Matanuska Glacier Winter Tour

The Matanuska Glacier is one of Alaska's premiere destinations.  At 27 miles long and 4 miles wide it is Alaska's largest glacier accessible by road.  It also is boasts one of the most accessible areas to walk on of any glacier in Alaska.  Marvel at ice that formed 10,000 years ago high in the Chugach Mountains above or just take in the magnificent view and enjoy a great lunch at the Long Rifle Lodge. Your day will start with a magnificent scenic drive along the Glenn Highway with stunning mountain vistas and plenty of time for photo stops. Next we will drive to the toe of the glacier to dawn our ice cleats and helmets to and begin exploring the glacier by foot. After our hike we will warm up and  have lunch at a local eatery with stunning views of the glacier.  Each day is unique due to the dynamic nature of the glacier. We generally spend two hours and walk three miles on the ice. This is a once in a lifetime bucket list opportunity to explore glacial ice and ice caves!
