Matanuska Glacier Guided Ice Walk 7-8 Hour Adventure

Our spectacular Matanuska Glacier Ice Walk Tour offers visittors a once-in-a lifetime adventure, the opportunity to walk on thousand-year old ice that began as falling snowflakes high in the Chugach Mountains, then compacted over eons into the blue ice for which Alaska is world-renowned.  Your day tour begins with a meet and greet in Anchorage at one of our three departure points, near ANC airport or in downtown Anchorage.  Departure is approximately 8:15AM, with pick-up scheduled 30-40 minutes prior, depending on chosen departure point.  Then, if's off to the Glenn Highway Scenic Byway for 2.5 hours of spectacular sightseeing, including: • Suburban neighborhoods hanging on the hillsides above the city • Eklutna Flats, Knik River Valley and the front range of the Chugach Mountains  • Pioneer Alaska farming town of Palmer • A brief stop at the supermarket, where you can pick up snacks, lunch and beverages for the ride (on your own) • The spectacular Matanuska River Valley • Alaska village of Chickaloon • Breathtaking views of the Chugach and Talkeetna Mountains Upon arrival at the Matanuska Glacier basecamp, you will be greeted by your glacier guides for an introduction and orientation to walking on the ice, including fitment and use of crampons for your safety and comfort.  As you step on to the glacier you will feel secure and sure-footed.  Your group will explore the vast glacier field and peer into crevasses and moulins, marveling at the deep blue color produced by the dense ice and enjoying the contrast in the surrounding terrain and sky. Your return drive, along the same route, allows you to look for wildlife, with moose, bear and eagles among the species that most captivate the imagination.
