We had a blast! My first time zip lining and it won't be my last. After the initial scare of leaping off the platform, it was so much fun. The crew was helpful and courteous with all of us who were a little afraid of heights! Would do It again in a heartbeat

We really didn't know what to expect and were surprised by the uniqueness of the hike. There was no way we were going to get the same experience by doing the hike on our own. You definitely need the equipment to make it out past the starting point. Erik, our guide, was fascinating to listen to and we learned a... More

Our guide went out of his way to make sure we were safe and had an exciting time. Photos are well worth it if you can split the price with another climber. Tip them good. They deserve it

Our guide Emily was very knowledgeable and helped us understand the basic mechanics of glacier formation and movement, all while making sure we stayed as safe as we could while walking on a glacier. The experience was a highlight of our trip to Alaska. They provided needed equipment (crampons and helmets) and Emily worked with us to make sure we... More

Our family did not expect too much out of The Glacier Walk. We thought that it would be like walking on a bunch of snow. Well, we were proven completely wrong. The Glacier walk is truly amazing experience. It was highlight of our trip. Theoretically one could take unguided walk on the Matanuska Glacier. But i think it is un-advisable... More

A group of us did the 4-hour hike on Matanuska Glacier with Mica Guides, and were very happy with the experience. Our guides were knowledgeable about glaciers and geology, taught us a variety of basic techniques for using crampons, and were simply fun people. Everyone found the decision to go on the glacier hike to be an awesome experience, because... More
