Advanced Trek

Deep Glacier Exploration

Glacier Exploration

Go Further, Go Higher

This adventurous trip gets you out to the spectacular features of the “Backcountry” of the glacier.

For those looking for a demanding yet rewarding glacier experience.

This trip is appropriate for adventurous travelers seeking a full day of glacial exploration.

Our experienced guides will take you to a remote area of the glacier and use basic rope and anchor systems to safely access some of the most spectacular features of the Matanuska; explore moulins, crevasses, blue pools, and rare ice features.

Your time on the ice includes a mixture of hiking to scenic vistas and using ropes to scramble up non-vertical walls and walk to the edge of large crevasses and moulins.

Please keep in mind these activities involve height exposure. This trek requires a 2 mile hike through the uneven glacial moraine. 

This Tour Requires:

  • Minimum age: 12 years
  • Able to walk at a brisk pace
  • Able to walk over uneven terrain

*Our Advanced Trek fee does not include the Glacier Park Access Fee, which must be paid upon Check In at the MICA Base. The current fee is $45 per person but is subject to change; we have no control over this access fee.*

Why explore the Matanuska Glacier with us? Our Guides are out on the glacier every day, often on their days off! We know the best features and how to get you there while managing the risks of hiking on a glacier.
