Our popular “Matanuska Getaway” gets you out of Anchorage for a quick Alaska adventure tour. No rental car or hotels in Anchorage! We take care of everything for 3 days and two nights of hiking, ice climbing, rafting, an ATV tour and the two biggest, fastest ziplines around.

Includes Luxury Camping.  The Matanuska Getaway is planned specifically for couples or two people traveling together that are happy with twin-share accommodation.

Challenge Level: 2; Moderate hiking, trekking and climbing.  Luxury Camping at our Base Camp.  Read more about Challenge Levels.


Day 1: Meet in Anchorage, enjoy a great drive to one of our favorite hikes.  Then it’s on to Glacier View and the comforts of Luxury Camping at Alpenglow.  A great meal with an unforgettable view followed by a soak in the hot tub.

Day 2: Today we pack in an ATV Tour, whitewater rafting, and a ride on the fastest zipline in Alaska!  Another relaxing evening at Alpenglow.

Day 3: Time to get out on the Matanuska Glacier for ice climbing and exploring.  Our step by step instructions will have you climbing vertical walls of ice.  Great photo ops before heading back to Anchorage at the end of the day.

Add Sea Kayaking:  Make it a 4-day tour by adding a day trip sea kayaking in Prince William Sound.  We’ll take a high speed water taxi to the spectacular Blackstone Bay for a day paddling near glaciers and ice bergs and looking for seals, eagles, sea lions and more!  Check rates and availability when you hit the “Book” button.

Make it fly!:  This tour includes ice climbing on the Matanuska Glacier.  This is a very accessible glacier but the best climbing still takes a hike of about 1 hour each way.  Skip the hike and take a helicopter to the most stunning ice features.  You’ll have more energy for the climbing, get to the best spots and fly in a helicopter! Check rates and availability when you hit the “Book” button.

Want to drive yourself?  Many of these same activities, including Luxury Camping, may be booked through our partner website MICA Guides if you prefer an option that is not all-inclusive.
