What an amazing experience. Hiking the glacier was all I expected and more. The sheer beauty and majesty of the glacier and its surroundings was incredible. I would highly recommend hiking the Matanuska Glacier.
This Glacier is massive and beautiful and the best part is that you're free to explore it up close and personal as much as you want. While we saw many glaciers in Alaska, this was my favorite because of those factors. Now about the cost....More
This is quite the drive to get to. About 2 hours from Anchorage and the last part is on a single lane dirt road. Once you get to the bottom it is a $30 charge per person to access the glacier or $100 per person...More
One of the things I wanted to do when going to Alaska was walk on a glacier. My prior time I had been on a cruise ship but this time with a couple of extra days in Anchorage I decided to book a day trip....More

First, let me say that this is a MUST DO if you are near A

We took a guided tour and had a fabulous experience. You CAN walk/hike it on your own (with admission to the park) but...More

To my knowledge, Matanuska is the only one you can really walk on in that area. It's pretty easy to access, unfortunately it is the opposite direction of Denali. It's about 2 hours from Anchorage going west. But it is so worth it and I would definitely recommend a going with a tour group.
