Sail between the frozen peaks and tumbling waterfalls of Portage Lake on this one-hour cruise. As the 80-foot-long mv Ptarmigan navigates the ice-filled Alaskan waters, passengers are close enough to massive glaciers to hear the splash of falling icebergs.

  • For the best views of the fjord and Kenai Mountains, sit on the right side of the motor coach during the drive down Turnagain Arm. If you're keen on Dall sheep, claim the left side of the coach and watch the cliffs above the road.
  • Be sure to ride the tram at Alyeska Resort on the trip back to town.
  • The gift shop in the Begich Boggs Visitor Center has one of the best selections of Alaskan natural history literature you'll find.
