How difficult is the hike?

You will be on the glacier approximately 2.5 to 3 hours and walk around 2 miles (3.2 km). The tour requires walking on a slippery uneven surface. The guides at the glacier will provide micro-spikes for more secure footing. These spikes stretch to fit over your boots. You will be walking and stopping to listen to the guides.

What’s the weather like? What should I wear? 

Summer temperatures can range from 45 to 80 F (7 – 27 C). Dress in layers. Bring a light windbreaker or fleece jacket and a hat. Long pants rather than shorts are recommended. Always bring more layers than fewer. Remember sunglasses and sunscreen. There is plenty of room for back packs and you can always leave things in the van when you go out onto the ice. 

What kind of shoes should I wear?

We recommend light hiking boots for maximum comfort. Tennis shoes/sneakers are also OK in summer. You will be outfitted with microspikes that slip over your shoes so no heels, please! Absolutely no flip flops or sandals.
