Returns to original departure point
Your guide will conveniently pick you up from your Anchorage area hotel, where you'll then depart at 10am for the drive toward Portage Valley. Hugging the edge of the Turnagain Arm, you'll see for for yourself why the Seward Highway is America's most scenic road, as mountains rise up straight from the water and you weave through glacially-carved valleys. To capture the stunning natural scenery, you'll stop at spots like Beluga Point to snap a couple of photos, and keep an eye out for moose, dall sheep, eagles, and other wildlife.
The animal sightings continue when you arrive at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. The Center’s mission is to provide care and rehabilitation for injured and orphaned wildlife, and animals who won't survive in the wild are given refuge here on center's 140 acres. Here you can safely observe some of Alaska's largest land animals, including moose, bison, elk, deer, caribou, bears, and muskox. There are also a number of birds of prey and smaller species of mammals, and during the spring and summer months, visitors can often witness the rehabilitation of orphaned baby animals.
By 2pm, the tour ends when you're driven back to your Anchorage area hotel. (actual return time may vary)

Scott started our tour with a smile. The Coach was clean and comfortable. There were 10 family members. We listened and learned and Scott also encouraged questions as well. We saw a lot of beautiful scenery and learned about the environment. The Animal Conservation Center was impressive. We really saw a lot of different animals.
I was very disappointed in the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. It was very run-down ... dilapidated cages ... roads in poor condition ... animals cooped up, etc. You can tour down Seward Parkway all by yourself and see everything the guide showed. Save your money - poor choice on my part.
This tour is great to see some of these animals like the moose, bears, Fox etc. on the way to the conservation centre along Turnagain Arm, its a great site to spot whales near the shore during the high tides. Our guide was very knowledgeable and offered a lot of info on the whole journey.
Got to see the wild life sanctuary it was nice, it drizzle most of the time and the clouds are grey in Alaska, so I purchased a rain coat that helps towards the wild life.
