Try a local favorite! The Matanuska Glacier is a frozen 27 mile long river of ancient ice.


Thousands of years old, this massive glacier is tucked up into the head of the Matanuska Valley.

 You will spend 2+ hours directly on the glacier with a glacier guide by your side, learning how the Matanuska Glacier was born and how it shaped the landscape in the Matanuska Susitna Valley. Explore blue meltwater pools and awesome ice formations.

Walking on ice is slippery fun, so we provide our guests with helmets, a walking stick and spikes that attach to your shoes. We require our guests to bring sturdy footwear (stiff-soled hiking boots or shoes) and suggest that you bring an extra pair of socks. Don’t be surprised that your shoes get filthy with glacial flour. This glacial till is finely ground rock the glacier has created - it makes for great facials! This tour does require walking for about 2 hours - guests must be able bodied. The fully-guided transportation includes a pick up at your hotel in Anchorage as well as water and snacks in the touring vehicle.

Complimentary snacks and bottled Alaskan Glacier Water are provided throughout your tour.

A stop for lunch (not included) will be made where you will overlook the glacier.
