Portage Glacier and Portage Lake are about 50 miles south of Anchorage, Alaska.  Take the Seward Highway south frim Anchorage along the Turnagain Arm of the Cook inlet for abiut 40 miles, then turn onto Portal Glacier Rd. for about 8 miles to Portage Lake.  There you board a cruise boat to the glacier.  In addition to the Glacier, Portage Lake has several waterfalls which are caused by glacier melt.
