We offer glacier access for those who want to take their time, on their own, to explore the Matanuska Glacier in a very personal way. For the hikers experienced in glacier travel. There is a maintained trail that leads one-third of a mile on to the toe of the glacier, to an area that is marked off with tables and chairs to have a great lunch and enjoy the view.
If you have little to no experience hiking on ice, then we strongly suggest booking a tour with our experienced Matanuska Glacier Hiking Guides.
