This tour is for the more fit travelers and a good alternative to motorized tours of similar length. It involves four and a half hours of walking over greatly variable terrain. While still a narrated tour, the interpretive hike covers more ground than a walk and explores the glacier topography in depth, sometimes off trail. It is the best way to feel and smell the wilderness travelers come to see. This tour gives our small groups (6 guest maximum) a chance to see the forested area near the Nenana River, and a variety of wildlife habitat and vegetation. No food is provided on this tour. Guests should bring food, if needed. Bring water and appropriate clothing for changeable weather, including cool temperatures and rain.
