Matanuska Glacier Hike

Alaska Glacier Hiking Tours

Glacier hiking, or trekking, is for just about everyone.  With the proper equipment and an experienced guide you can explore a glacier in Alaska.   

Beginner or Advanced

Our signature Ice Fall Trek has been popular for over 20 years.  It’s a great way to hike the glacier, get some cool photos and learn about what you’re seeing.  We have the gear but more importantly, our Guides are out there every day so they know the best places to take you while managing the risks.  

For the fit and adventurous, the Advanced Trek gets you to the “backcountry”.  This remote area of the glacier features deep holes, big walls and beautiful blue pools away from the other visitors at the front of the glacier.  

Or you can skip the hike and take a helicopter!  MICA Guides is the only company offering helicopter access to the glacier.  Flying conserves your energy for exploring and gets you to the coolest features we can find.  And you fly in a helicopter!  Check out the Helicopter Explorer for this exciting option. 

Join a group or go private

Our small groups are a great way to make some new friends on your tour.  Our tours are usually 6-8 guests with one guide.  Or maybe you want the experience just for your family or group of friends.  The Private Trek is a great option for families with children as young as 6 years.
