Matanuska Valley
Guided Hikes & Ice Climbing (Summer only)

Please note: you will need a car to get here.
Just a few hours from Talkeetna and 2 hours from Anchorage, take a guided hike on of the most beautiful and accessible glacier areas in Alaska, or even learn beginning ice climbing. If you'd like to stay in the area overnight, we will be glad to help with lodging in the Matanuska Glacier area.

Take a flight tour from Talkeetna to Denali.  McKinley flightseeing is an other-worldly experience.

Glacier hiking is for virtually everyone! With proper equipment and an experienced guide, explore the hidden treasures of the Matanuska Glacier.

No experience needed for Glacier Hiking, Trekking or Ice Climbing.

You'll use mountaineering crampons to "walk on water" as you explore the glacier with your guide.

All Glacier tours include: Mountaineering crampons, helmet and trekking pole.

You Bring: Hiking Boots, a day pack, sunglasses, sunscreen, clothing layers and rain gear. Long pants (no shorts) are required. Hiking boots that come up over the ankle are perfect for our treks and hikes. Our crampons can fit sizes from children's size 13 through adult size Men's 14. Boots are available for complimentary loan.
