"Glamping" with us!
Enjoy the comfort of "glamping" in a historic-style wall tent with a stunning view. Relax around the campfire, and enjoy a soak in the wood-fired hot tub.
Here’s your chance to try out ice climbing on the Matanuska Glacier! Summertime on “the Mat” is an excellent time to experience the vertical world of ice climbing. Varying climbing walls, professional instruction, and a scenic two-hour trip from Anchorage make this an unparalleled glacier adventure.
A day of Ice Climbing with MICA Guides consists of a progression catered to the skills and endurance of the group. Our knowledgeable 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. No previous climbing experience is necessary.
To reach some of the best climbing on the Matanuska expect to hike about an hour over uneven terrain to reach the climbing site.
Book today and experience the Matanuska Glacier at all angles!
