This tour is for the more fit travelers. Participants are expected to posses the ability to hike for five continuous hours up and down the nearby mountainsides. Our daily walking tours offer a similar experience in a less strenuous manner. While still a narrated tour, the interpretive hike covers more ground, and explores the glacier topology in depth. The extra time on the ground gives the group a chance to see the forested area near the Nenana river, the brushy but wildlife rich sub-alpine tundra, and the gorgeous views and highly adapted vegetation of the taiga.
Groups size is a maximum of 6 people. This is Alaska so bring your outdoor gear; sturdy walking shoes, water, jacket and rain gear, along with your camera and curiosity of this great land. Some of the basic equipment is available, including rain gear, water, overboots and trekking poles.
