The best part of this tour is that you can come out at any time of day because you might have a lot of things going on that include hiking all through the day or in the night. You have a tour guide who knows the area extremely well, and they lead you to places that are the most beautiful in the area.
There are many animals that you might get pictures of when coming through the glacier area, and you must see if you have a chance to get close to these anoiamsl because you might see bears and wolves that come through the area. You notice that the people who live in this area are used to it, and being with a native makes the trek even easier.
The tickets for the tour are online, and you get to see the glacier in all its beauty. You must use the tour as a cheaper way to get around this area, and it is fun to come on this trek to see something so massive.
Alaska is a great place to behold, and you must come here at least once. You will be happy with your experience, and the tour group makes it so much more fun than normal.
The Matanuska Glacier, the only vehicle accessible glacier near Anchorage. Come enjoy over 2 hours directly on the glacier with a multi lingual glacier guide by your side. Explore blue meltwater pools, the ice formations and deep crevasses.
