If this is your first time visiting Alaska, a cruise should definitely make the list of top priorities.  It’s at Portage Glacier Tour & Cruise here you’ll see what Alaska is really all about.  If you’ve never been on a cruise before, you’re in for a pleasant surprise.  If you stay in town, you’ll soon find out that it’s hard to really see a lot of Alaska due to its utter remoteness.  Therefore, cruises become a great way to truly take in the scenery that is otherwise hard to get to.  Many of Alaska’s natural wonders are not accessible by foot, so a cruise is a perfect way to catch all the important sights without doing all that hoofing around.  Drift town the Seward Highway and see the glaciers firsthand and up close.  This cruise sails right alongside of Portage Glacier, the top glacier in all of Alaska.  Glaciers up close are overwhelming and beautiful, and are not to be missed during your stay in Anchorage.  Sections of the cruise are also narrated, so you can get a healthy amount of history in with your stunning scenery.  If it’s chilly out (and it probably will be), the cruise provides a covered lounge that still allows you to see the trip’s highlights.  There is also an open-air observation deck for all those packing parkas.  The tour stops at Alyeska Ski Resort for lunch, so meals are taken care of.  If you have extra time, take the tram up to the top of Mt. Alyeska and take in the stunning panoramic view of the area.  The tour runs from May to September, so be sure and plan your trip accordingly!  The Portage Glacier Cruise and Tour is simply one of the best ways to see Portage Glacier, so book your reservations today!
