Nestled in the Glacier Bowl of the majestic Chugach Mountains, the Alyeska Glacier provides hikers with countless breathtaking views--and unparalleled photo opportunities.

Your exhilirating adventure begins on the scenic Alyeska Tram, which will take you 2,300 feet above sea level. From the upper mountain tram, you'll embark on an exciting hike along the ridgeline, where you'll see seven amazing glaciers in the Girdwood Valley. You'll make several photo stops and your guide will discuss points of interest, educating you on the local wildlife and history of the area.

In total, you'll hike for 2 hours over a distance of one mile round trip, with an 800 foot elevation gain. At the glacier's edge, you'll be provided with gear, including climbing harnesses, ropes, NEOS over-boots, and/or crampons, as well as full instruction with regards to travel and safety while on the glacier.

Following your memorable hike, you'll ride the tram back down to sea level.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
