Portage Glacier

portageglacier_insetAt the head of Portage Valley, about twelve miles south of Alyeska Resort, at the end of scenic Turnagain Arm, lies the Begich Boggs Visitor Center.

Living glaciers continue to carve the landscape and shape the life on the Chugach National Forest. Built on the remnants of a terminal moraine left by Portage Glacier, the Visitor Center is staffed with Forest Service interpreters available to answer questions, assist with trip planning, and provide programs on the historical and natural wonders of the valley.

The award-winning film, "Voices from the Ice" is shown hourly and provides a spectacular view of many glaciers and wildlife. The Visitor Center currently houses exhibits demonstrating "glaciers on the move" with insight into the retreat of Portage glacier. Although Portage Glacier is no longer visible from the Visitor Center, due to its retreat, the face of the glacier is still partially in Portage Lake.

Hiking trails are available in the area, follow signs in the parking lot area.
