Hour 1: Meet at Pangaea Adventures to get fitted into crampons. We take our van up to Worthington Glacier via Keystone Canyon and Thompson Pass.

Once at the glacier, we strap the crampons on our shoes and step onto the ice. We hike upward towards the second tier of Worthington glacier and explore the crevasses and sculptured blue ice.

Hour 4: Have a seat and enjoy the expansive view for a lunch break. We serve hot drinks.

Hour 5-6: If your feeling strong we'll head further up the glacier to maximize our views. The walk back down to the parking area

Hour 7: Return to the van and relax as the van heads back over Thompson Pass and through Keystone Canyon back to Valdez. If we have time, we will stop for a photo opportunity of the waterfalls in Keystone Canyon.
