Glacier Access

GLACIER ACCESS

Are you a Do-It-Yourself type?  No problem!  We offer glacier access for those who want to take their time, on their own, to explore the Matanuska Glacier in a very personal way.
There’s a maintained trail, with paid access,  that leads one-third of a mile to the top of the glacier. At that point, the ice is open for exploration. Please exercise every caution, avoid steep slopes or jumping overflowing water. Ice grippers and crampons are useful but not required. If you’d feel more comfortable with a guide, we’re happy to assist you.

Winter Glacier Tours

BOOK NOW

Baby, it’s cold outside!  Yes, and that makes for spectacular glacier viewing.  Get your snow gear on and join us for an unforgettable trek out over the Matanuska Glacier.  Matanuska Glacier Adventures offers daily winter tours, winter activities and winter glacier access to Alaska’s largest glacier accessible by road. Immerse yourself in the beauty of the glacier, a vast river of ice surrounded by snowy peaks and wilderness.

When you’re not sure what to do on a brisk, winter day, give us a call to plan a winter glacier tour for your family and friends.

All levels of ability welcome and accommodated, including those unable to walk.
