Alyeska Alpine Hiking Tour

Using the Alyeska Resort aerial tram, our Alyeska alpine hiking tour starts above the tree line. Leaving the upper tram, this alpine hike provides breathtaking views of the Chugach Mountains and Turnagain Arm. 

Guided Hiking & Exploration

From the upper mountain tram, we hike a scenic ridge line surrounded by the 7 Glaciers of the Girdwood Valley and outstanding views into Alyeska Glacier Bowl, making photo and rest stops along the way. In totality, we hike for 2 hours, covering an average distance of 1 mile round-trip, with an 800 foot elevation gain. In Glacier Bowl (depending on conditions) we hike up high onto a glacier snow field, or in late summer a remnant rock covered glacier. The group will finish the tour by riding the Scenic Alyeska Aerial Tram back down to The Hotel Alyeska.
