Alaska 2021!
Aug 2021 • Family
Once in a lifetime opportunity to hike on a glacier and drink glacier water direct from the source! Absolutely gorgeous!

Leave the long drive to the tour company so you can relax and enjoy the scenery.

Phenomenal service and AMAZING adventures!
Jun 2021
I had a phenomenal experience with Greatland Adventures! I planned a last minute trip to Alaska, and Steve assisted with mapping out an itinerary that would allow me to go on all the excursions I was hoping to do. When a flight-seeing tour was cancelled last minute due to weather, I called Steve, and he very quickly managed to rebook me on a different excursion with transportation the same day so that I could have another opportunity to try the flight the next day. Couldn't have been happier with the attentiveness and individual assistance and the planned excursions were fabulous. I appreciated the small group sizes. My highest recommendation!!

Glacier Climbing
Sep 2019 • Couples
Amazing tour. Small group of 6 with great guide Bill.
Climb was not arduous, more clamoring around on the ice with crampons provided. Weather clear, not cold and no rain as predicted. Very scenic drive from Anchorage. Lunch provided at the Long Rifle Lodge was delicious with many choices off the menu included. Would definitely recommend this tour ( we are over 60!)

AMAZING EXPERIENCE!
Aug 2019 • Friends
Don’t miss the Mantanuska Glacier Tour with Greatland Adventures! Brad and Sydney made our tour unforgettable! Their knowledge, concern for safety, and enthusiasm made our day memorable. They are not only highly experienced in hiking the glacier but guided us in taking the most incredible photos! Thank you Brad, Sydney and the entire staff of Greatland for making my stay in Alaska so magical!

Aug 2019 • Couples
This trip was AMAZING!! Brad was our guide and he was super helpful. Our group asked lots of questions and he answer all of them which is a plus when visiting a place for the first time. Not only we got a history lesson but we got super awesome recommendations on where to go eat, buy gifts and just to get a cup of coffee. He picked us up from our hotel and dropped us back all safe and sound. Matanuska Glacier was out of this world. The views, the history, the everything. If you are coming to Anchorage you have to go to Matanuska and specially with this guys because the are super cool and super EPIC!!! 😊

Best experience ever
We were so glad to take this tour, our wonderful guide Sydney picked us up in our hotel and the adventure began. The views in the way to the glaciar are very beautiful and once we got there and walk to the glacier we knew we made a fantastic decision. Walking on the glacier was really an amazing experience and our guide was very knowledgeable and took care of us in every step of the way. Then we have a good lunch and the return. Very recommend
