Matanuska Glacier is a 27-mile beast of a glacier tucked away in Alaska’s Chugach Mountain Range. It’s the largest glacier accessible by car in the country, but things get even more exciting if you book a tour to walk across this glacial landscape.
Getting up close and personal with this glacier is the best way to explore its blue crevasses and white ice up against the Alaskan wilderness. At about two hours from Anchorage, it’s also a pretty easy day trip from a city you’ll likely visit on Alaska trips anyway.
This guide will share everything about visiting the Matanuska Glacier on your next visit to Alaska, including whether you need to book a tour to make it happen.
