At 4 miles wide and 27 miles long, the Matanuska Glacier is the largest Alaskan glacier accessible by car.

Make it a fun and exciting Alaska day trip for the whole family!
Matanuska Glacier Adventures offers guided glacier tours to the icefall area of the glacier. Come to spend the day exploring ancient ice, in addition to learning about the history and glaciology of the Matanuska Valley of Southcentral Alaska. Enjoy hands-on adventure while having a truly Alaskan experience.

We guarantee white ice on every trip.
