EPIC TOUR: Train // Iceberg Kayak // Helicopter // Ice Trek

Ride Alaska Railroad to Spencer Whistlestop, Kayak with Icebergs, and Hike on a glacier via helicopter. Trek on the ice for 2 hours (on average) with a glacier guide and fly off with another helicopter flight back to Portage/Girdwood. Epic!

No previous glacier experience is necessary. Your guide will teach you how to walk in crampons and paddle a tandem kayak. However, this is a moderate to strenuous activity, so please be prepared for a full day of activity in most weather conditions.
