Spencer Glacier Iceberg Float
This is an add on tour available only from the Spencer Glacier Whistle Stop, so you must also purchase rail transportation on board the Glacier Discovery train from Anchorage. Your experienced guides will board the train at Girdwood at 11:00am and find you on the train. Upon arrival at the Whistle Stop, your guides will transport you down a former mining roads to the pristine Spencer Lake. After your guides provide you with a safety orientation, you will begin your float trip with panoramic views of Spencer Glacier while your guide rows you up close and personal among the icebergs that dot the lake. Next, sit back and relax as your guide takes your raft down the Placer River through Class I or Class II rapids that are fun and appropriate for all ages. You should not get wet other than an occasional small splash. Take in the wilderness, keep your eye out for animal activity and view hanging glaciers and wildflowers and snap a photo or two before arriving at the river landing where you will re-board the Glacier Discovery train for your return trip to Anchorage.
Your trip includes professional guides, raingear, rubber boots and a light snack served in a small gold pan.
What To Wear
Dress warmly in layers as conditions around the icebergs can be chilly. Please bring thick socks (to wear with provided rubber boots), warm clothes (wear synthetic layers and bring a rain coat), warm hat and gloves. You may wish to bring binoculars and a camera if you have them.
