Approximately 4¼ Hours
This trek is a two-hour hike through a glacial icescape.
Take off from Juneau by helicopter and soar over the Juneau Ice Field to the glacier.
Upon landing, listen to your guide, as there is an early emphasis on learning the proper use of the mountaineering gear (rain- and windproof outerwear, gloves, boots, ice axe, crampons, harness, helmet) and understanding the glacier features and hazards so that remote areas of the glacier can be accessed during the trek.
The trek includes more physical activity than the Glacier Walkabout, interspersed with detailed explanations of the glacial environment and surrounding area. Participants should be comfortable hiking for two hours over uneven and sometimes steep terrain. This trek is both adventurous and easy -- no prior experience is required.
Please note: Dress in warm layers; wear sunglasses. Participants must be in good physical condition and able to walk two miles over varied terrain, although two miles may not be covered on this tour. Not advisable for guests using a wheelchair. Minimum age is 12 years. Waiver must be signed and medical conditions disclosed. Guests weighing 250 lbs or more will pay an additional surcharge over the published fare. Every guest on helicopter tours may be weighed during the check-in process. The tour operator will endeavor to be discreet during this process but please be aware that individual circumstances may not allow for complete privacy.
