We’ll meet you in Anchorage, and after a gear check and orientation, you’ll enjoy one of the most scenic drives in the world as we head towards the small town of Whittier, the gateway to Prince William Sound. The afternoon will be spent paddling past waterfalls and bird rookeries then on to our campsite in the rainforest.
This is a big paddling day as we pass glaciers and ice bergs, look for seals, sea otters and more. Camp on a remote beach for the night.
Paddle to pick up point and ride the water taxi back to Whittier where you’ll load up the van and head for hot pizza & cold beer in Anchorage before landing in Palmer for an overnight at an inn or hotel with showers and a bed!
Alpine day hike then enjoy the evening at our Base Camp in Glacier View and the comforts of Alpenglow Luxury Camping. Enjoy a great family-style meal with a view, relax around the camp fire and enjoy a soak in the hot tub.
Thrill after thrill with a morning ATV Tour followed by a whitewater rafting trip down the Matansuka River on Lion’s Head and in the afternoon race down our two huge Ziplines. Enjoy another night at our Luxury Base Camp.
Glacier trekking, and ice climbing with MICA Guides, the most experienced on the Matanuska, you will be sure to push your limits and come home with some amazing photos before returning to Anchorage.
