Portage Glacier

Don't forget to visit Portage Glacier, located about an hour outside of Anchorage, during Alaska's spring months. The extra hours of daylight allow for more time to explore the trails and beauty the glacier has to offer. This is a great time of year to hike across the lake to get a close-up view.
