ALASKA GUIDED TRAIN TOURS

Alaska has very few roads, so there are many wilderness locations one can only access by air or train (or a 5 day walk!) In partnership with Alaska Railroad, Ascending Path offers guided hiking, paddling and climbing at Spencer Whistle-Stop. This is an amazing Glacier location to experience and learn about blue ice up close and personal on our full or 1/2 day excursions!

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. There are several train and tour options to fit your schedule and interest.
