Incredible land, snow and icescapes can be seen in a daylong tour thanks to Chugach Adventures, Alpine Air and Alaska Rail’s Chugach Explorer. Comet Heli Hiking and Spencer Rafting Tour will excite, surprise and humble the most seasoned hiker.
Soar high above the Girdwood Valley in an R-44 helicopter. Land just below Comet Glacier at 2,000 ft. Hike down the zig-zagging mountain trail while marveling at Spencer Glacier’s size and splendor.
Raft onto Spencer Lake and go through a labyrinth of uniquely shaped, iridescent blue icebergs before floating down Placer River to the riverbank whistle stop and the Glacier Discovery Train. See the unbelievable spender of the Chugach Range for yourself.
