General Information about Icicle Outfitters and Guides
We are Icicle Outfitters & Guides, Inc., owned and operated by Bruce and Sandy Wick since 1983. We are members of the Washington State Outfitters & Guides Association and America Outdoors. We operate under permit of the Wenatchee National Forest, Leavenworth National Fish Hatchery, and Lake Wenatchee State Park.
Located in the center of Washington State, on the eastern slope of the Cascade Mountains, near the Bavarian Village of Leavenworth. We are: 2 hours from Seattle; 3 hours from Spokane; and 1/2 hour from Wenatchee.
We offer pack trips and day rides in the Leavenworth, Lake Wenatchee, and Entiat Ranger Districts. Some of our trips will enter into the unspoiled country of the Alpine Lakes, Glacier Peak and Henry M. Jackson Wilderness Areas in the Wenatchee and the Mt. Baker/Snoqualmie National Forests.
We have a pack station in the Entiat Valley as well as two trail ride stables. One stable is located at Lake Wenatchee State Park and the other is 2.5 miles from the town of Leavenworth, in the Icicle Valley.
Our winter sleigh rides are also located in the Icicle Valley. During the winter months, the Leavenworth area becomes a winter wonderland with many activities available.
The high-mountain lakes and streams offer fishing that will appeal to the novice as well as the experienced angler. The fishing is surpassed only by the beauty of the country itself.
Our hunting trips offer mule deer, elk and black bear.
Our wranglers are environmentally-minded, experienced horsemen, packers, and backwoodsmen. In our camps, you will enjoy hearty, home-style meals. Our cooks are experienced in back-country cooking. We serve "real" food! You'll find no prepackaged "back-packer's meals" in our camps! We can accommodate most special diets.
Early reservations are appreciated and help to assure you of getting first choice of vacation dates. A deposit is requested on all bookings. Some large party discounts are available. If we don't have the trip that's right for you -- we'll customize one especially for you! We look forward to serving you very soon!
