Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your tour begins as you board your deluxe motorcoach for a scenic drive along the Seward Highway to Portage Glacier, part of the Chugach National Forest located south of Portage Lake. Next, you'll board the MV Ptarmigan, the only boat operating on Portage Lake, for an unforgettable one-hour cruise across iceberg-dotted Portage Lake. Cruising across Portage Lake, you'll quickly see why Portage Glacier is one of Alaska's most popular attractions. Standing just 300 yards from a relic of the Ice Age, you'll watch for fractures of ice break off the glacier and crash into the water below. Finish up with a stop at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center for the opportunity to view wildlife up close.
