Glacier Overnight Adventure

Matanuska Glacier Overnight

Learn to ice climb, and camp out on a glacier in Alaska.

Your first day with us will be our signature Ice Climbing day with a progression catered to the skills and endurance of the group.  Our professional guides will teach you the basic skills needed to climb on moderate ice slopes, and then help you refine your climbing techniques to move towards more challenging and spectacular terrain throughout the day. Glacier trekking and hiking is a big part of the experience, but the ice climbing will take you to new heights.

There may be others visitors ice climbing with you but at the end of the day they’ll be doing the 2 mile hike back while you’ll still be climbing before strolling over to your comfortable camp for the night.

Enjoy a glacier cocktail, a delicious hot dinner and relax around the campfire, on ice!

The next morning enjoy fresh brewed coffee with the serenity of the remote Matanuska Glacier.  After a hearty breakfast you’ll have a full day with a private guide to explore our secret stash of glacier awesomeness that’s unreachable by the day-trippers.

Because of the efficiency of the overnight, you’ll have up to 5 hours more climbing and exploring than you would with two day trips.

No previous climbing experience is necessary, although a strong level of physical fitness is required. The hike to the best climbing, and our remote glacier camp, is approximately 2 miles, takes approximately an hour to an hour and a half, and involves walking over loose rocks, muddy ice, and steep slopes.

Option:  Skip the hike and take a helicopter!  Enjoy a stunning helicopter flight over Matanuska Glacier and get dropped off near the best climbing and our glacier camp.  Additional $300/person.
