Venture on a spectacular cruise across Portage Lake, home to Portage Glacier, on this half-day tour. Travel south from Anchorage along the scenic Seward Highway. Next, board the mv Ptarmigan, the only boat operating on Portage Lake, for an unforgettable one-hour cruise across an iceberg-dotted landscape. 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. Portage Glacier is Alaska’s second most visited attraction and once you see the pristine views in person, you’ll understand why. On the way back to Anchorage, stop at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center where you’ll tour this great wildlife sanctuary.
