Spencer Glacier

Embark on a Spencer Glacier Discovery! Receive a private greeting upon disembarkation of your ship. Your private driver-guide will provide recommendations for a morning of tailor-made sightseeing. In the early afternoon board the world-famous Alaska Railroad for a short but stunning journey into the Chugach Mountains. Upon arrival at Spencer Glacier you will board your private raft for a gentle float among icebergs on Spencer Lake. The glacier carved valley is capped in lush vegetation and opens to the face of Spencer Glacier. Your guide will share the history of this area. You may choose to spend the afternoon exploring the lake or leave the glacier and continue your sightseeing down the Place River. At the conclusion of your tour return to Portage by train where your private vehicle and driver will be waiting to complete your journey to Anchorage.
