Ice = Nice!

In Adventure, Alaska Travelgram, Cruises by scott

Now that it’s hot again in Anchorage, catch a glacier cruise just 54 miles from downtown Anchorage on Portage Glacier Cruises. Sail on the mighty m/v Ptarmigan to the face of Portage Glacier. Oooh, it’s active, too. This is just a one-hour cruise, but you’ll get up close and personal with the glacier. BrinIceg your camera!!

ptarmigan-1Time to get on board the Alaska Railroad and ride 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.
