MATANUSKA GLACIER, AK
Matanuska Glacier is one of the all-time classic glaciers to visit. In the winter, you are required to go with a guide, and in the summer months, you can head to the glacier guided or unguided. ** Disclaimer: If you don’t know about glacier travel, it’s highly recommended and encouraged that you go with a guide. Glacier travel can be incredibly dangerous, and it’s always better to have someone who knows the area, glacier rescue, and other skills. **
We are pretty familiar with the glacier, but went with Glacier Tours since we went in winter. We had an absolute blast exploring the major ice features.
