Awesome recommended tour!
Jul 2021 • Family
This is a great tour! We can customize this tour for small kids too. Our tour guide Phil was very good guiding us up and around the loop of the glacier. We were able to di this safely with our 6 yr old. Breathtaking glacier views and pictures! Highly recommended this tour for all!

Manatuska Glacier Hike
Jan 2021 • Family
This was a highlight for our trip to Alaska. The hike along the Manatuska glacier was truly spectacular. Our guide Bill was extremely knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the glacier as well as the surrounding area. Seeing a glacier up close was a memory we will never forget.

Great day !
Jul 2019 • Friends
Today was awesome !! Sydney was our guide and she was simply amazing. The weather was perfect. This is not very technical, but you do have to wear snow cleats, and need to pay attention to your guide. The glacier is a photographers paradise, so bring your camera. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Alaska.

Glacier tour with Bill
Jun 2019 • Family
We had a private tour with Bill. It was great. As a former school teacher he was great with kids. He picked us up promptly at the hotel and was very informative on Alaska history and the glacier. We hiked over 3 miles and had a very nice lunch. We started at 830 and were back around 4:15. The views on the ride are great too.

I would highly recommend.

Wonderful glacier tour
May 2019 • Business
My coworker and I came to Anchorage for a work related trip but arrived a few days earlier to explore Anchorage. Our tour guide was named Bill and he was an amazing tour guide! He picked us up promptly and was very friendly and informative. He answered all our questions and was great about stopping the van and having us take some pictures of moose we saw on the road. The Matanuska Glacier was so beautiful and he made sure we were well equipped for the hike and was very knowledgeable about glacier formations. It was nice we were there on the off season (1st week of May). We got our own private tour and had the glacier to ourselves for over an hour before people starting coming in. Other tours would not have taken just 2 people but Greatland Adventures was wonderful about it. We got a nice lunch that was included on our package after the hike and great tips for activities and restaurants to go elsewhere in Anchorage. I would definitely recommend them again!

Great hike!
Jun 2018 • Family
We hiked the Matanuska glacier on our way from Anchorage to Glennallen. Our guide, Bill, was awesome! He was very knowledgeable about Alaska, the glacier and all of the wildlife and scenery we saw. He brought crampons and hiking sticks and led us up and onto the glacier, picking paths that were safe and very scenic. Bill took us to some unique areas to see different aspects of the glacier and different types of surfaces. We had a delicious lunch at a local restaurant overlooking the glacier. It was an amazing experience - prompting our 18-year old to say it was the coolest thing she had ever done! We highly recommend this hike and tour. Thanks, Bill!

Amazing Hike!
We booked many different tours from Anchorage and this one was by far the BEST! From the professional and friendly staff to the ongoing communication. We also booked the Northern Lights tour which was canceled due to weather conditions. I appreciated the integrity of Great Adventures to not take our money and go forward with the trip no matter what the weather - beware of other companies that do! Glacier was beautiful and guide knowledgeable and accommodating allowing us to take our time and lots of pictures! Overall best trip of the vacation!

THE BEST! THE only way to visit Alaska!!!
Mar 2018 • Friends
I want to sincerely applaud the members of Greatland Adventures! They made me and my friend's trip to Anchorage one of the most amazing experiences ever in our lives. We had the pleasure of attending both the Matanuska Glacier tour and the Northern Lights tour.

For the glacier tour, we were picked up from our AirBNB with no problem right on time in a heated bus. The bus was abuzz with other people anxious to discover Alaska and hike a glacier. Our guides Sydney and Sean were so sweet, smart, and took excellent care of us. They even accommodated the few of us that were ill prepared in regards to clothing by providing "banana pants" and fur hats. SO cool! I was toasty even on a giant frozen lake! We met some really nice folks from Tennessee as well who we shared laughs and photos with. Lunch was even included at a cute lodge with views of a snowy paradise.

Then we also got to experience the Aurora Borealis tour with Steven. Steven is a treasure as well, picked us up at our lodging, and showed us the magic of the Northern Lights. We were all well educated about the lights before we got there and even had a chance to have a pitstop at a gas station to use the toilet and grab a coffee. We even saw the lights that night TWICE! Thank you, Steve!

The memories we made will last a lifetime and we are so happy we chose Greatland Adventures. I am telling any and everyone that plans to visit Anchorage to book through them. No question!

A super amazing view and a great tour guide
Mar 2018 • Friends
The tour was private and included hotel pick-up service, which is so convenient for our guys. Bruce is a so professional and friendly guide, he could tell us the generation of the glacier and how was it move. He is also very responsible to keep us safety and patient to talk about everything. It is a wonderful tour. And I highly recommend your guys to participate it.

BUCKET LIST TRIP!!!
Mar 2018 • Friends
This was an epic excursion! First of all, hotel pick-up (and drop-off) is included in the cost of the trip. Second, the bus was packed with water, snacks, HEAT and all the equipment you could possibly need. Sean and Sydney were wonderful resources/guides and made sure everyone was dressed appropriately before heading out on the glacier (they even passed out the break-n-shake hot packets for you to put in your pockets or under your hat!). Now the actual hike and cave discoveries were physical, but Sean and Sydney made sure everyone was safe, as warm as possible and you don't have to go into a cave if you don't want to, a guide will stay with you the whole time. lunch was also fabulous, the lodge cozy and overall a wonderful trip. It was definitely a highlight of my trip to Alaska!
