Mat-Su Convention & Visitors Bureau
Flightsee around Denali, North America's tallest peak, and land at base camp. Walk on Alaska's largest road accessible glacier. Mush a team of Iditarod huskies - your Alaska adventure begins in the Mat-Su Valley, just an hour north of Anchorage and the gateway to Denali. The Mat-Su Valley has everything visitors desire - mountains, glaciers and wildlife. Travel north on the Glenn Highway National Scenic Byway and visit the town of Palmer, or continue to Matanuska Glacier for a truly memorable experience. Take the Parks Highway north to Denali country - stop in the towns of Wasilla, Willow and Talkeetna. Or, base your stay on one of our many events, including the Alaska State Fair in August or the start of Iditarod in early March. See www.alaskavisit.com for a complete calendar of events.
