Alaska Railroad Adventure Tours
Alaska has very few roads, so there are many wilderness locations one can only access by air or train, and our Alaska Railroad adventure tours get you off the beaten path and into the wilderness. In partnership with the Alaska Railroad, Ascending Path offers guided adventures tours at the Spencer Glacier Whistle Stop. This is an amazing Glacier location to experience and learn about blue ice up close and personal on our adventure tours.
The Spencer Glacier is located just South of Portage Valley and the Turnagain Arm in the Kenai Mountains and Chugach National Forest. It is entirely off the road system, so we ride a train from Anchorage, Girdwood or Portage with breathtaking views of glaciers and towering alpine peaks.
Glacier Adventures for All Activity Levels
For an easy activity, choose our Iceberg Viewing Walk along a well maintained trail. Your guide will lead to Spencer Lake to walk among and pick up icebergs. For more adventure, explore Spencer Lake in a kayak and paddle among icebergs with your guide.
