A longer adventure into this exceptional glacier

For the more adventurous glacier hikers, the NOVA Adventure Trek is a 5½-hour trek. No experience is necessary but you must be able to walk 5 miles comfortably to enjoy this trek. This adventure takes hikers out past the “Ice Falls” area to the heart of the Matanuska Glacier beyond the more frequented areas. You have the option to try a little ice climbing too. With a client-to-guide ratio of 1:4, this trek is highly customized to the group’s physical capabilities.

NOVA guides are safety-focused at all times and carry all necessary gear for additional ice climbing. NOVA provides all glacier gear including boots, crampons, helmet, ice axe, rope and all ice climb hardware.
