Art on the Lake: June 24

In Alaska Travelgram, Cruises by scott

Art on Lake LogoSPECIAL ART SAILING: Call Gray Line of Alaska (907)277-5581 and make plans to attend “Art on the Lake” on Portage Lake on Wed., June 24 (that’s coming up!!). Cruise on the mighty m/v Ptarmigan from Portage Glacier Cruises at 6:30pm. They are going to have an art show on the boat while artists paint, sculpt, weave or otherwise ply their craft.  Cost is $50. One painting will be raffled off. There will be live music, wine, food, etc. It will be a very nice event.

If you haven’t cruised on the Ptarmigan, it’s really a nice boat that helps you sneak right up on Portage Glacier! All the proceeds will go to support the Girdwood Center for Visual Arts.

Gray Line of Alaska is offering travelers a $500 discount on tours six days or longer. This includes self-drive tours to Valdez or Homer, rail tours, escorted tours and more! Call Gray Line at (800)544-2206 for more details on this special program.


Choose from several rail/accommodations specials, too. I like the three-day/two-night option to Denali from either Fairbanks or Anchorage. From Anchorage, the package includes two nights at Denali Park, plus roundtrip train transportation. The cost is $399 per person, double. From Fairbanks, the cost is just $299 per person. Other options are available, including a one-way package and one-night packages, too.

You really cannot overstate how much fun you will have on the train! Gray Line travelers enjoy the full-dome treatment with McKinley Explorer train cars. Call now or visit online for more details.
