Iceberg Hike at Spencer Glacier Whistle Stop by Train from Anchorage
Hold an Iceberg on this Spencer Glacier Hike
In partnership with Alaska Railroad, your guides offer hiking from the Spencer Glacier Whistle Stop along Spencer Lake to experience and learn about blue ice, up-close-and-personal!
The Spencer Glacier is located just South of Portage Valley and the Turnagain Arm in the Kenai Mountains and the Chugach National Forest. It is an entirely off-the-road system, so you will ride the train from Anchorage with breathtaking views of glaciers and towering alpine peaks.
At the Whistle Stop, the small group of 10 or fewer disembarks and boards a van for a short ride to the lake edge. The distance from the start of the hike to the edge of the Glacier is about 2 miles of flat Forest Service-maintained trails. The 3 hours spent hiking includes many photo and rest stops.
There are no refunds. All sales are final.
