Since 1995, Ascending Path has been guiding people in the wilderness to see the ever changing glaciers of Alaska. In partnership with the Alaska Railroad, Ascending Path provides their most popular family friendly day tour, Iceberg Kayaking on Spencer Lake. It's the closest Iceberg Kayaking to Anchorage where you will kayak past iceberg giants on the secluded lake with your kayaking guide. Ride a train, sea kayak, see icebergs and a glacier up close all in one day! To check off 5 bucket list Alaskan experiences in a day, Ascending Path also operates the guided EPIC tour at Spencer Whistle Stop! With your world-class glacier guide, ride a train, sea kayak, helicopter to Spencer Glacier for glacier hiking and/or ice climbing and then get another scenic helicopter flight over the Chugach Mountains. The EPIC tour departs both Girdwood or Anchorage (with round trip train). This multi-sport tour is a full day that allows several hours to hike with crampons with your world-class glacier guide to explore crevasses, ice caves, tubes, blue pools or try ice climbing. This popular tour has very few seats available per day in order to provide the highest quality experience. Also available by train at the Spencer Whistle Stop, are Ascending Path's family friendly Iceberg Viewing Hikes that are guided trail hikes. In the company of a naturalist, you will: Taste wild plants, Identify animal behaviors, Enjoy stories about Alaskan history and Touch an iceberg! Ascending Path has a low client to guide ratio so you can experience all that the area has to offer without huge group sizes. As a boutique mom & pop, Alaskan owned and operated guide service, Ascending Path's award-winning eco day tour company continues to provide trips of a lifetime! Come out with Ascending Path guides to experience what Trip Advisor, the NY Times, CNN and Nat. Geo all have rated as one of the top guide services in Alaska.
