Explore an Ice Cave

Head out to the most sought after feature of Alaskan Glaciers! This Matanuska Glacier experience is perfect for those who want to experience the beauty of an Ice Cave quickly and by foot.

Please note:

Ice Caves may close at any time. Glaciers by nature are dynamic, and for this reason we reserve the right to not enter an Ice Cave if our guides deem it unsafe. We trust our guides to make informed decisions with your safety as our main priority. We offer this trip only one week in advance to give you the best opportunity to visit a beautiful ice cave.

This tour requires hiking over a mile on uneven, difficult terrain to reach the ice cave.
