Located next to Anchorage, Palmer, and much more, the Chugach Mountains are home to some of Alaska’s most famous mountains, peaks, and slopes. Its unique climate makes it the largest subpolar ice field in North America, spawning several large glaciers scattered throughout its mountains and valleys.

Locals and visitors alike flock to the surrounding areas for all kinds of recreational adventures. Our Grand Glacier Tour will give you an incredible opportunity: to experience the marvelous views and sights with your head in the clouds.
Fun fact: The Chugach Mountains in Alaska are home to the largest national forest in the United States, the Chugach National Forest. With over 5,000,000 acres of land, the Chugach National Forest boasts an incredible diversity of wildlife, including grizzly bears, wolves, bald eagles, and a wide range of outdoor recreational opportunities for visitors. The forest is also home to the Prince William Sound, a stunningly beautiful fjord-like coastal region home to abundant marine life, including whales, otters, and sea lions.
