You can’t miss this massive glacier as it almost touches the highway as you drive by. The largest icefield south of the Arctic Circle, shimmering glacial ice and snow cover some 386 sq km. (233 sq. miles). An exciting 55 minute informative Snocoach Tour will take you out onto the glacier for awe-inspiring views of icy crevasses in a comfortable 55 person specially designed bus. We highly recommend taking this tour if you want to see the glacier. Not recommended to walk on the glacier as the natural hazards of crevasses and ice pockets have claimed lives in the past. Located 2 hour drive from Mountain River Lodge.
