  • The Mendenhall Glacier is a 12-mile-long glacier in the Mendenhall Valley, located only 12 miles from downtown Juneau in Southeast Alaska.

    The Ice Caves are inside the glacier, accessible only to those willing to kayak to, and then ice climb over the glacier. However, the glacier is retreating increasingly fast as global warming heats the oceans and temperatures rise. 

     

    Images of the caves circulate the internet with such captions as "otherworldly" and "surreal," but "melting" and "fleeting" could be used as well, as this glacier creates incredible new landscapes while we watch it melt away.

    I haven't actually done it yet so I can't recommend anything for sure but there's a list of tour operators on TripAdvisor: https://www.tripadvisor.ca/Attraction_Review-g31020-d105339-Reviews-Mendenhall_Glacier-Juneau_Alaska.html . However it is something you can do independently if you're very adventurous. It does take quite a bit of hiking or kayaking to reach the glaciers, and then navigating inside/to an entrance seems to be quite a task. Then there's always the possibility of it collapsing while you're inside. Safer to tour I think!

    Can you recommend a tour to do this? Or is it something you can do independently?
