The smarter way to travel from Anchorage to Seward
During our scenic drive down Turnagain Arm, your guide will point out possible wildlife like sheep, mountain goats, beluga whales, and eagles. We'll make a photo stop at the famous Beluga Point for some beautiful views and a great backdrop for stunning photography!
Next, we'll visit the quaint town of Girdwood for the aerial tram ride up the longest double black diamond ski slope in North America. From the top, you can view several glaciers, the northern-most temperate rainforest, and on select days visit the Roundhouse Museum. This museum is perched on the mountainside and surrounded by one continuous viewing deck for your viewing pleasure.
After descending the tram, we'll stop for a complimentary lunch. Next, visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, located on 140 acres at the southern edge of Turnagain Arm. The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center provides wildlife education, awareness, rehabilitation for Alaska's wildlife. Get close, safely observe and photograph some of Alaska's largest land animals, including moose, bison, elk, deer, caribou, bears, and musk ox. Our guests also enjoy seeing small mammals like lynx, and stunning birds of prey such as bald and golden eagles.
Lastly, we'll stop at Exit Glacier. An eight-mile drive off the main road reveals a spectacular vantage point, and a short, easy walk provides a close-up and personal view of a magnificent glacier. This will give you a "real Alaska" experience!
Note: for a round trip, add the Seward to Anchorage bus or the Seward to Anchorage train.
