Whether you are simply admiring Gull Glacier from Tanquary Fiord or hiking around the Ad Astra or Viking ice Caps, Quttinirpaaq’s glaciers are sure to amaze. Since much of the park is glaciated, glaciers are bound to occupy your views throughout your trip.
Glaciers must be treated with respect as they can be dangerous. Only those experienced in glacier travel and crevasse rescue and who have proper equipment should travel on glaciers. Beginning in 2012, all guides operating in glaciated and / or technical mountain terrain will require full IFMGA/IVBV/UIAGM/ACMG certification as an Alpine, Mountain, or Ski guide.
