We thoroughly enjoyed the hike up Laughton Glacier! Our guides were knowledgeable and accomodating, ensuring everyone had what they needed to hike the glacier (For example: crampons, which really do help, were provided). It can get a bit wet in Alaska, so factor that in. We wore layers, with a rain jacket over top. Good footwear is also an obvious must.
The scenery along the hike is great. I would consider it a moderate hike, though for some reason our cruise operator listed it as "extreme" (it's not, unless you consider the need to be careful about footing). The whole hike is a scenic endeavour, so we took lots of photos.
We socialized with the guides, who were incredibly nice and knowledgeable. It was impossible not to learn something about Alaska, the Laughton Glacier, or Tongass National Forest.
I would have to say that this excursion was probably the highlight of my Alaskan experience.
