ACTIVITY LEVEL: The overall activity level of this tour is a LEVEL 3.  This means you’re an on-the-go traveler. You don’t want to miss a thing, so walking and standing for longer periods of time (1-2 hours) isn’t a big deal.  You can navigate hills and uneven ground, climb into various modes of transportation (tuk-tuk, cable car, Zodiac, etc.), and could possibly anticipate changes in elevation.  You can expect some longer days balanced with free-time to recharge or set out on your own adventure.  While you are searching for the northern lights, you will be walking and waiting outdoors.  It is recommended that you wear sturdy non-slip snow footwear and warm clothing including thermals, hat, scarf and gloves.  Most natural sites such as waterfalls, beaches, and lava fields require walking on unpaved, uneven surfaces rendered slippery by ice and rain.  Sturdy footwear and ice crampons are required if you plan to walk in these areas or approach the waterfalls.
