Matanuska Glacier Helicopter Adventures

Alaska Helicopter Adventure Tours

MICA Guides puts together the best Alaska Helicopter Adventure Tours available.  The sheer size of a glacier can only truly be seen from the air, and the incredible features are best explored by ground.  Get a little bit of both with one of our Helicopter Adventures on Matanuska Glacier. Check out the options for the ultimate Matanuska Glacier helicopter experience.

Matanuska Glacier has excellent weather consistently during the summer.  During a typical summer we have less than 1% helicopter cancellations due to weather on the glacier.  Please read through our cancellation policy before booking, but know that helicopter cancellations are uncommon.
