Description
Massive glaciers are some of Alaska's greatest natural features and you can explore the largest of them accessible by road in this Matanuska Glacier Private Tour. This eight-hour includes private transporatation back and forth from Anchorage as well as a private tour guide, all the equipment you'll need and even lunch at a local eatery. You just need to bring sturdy shows, warm, layered clothes, sunglasses and a camera and you'll be all set for the adventure of a lifetime.

Of all of the large Alaskan glaciers, Matanuska has the largest number of usable paths and areas to walk. Each day's adventure may be different due to the weather, but every tour includes plenty of exercise and some of the most magnificent sights in the state. The drive along Glenn Highway on the way to the glacier is stunning and you'll have the opportunity to stop along the way for photos. Take in the panoramic views of the Chugach Mountains and have lunch at the rustic Long Rifle Lodge. There are plenty more opportunities for photos along the way.

Each tour typically spends about three hours on the ice and after getting acquainted with the equipment, your party and guide will set off on the walk of a lifetime. Each walk is customized to the party's wishes and when it's over you'll be left with an experience you'll never forget.
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. We will then have lunch at a local eatery with stunning views of the glacier. 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. Each day is unique due to the dynamic nature of the glacier. We generally spend two hours and walk three miles on the ice. Each tour will be customized to suit your groups interest. This is a once in a lifetime bucket list opportunity to explore glacial ice!
