If you haven’t done it, make plans to sail on the mighty Ptarmigan, which sails several times each day on Portage Lake, just 54 miles from Anchorage along the glorious Turnagain Arm on the way to Seward. It’s just a one-hour cruise, but it takes you RIGHT UP CLOSE to the Portage Glacier. Check it out! Click here for a $5 coupon!
Plus, 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.
