Spectacular Experience
, Aug 2021
This is an absolute must, if you are in Anchorage or anywhere close by. This glacier is beautiful and the fact that you can walk on it is amazing! Our guide Christian was perfect. Full of information and facts and just a great positive attitude. I would do this again!!

Glacier Hike, Up Close & Personal
, Sep 2018
Amber picked us up at our hotel in Downtown Anchorage and drove us the two hour-ish scenic drive to the Matanuska Glacier access area, occasionally stopping for us to take some pictures. She provided helmets, crampons, gloves, walking stick, and if needed, boots, at the glacier. Amber guided and instructed us while on the glacier, for safety and to be sure we were hiking at our comfort and ability levels. We were fortunate to have a beautiful Sept. day, but she told us that even when it's gray/rainy in other areas, typically the glacier is still decent weather. We had an awesome hike experience and the scenery with the fall color, the white glacier and the blue sky was picture perfect. When we arrived at the glacier, it was earlier than other tour groups, so it wasn't very busy until we were leaving. Liked the timing! Also meant we were back to our hotel before 4 pm (but a larger group might take longer to get back to each individual hotel)!Lunch, right outside the glacier hike entrance, had a nice view of the glacier too. All around great experience!
