Our signature Ice Fall Trek exclusively for your group. Perfect for those who want to go at their own pace or with children under 8 years and as young as 6 years. No experience needed.
Our top priorities are protecting the well-being of our guests and providing the best possible experience on the glacier.
With a private trek, we can better manage the needs of your group. This may include the adjustments necessary with having a 6 year old on the trip without negatively affecting the experience of other guests.
To better accomplish our priorities, we have a strict guest to guide ratio of 6 to 1. A private trek for up to 6 guests is $444. (This rate is the same as a party of 6 with a group discount).
If you have more than 6 guests you will need two or more guides and will need to book multiple private treks at $444 each. For example, if you book two private treks you may have up to 12 guests.
Private Treks will usually start at our regular trip times of 9:30, 11:30, 2:00 or 4:30. They may be shorter than the normal 3 hours if desired, but there is no cost difference.
Why? We are usually fully booked with each of our trekking guides doing two trips per day with 6 guests each. We are doing our best to provide an experience for families with smaller children without losing business in our short 110-day operating season.
