Matanuska Glacier Overnight Camping Tour

person gives peace sign over crevasse

After a good nights sleep on the glacier this guest poses for a picture over an endless crevasse.

Imagine spending all day exploring magnificent features of blue glacier ice. Simultaneously, in the most remote and private areas of the Matanuska Glacier. First, taking in scenic views from the helicopter passenger seat as you soar over the valley onto the ice, far from the crowds. Your professional ice guides then lead you to their favorite features on this 27 mile long valley glacier. In contrast to the other explorations offered on the glacier, this one becomes quite different with a glacier overnight experience on the ice!

From Dusk to Dawn

The ice adventure during the day is up to you. Explore and build on your ice climbing skills or take in the beauties with a trek around glacial features. Perfect picture opportunities are infinite out there. Be sure to check out the options you have with the activities MICA Guides provides. Typically this is where a day on the ice would end, not with this glacier overnight tour.

Sleeping on the Matanuska Glacier

Glacier Overnight beverages

There is nothing like fresh food and crisp drinks to welcome you back to camp after a long day on the ice.

Enjoy the sunset or glow of the midnight sun with drinks and a bonfire on the ice. As you warm up and wind down, your guides will prepare a hot and delicious meal to be enjoyed.

After a gourmet dinner you will find your way into a luxurious canvas tent to keep you warm and cozy for the night. This accommodation comes with plush bedding, slippers, and robes to relax into after a long day. Make sure to grab a view of the stars out here if you can. This is one of the best places around to take in a pristine night sky or maybe pull your eye covers on for the midnight sun. No matter the season, this trip intertwines luxury with adventure while camping on the Matanuska, creating an epic experience.

After a good night’s sleeping on the glacier you may find yourself waking up to a brilliant sunrise. Enjoy a fresh cup of coffee right on the ice. After you and your guides enjoy a full breakfast you will be soaring on your way back to base by helicopter again. This fully immersive experience is great for those looking for high adventure or maybe just a relaxing time at glacier camp with some of the best views around.
