Anchorage Matanuska Glacier Walk Tour

After being picked up from your hotel, we'll make our way towards the Matanuska Glacier where you will spend over 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, the ice formations and deep crevasses.

Walking on ice is slippery fun, so our guests are equipped with a helmet, a walking stick and crampons that attach to your shoes. We require our guests to bring sturdy footwear 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. Our fully-guided transportation includes a pick up at your hotel in Anchorage as well as water and snacks in the touring vehicle.

We will also stop for lunch where we'll overlook the glacier while enjoying some yummy Alaskan fare.

Included: Lunch.
