Very fun excursion with 2 wonderful guides (both were young women who were helpful and full of knowledge about the glacier). There were 4 of us in our group (3 men, 1 woman), plus the 2 guides. A great time and highly recommended!

There simply aren't enough ways to express how amazing our Advanced Trek was on Matanuska Glacier! Our group of 8 was in agreement that this was the best thing we did on our entire trip through Alaska. Even before arriving, MICA was helpful in making adjustments so that our group could all be together on one hike/climb. Once there, the operation was top-notch and providing all the necessary gear (even boots for those who needed them!) was above and beyond. While the experience of hiking on the glacier was thrilling in itself, our guides, Scotty and Katie, were what made the day unforgettable! They were personable and engaged with our group, taking time to understand what type of experience we were looking for. They provided us with a great balance of glacier information, hiking to interesting features (the moulins, the crevasses, the serac), ice climbing, and safety. Scotty even set up a safe spot for me to be tethered at the top of a wall so I could capture awesome pictures of each of our group climbing up! Katie had all four kids in the group fascinated while she walked and talked to them about the different parts of the glacier and served them all with
