.
You could be on the top-side walking on a glacier and see whites, grays, and blues colors. The colors can change if the sun goes behind the cloud. If you enjoy taking photographs, glaciers are wonderful to include in your portfolio. Maybe you take over 12 photos and create a calendar for your family and friends.
In case you did not know that ice melts. It does and it can create amazing waterfalls. Be careful as parts of glaciers will break off and you do not want to under one when it happens. Hunter was on a hike and the group was near a glacier cave when a large piece came crashing down next to them.
