Description

Trek across the crevasse-laced expanses of the Matanuska Glacier on this exhilarating guided walk. Learn about the geological forces at play beneath your feet as you strap on a pair of ice-gripping crampons and get up-close looks at this 27-mile-long (43-km) glacier.

Get picked up from your Anchorage hotel and head out of town, winding beneath rugged slopes of the Chugach Mountain and along the winding bends of the Matanuska River. Reach the toe of the glacier and hop out of your ride before donning crampons and grabbing a walking stick to help you keep your balance on the glacier's slippery face.

Trek by pale blue ice caves and deep crevasses, learn about the mountain-carving power of the glacier's slow march, and spend some time snapping photos of the Susitna Valley's craggy peaks. Recharge after your hike with a tasty lunch at a restaurant overlooking the glacier, and then head back to Anchorage in the early evening.

We ended up being the only people on the tour; the guides; Kenan and Kristi were awesome! They were knowledgeable and fun, but really looking out for our safety. This wasn't the cheapest option for the tour, but this company went above and beyond! They even provided us with extra gear when the day turned out to be much colder than anticipated. Would do the tour again - in a heartbeat - but only with Salmon Berry tours!

Outstanding way to see the glacier. Our guides clearly knew the way around and pointed out a lot of details I probably would have missed, and the scenery was incredible.
