The Seward Highway is a National Scenic Highway, and for good reason! Almost immediately after your tour guide picks you up, you’ll learn why. Together we’ll drive from your hotel, down the Turnagain Arm to the aerial tram on Mt. Alyeska. At the top we will enjoy stunning panoramas (weather permitting) of the Alaska wilderness. From this height on a clear day we can view glaciers and the foothills of the Chugach Mountains where they meet the sea at Cook Inlet.
The next highlight is the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. This rescue center is home to bears, a musk ox herd, a wood bison herd that was once thought to be extinct, moose, elk, caribou, and more! Lunch is included at a local eatery in Girdwood, where we can experience some local culture.
If you pre-selected the upgraded tour, you will take the 1-hour Portage Glacier Cruise before heading back to Anchorage.
