DO NOT USE: Matanuska Glacier Walk - Winter Season

Try a local favorite! The Matanuska Glacier is a stable 27 mile long river of ancient ice. Thousands of years old, this massive glacier is tucked up into the Matanuska Valley. You will 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. In these winter months, we use machines to get us out on to the glacier, where we ride in a sleigh and make photo stops for ice formations. When we are able to do the full walk, our guests are equipped with a helmet, walking stick and cramp ons for your shoes. We require our guests 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 - it makes for great facials!

Whether we do the full walk, or do the tour with the machines will depend on the current conditions, which change daily. Please be prepared for either option, and just have fun! See photos below for what the winter conditions are often like.

Of course, our fully-guided transportation includes a pick up at your hotel in Anchorage as well as water and snacks in the touring vehicle. We will also stop for lunch where we will overlook the glacier while enjoying some yummy Alaskan fare.
