Physical Activity: No experience necessary but participants should be able to hike about 8-10 miles on uneven terrain. The last ¼ mile of the trail to / from the glacier has deteriorated in recent years and could have loose rock, exposed ice, loose rock over ice, or steep terrain. This can be challenging for younger children or adults who are unstable on their feet.

Special Terms: While there is no set minimum age for this tour, the tour is not suitable for very young children (see under "Physical Activity" for more details).

Thank you for making the process of booking a tour with you so easy and yes we did enjoy our time in Alaska! The tour of Fairbanks was very good and gave us a good insight into the area. Alaska certainly rates higher than “the lower 48”
