Set foot on a glacier on an excursion from Skagway, Alaska This is an opportunity for day-tripping outdoors enthusiasts to set foot on a glacier, in the context of Alaska cruise ship excursions. This is an available excursion from those on a cruise that allows actual feet on ice without paying for a helicopter or dog-sled ride, and includes a White Pass Railway ride and an expertly guided hike through Alaskan wilderness. The route enters Canada, so passports are required.
