A LONGER ADVENTURE INTO THIS EXCEPTIONAL GLACIER

This adventure takes hikers out past the “Ice Falls” area to the heart of the Matanuska Glacier beyond the more frequented areas. With a guide to client ratio of 1:4, so a party of 4 would have a private trip. This trek is highly customized to the group’s physical capabilities.

Minimum shoe size 5 US Men’s to fit our provided gear.

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

  • Our most intimate day with the glacier.
  • The only trek that goes beyond the 'Ice-Falls' to explore the inner heart of the glacier.
