The Matanuska Glacier is a stable 43km long river of ancient ice. Thousands of years old, this massive glacier is tucked up into the Matanuska Valley. Spend 2+ hours on the glacier with your glacier guide learning how the glacier has formed and shaped the landscape in the Matanuska Susitna Valley. Explore blue meltwater pools, the ice formations and deep crevasses that make up the Matanuska Glacier.
Walking on ice is slippery fun, guests are equipped with a helmet, walking stick and crampons for your shoes. Guests are required to bring sturdy footwear and suggest bringing 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 - makes for great facials! This tour does require walking for the tour length about 2 hours.
Water and snacks are complimentary in the touring vehicle. A stop for lunch (not included) will be made where you will overlook the glacier.
