Matanuska Glacier Adventures is proud to offer tours on the unique and beautiful Matanuska Glacier. At 4 miles wide and 27-miles long the Matanuska Glacier is the largest glacier accessible by car in Alaska. A two-hour drive Northeast of Anchorage, Alaska along the Glenn Highway, a nationally designated Scenic Byway, it offers breathtaking views of the Chugach and Talkeetna mountain ranges.  Make it a fun and exciting day trip for the whole family!

Come spend the day exploring ancient ice, in addition to learning about the history and glaciology of the Matanuska Valley, enjoy hands-on adventure while having a truly Alaskan experience. The toe rises gradually to the impressive ice falls, moulins, and crevasses of the glacier offering the chance to take a step back in time and view how ice shapes the land around it. We guarantee white ice on every trip.

With over 34 years of guiding experience, new equipment, and trained glacier guides, you can have confidence in us to take great care of your family while you explore this unique landscape. Each guided trip is custom-tailored to the group’s physical abilities and interests. With this in mind, you can expect a one-of-a-kind, truly unique glacier experience.
