Tour Description

Departing from your hotel, this interesting tour travels south of Anchorage along the Seward Highway, one of only 13 United States highways featuring the designation of an “All-American Road.” The trip will be filled with chances to stop and savor the scenery and take photos as we drive Turnagain Arm’s winding roadway on the way to Girdwood and Alyeska Resort. Take an optional tram ride to the top of Mount Alyeska for lunch with a stunning view of the glacial valley below, then climb aboard the van for the short drive to Portage, where guests may choose to embark upon a one-hour cruise to hidden Portage Glacier. Icebergs are a large part of the cruise, so keep an eye out for those beautiful bergy bits!

After the cruise, visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, a 200-acre facility dedicated to preservation and protection of the state’s most iconic animals. See moose, bears, wolves, musk ox, and more as you walk or drive the beautiful property, any time of year. After meeting the animals, your guide will turn the van back to Anchorage, offering a narrated city tour that includes the best spots for dining and shopping. End this wonderful day of exploration with a return to your hotel.
