Anchorage day trip: Get up close and personal with a glacier

Portage Glacier

If you are visiting Anchorage, Alaska doing a land trip you can still find yourself face to face with a beautiful blue and white living glacier. Many think that to enjoy a glacier view, you have to be on one of those expensive Alaska cruises. But I found out differently. On a trip to Anchorage (I flew in), I found that there was a great little day trip where I could get up close and personal with a deep blue glacier. Check out the Portage Lake glacier cruises.
