Portage Glacier

24 beoordelingen

If you’re staying in Anchorage and reading about the glaciers that are so much a part of Alaska, then head to Portage Glacier, just a little more than an hour outside of the city. Portage Glacier is truly worth the drive. Once you’re here, you can watch for huge chunks of ice to break away and crash into the lake.

Sitting inside the Chugach National Forest, Portage Glacier is breathtaking to say the least. You approach it by boat, and you’re rewarded with a stellar view of the glacier. The visitor center features a number of programs on the historical and natural wonders of the valley. A film, Voices from the Ice, provides a spectacular view of many glaciers and wildlife. The visitor center also houses exhibits demonstrating how glaciers move and gives insight into the retreat of Portage Glacier.
