Matanuska Glacier Walk Tour - Anchorage, Alaska
After being picked up from your hotel, we'll make our way towards the Matanuska Glacier where you will spend over 2 hours directly on the glacier with a glacier guide by your side, learning how the Matanuska Glacier was born and how it shaped the landscape in the Matanuska Susitna Valley. Explore blue meltwater pools, the ice formations and deep crevasses.
Walking on ice is slippery fun, so our guests are equipped with a helmet, a walking stick and crampons that attach to your shoes. We require our guests to bring sturdy footwear and suggest that you bring an extra pair of socks.
Don't be surprised that your shoes get filthy with glacial flour. This glacial till is finely ground rock the glacier has created - it makes for great facials! This tour does require walking for about 2 hours. Our fully-guided transportation includes a pick up at your hotel in Anchorage as well as water and snacks in the touring vehicle.
We will also stop for lunch where we'll overlook the glacier while enjoying some yummy Alaskan fare.
This exciting tour departs from Anchorage, Alaska.

Episode 120, Part 2: Alaska Far Away, the story of the Matanuska Colonists
It’s not a chapter of history that’s well known in the United States, let alone to Alaskans -- the story of how 200 families from the Midwest, traveled 4,000 miles to Alaska, to start a new life in 1935, during the height of the Depression. They settled in an area near Palmer, and their stories have been documented in a film called, “Alaska Far Away.

앵커리지를 떠나 이번 여행의 마지막 종착지, 알래스카 남부 해안의 항구도시 수어드로 향했다. 수어드로 가는 길에 마타누스카 빙하에 들렀다. 마타누스카 빙하는 직접 걸으며 탐험을 할 수 있다. 빙하 탐험을 하기 위해서는 헬멧과 아이젠을 착용해야 한다. 알래스카에서 처음으로 빙하에 발을 내디뎠다. 빙하탐험 가이드는 거침없이 걸어간다. 그런데 울퉁불퉁하고 골이 패여 있는 빙하를 처음 밟아보는 나는 그 위를 걷는 게 쉽지 않았다. 멀리서 볼 때는 그 규모를 잘 가늠할 수 없었는데 가까이 가 보니 그 크기가 어마어마하다. 계곡을 따라 펼쳐진 빙하의 길이가 무려 43km에 달한다니, 하루 종일 걸어도 끝까지 갈 수 없을 것 같다. 여름이 되면 빙하 녹은 물이 크레바스 사이로 냇물처럼 흘러간다. 빙하수는 아무런 불순물이 없는 순수한 물이기 때문에 그냥 마셔도 된다. 그런데 이 빙하 역시 빠르게 줄어들고 있다고 한다. 갈수록 눈이 적게 오기 때문이다. “기온이 따뜻해지면서 눈이 많이 오지 않아 빙하를 밀어내지 못하게 되죠. 여기서 본 것처럼, 빙하가 녹고 있습니다. 매일 빙하 정상부가 2.5cm씩 녹아요. 1년이면 9m가 녹아요.” 빙하는 수십만, 수백만 년 전부터 있어왔다. 그런데 우리는 불과 몇 십 년 사이에 빙하를 없애고 있는 것은 아닐까, 씁쓸한 생각이 들었다.

Leaving Anchorage, I headed to the southern end of the trip, the southern coast of Alaska, to the port city of Suard. I stopped at Matanuska Glacier on the way to Suard. The Matanuska glacier can be explored on foot. Helmets and ezens must be worn to explore glaciers. He set foot in the glacier for the first time in Alaska. The glacier exploration guide walks unceasingly. By the way, when I first stepped on a glacier that was rugged and scored, it was not easy to walk on it. When I looked at it from a distance, I could not figure out the size of it. Glaciers stretching along the valley are about 43 km long, so you can not walk all day long. In the summer, the glacier water flows into the crevasse like a stream. Ice water is pure water without any impurities, so you can just drink it. However, this glacier is also rapidly declining. It is because it is getting less and less snow. As the temperature gets warmer, there is not a lot of snow, so we can not push the glacier. As you can see here, the glacier is melting. The top of the glacier every day melts by 2.5cm. In a year, 9 meters are melted. Glaciers have been around for hundreds of thousands of millions of years. But we have bitter thoughts that we have been removing glaciers in just a few decades.
