Itinerary

Day 1: Your exclusive adventure starts with a spectacular drive out to our Base in Glacier View, about two hours northeast of Anchorage.

Drive to Glacier

Roadside view of the Matanuska Glacier

After gearing up for your day on the Matanuska Glacier it’s time for your first helicopter flight.  You’ll buzz past the others doing a long walk out to the ice and get dropped off in the most scenic area of the glacier with the best features for climbing and exploring.
This private day is just for you.  Learn vertical climbing skills on towering walls of ice or explore the best of the Matanuska Glacier’s features. The helicopter flight gives you more time so you’ll get your fill and enjoy a spectacular flight back for a relaxing eveningGlacier Adventure at Alpenglow Luxury Camping.  Have a great dinner, a beer around the campfire and an awesome meal with a view before retiring to your comfy “glamping” tent for the night.

Day 2: Your helicopter adventure continues today.  Once again, that wonderful machine will get you out to the real Alaska where you can hike and explore.  This adventure can be a “Point to Point” or you can set up camp and explore the near-by area and relax.  Either way you’ll enjoy being away from any other tourists.

Day 3: Wake up to a great view and fresh brewed coffee then more time to explore before your helicopter pick up.  After a short flight back you’ll be ready to head back to Anchorage to end your adventure.
