Overview

Few people have the opportunity to see a glacier in their lifetime, let alone walk on one. You don't have to venture as far out as Iceland, Patagonia or even Alaska to walk on a Glacier when you live in the second most glaciated state in the US!  

Join us on a challenging and beautiful hike to the Coleman Glacier of Mt. Baker, where wildflower riddled hillsides frame some of the most beautiful alpine scenery in the country. Our professional mountain guides will introduce you to alpine ecology and glaciology as you hike through old growth forest and cross crystal clear creeks. Once at the toe of the glacier, your guide will teach you how to put on crampons and walk on the stunning glacier ice. See huge crevasses, meltwater holes, blue pools, and towering seracs. Watch marmots and pikas, and count dozens of species of wildflowers and birds. Make sure to bring a good camera for this incredible experience! The hike is 5 miles round-trip and involves 2000 ft. of elevation gain. Crampon compatible mountain boots and crampon rentals are included in the cost of this trip.  

Information provided during this experience: Forest ecology of the Pacific Northwest  

glaciology, identification of plants and animals, hazards in an alpine environment, how to put on crampons, and how to walk on glacier ice.

Anyone looking to do any outdoor activities, definitely recommend partnering with AdventureTripr!

Sangeeta Iyer

I just came back from a weekend hiking trip with AdventureTripr and highly recommend them! I did a guided hike and the package included amazing accommodations as well as 2 days of wonderful hikes near Mt.Baker! Preeti is an amazing person, so passionate about her company and her vision to make outdoors accessible to everyone is something I deeply admire. Anyone looking to do any outdoor activities, definitely recommend partnering with AdventureTripr!

Amazing experience. I made new friends and re-ignited my passion for climbing

Tricia Marie

I love exploring new places, so I jumped at the opportunity to get out on Mt. Baker with Preeti Suri and AdventureTripr. This trip exceeded my expectations. From the prompt and detailed communication before the trip, the COVID health precautions that made me feel safe venturing out during this time, and the security of a guided hike out onto the Coleman Glacier, I had an amazing experience. I made new friends, re-ignited my passion for climbing, and committed to a Mt. Baker summit climb in 2021 with a new friend I met on the hike. Preeti's passion for the outdoors is inspiring and was clearly seen in all aspects of this trip. I will definitely go on future adventures with AdventureTripr.
