Once on the glacier, you'll be taught the proper use of mountaineering gear. You'll be trekking over remote and pristine glacier routes, so we'll make sure that you understand the glacier features and hazards.
This trek will be hard, but very rewarding. At times it will be extensive and physically demanding. You may experience steep terrain. It should last about four hours. We'll introduce you to basic climbing and rope techniques so that you can safely climb and descend ice walls. Sound like fun? If you're the athletic type, you're going to have a blast.
Mid-way through the trek, your guide will serve you an Alaskan snack.
