Matanuska Glacier Overnight Luxury Camping

Imagine spending the 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 glacier guides then lead you to their favorite features on this 26 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!
