Physical Activity: Difficulty level is moderate to difficult. No experience needed, but must be able to hike about 5-6 miles on uneven terrain and partly loose, unstable rock.  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.

Required at Booking: Date of birth.
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).
