Take your Matanuska Glacier Experience to the Next Level.

This trip is designed to go a little further and higher on the glacier, and get you up close to bottomless crevasses, enjoying big overlooks and views away from the crowds. You’ll wear a harness and one of our most experienced guides will use a rope and anchor system to allow you to safely explore some of the more technical features of the glacier. This tour is your best chance by land to see features like Ice Caves.

  • Advanced Trek Far Exceeded My Expectations
    We went on the Advanced Trek of Matanuska Glacier with Scott. The entire experience exceeded my expectations. Scott was very safety conscious, informative, and worked well with the team which made for a very enjoyable and rewarding day. The moderate physical activity was well worth it. I highly recommend this trek with MICA Guides.”

No experience needed for this trip but you should be able to walk at a brisk pace and be comfortable scrambling over uneven terrain.

This trip does not include vertical ice climbing though you may occasionally scramble up short ice walls. Great photo opportunities and a chance to do a little more without committing to an entire day of ice climbing. Smaller groups [1:4] and a faster pace than our Ice Fall Trek. Approximately 5 1/2 hours on the glacier. 7 hours total.

**If you are a group of 5 or more, don’t worry! Give us a call/email and we can chat about adding a second guide to a time slot.
