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 with one continuous viewing deck for your viewing pleasure.
After descending the tram, we'll stop for lunch (included) at our favorite Bake Shop for bottomless homemade soup, sourdough bread, beverages, and dessert. 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 and awareness, and care and 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 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!

I cannot praise this tour enough. Our tour guide was so incredibly knowledgeable of both Anchorage and Seward and really helped get us into that Alaskan feel. She stopped at several locations and allowed for many photo ops. The tram ride up the resort was nice. We saw a wild bear and her 3 cubs. We went in early June and there was still plenty of snow to play in at the top of the mountain. The lunch was great. Soup was good. Everything about this tour was great. If you may not go to Alaska again, take this for your transportation to the cruise port over the train. We are so glad we did!
