Ascending Path Hiking Guides
Ascending Path guides lead family friendly summer day hike & climbs from Girdwood, Anchorage and the Spencer Glacier Whistle Stop. Small group sizes allows AP to custom tailor every trip to meet your expectations. No experience is necessary!
AP guides specialize in half and full day wilderness adventures ranging from sea kayaking to a glacier and interpretive naturalism hikes to technical mountaineering and vertical ice climbing on Glaciers.
Our most popular trip is the Spencer Glacier Hike by train & sea kayak. Nowhere else in the world can you: ride a train, sea kayak, hike & explore a glacier all in a day! A world class trip & guides.
Girdwood based trips depart from the AP Yurt located at the base of the Tramway at Alyeska Resort.
