Default Seward - transportation to Exit Glacier

We are gong to spend a day in Seward and then taking the train to Anchorage at 6:00 pm. Has anyone else done this? Is it possible to get transportation to Exit Glacier, which I understand is a few miles away? Any other recommendations? Since we are taking the train at 6, we don't really want to rent a car for the day. . .

Thanks,
Melissa

try www.alaskaecotours.net to see if they still offer a shuttle to Exit. There is also the cab option- the glacier is about 14 miles from Seward.

...plus a $5.00/person entry fee. You may want to rethink renting a car instead of the train because the drive to Anchorage is gorgeous with many turnout possibilities. Also, Big Game Alaska, a wildlife refuge, is terrific (it's a block north of the Portage Glacier exit).

I greatly prefer animals in the wild and would not consider Big Game Alaska. For clairfication the train scenery is superior to the Seward Highway- having done both.

Several folks have suggested Big Game Alaska. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it and thought it was one of the highlights of
the Seward to Anchorage trip. They let children bottle feed some baby moose. You are close enough to touch baby deer, moose, elk, bison, caribou, and Sitka Deer. They have a baby porcupine, baby grisly bear, an eagle, and owls. You can stroll through the park/reserve or drive through it. Although we too enjoy seeing animals in the wild, this was a treat to see so many animals this close up. For $5/person, it's a bargain. We give it a hardy 2 thumbs up.

Note: The park rehabilitates/keeps these animals because they are damaged and cannot survive in the wild anymore.
