Ice. Nice.

On a hot day like today, it’s good to be cool. Just 54 miles from Anchorage, you can catch a cruise on the mighty m/v Ptarmigan. Cruise close to the face of Ptarmigan Portage Glacier and watch big chunks of ice fall into the lake! This is just a one-hour cruise but it’s fun for up-close views of an active glacier. And yes, it’s COOL! Click here and look for the $5 coupon!


Ride the rails to Denali this summer from Anchorage or Fairbanks. Spend two nights--that gives you time to take the LONG tour (Tundra Wildlife Tour) into the park, plus a raft trip on the Nenana River.

Gray Line of Alaska features private rail cars (the McKinley Explorer). Full-dome viewing on top, with a nice restaurant on the lower level. GREAT way to ride on the Alaska Railroad. Your accommodations are near to the park entrance and all the activities: river rafting, flightseeing, guided hikes and more.

From Fairbanks, the cost is just $299 per person for three days/two nights. From Anchorage, it’s a little longer–so the cost is $399 per person–and that includes your rail and two nights’ accommodations.

Space is limited. Call (888)452-1737 today or check online for more details.
