Alpine Glacier Hike

Ride the Scenic Alyeska Tram up to 2,300 feet & back down to the Alyeska Hotel near sea level.  From the upper mountain tram, this guided glacier hike follows a scenic ridgeline surrounded by seven glaciers of the Girdwood Valley.  This is a moderate to strenuous hike with 800’ elevation gain in 2 hours.  At the Glaciers’ edge we gear up with climbing harnesses, ropes, NEOS over-boots and/or crampons and learn about glacier travel before heading onto the snow field itself. Trips include all glacier equipment, trekking poles, extra attire, as needed, granola bars and waters, naturalist glacier guides, tram ticket, 5:1 ratio and interpretive natural history, ecology and glaciology discussions. Wear comfortable warm clothes dressing in layers (fleece jacket, rain jacket/pants, gloves, wool/fleece hat, sunglasses, ball cap) hiking boots or running shoes, backpack, binoculars and a camera. This is a moderate to strenuous activity.
