The Matanuska Glacier, the only vehicle accessible glacier near Anchorage. Come enjoy over 2 hours directly on the glacier with a multi lingual glacier guide by your side. Explore blue meltwater pools, the ice formations and deep crevasses.
We equip our guests with crampons that attach to your shoes. Wear sturdy shoes and bring an extra pair of socks. Your shoes might just get dirty with glacial flour. This is rock ground into fine powder by the glacier – it makes amazing fractals in the pools and river!
