Experience this Glacier before it is gone! This is an amazing up close hiking experience.
This is not an advertisement for the guided tour, but you will see so much more of the glacier than if you do a bus tour or just visit the roped off visitor area. Do you research and you can find a company that will take you up onto the glacier safely. It was amazing looking into the crevasses and not being able to see the bottom. It really puts into perspective how small we really are!
It is important to experience this glacier and they predict that it will not last another 100 years at the rate that it is melting. This has a truly spectacular views all the way around.
Make sure to bring plenty of options for clothes as the weather changes very quickly. It was very windy the day we went, but not that cold.
- Warm Clothes - Think Layers
- Rain Jacket
- Hiking Boots
- Money - This trip does cost,unless you stay in roped off areas.

The parking lot for the trail is just outside of Prince Rupert and right off of Highway 16W. This hike is an easy hike, with some hills, through a beautiful coastal rainforest.
