Tour Details

Overview

Take a tour along the glacier-carved shores of the Turnagain Arm, scoping out craggy cliffs for Dall sheep and scanning the water for surfacing beluga whales. On this guided excursion, take a scenic drive outside of Anchorage and spend some time visiting orphaned animals at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center.

Get picked up from your Anchorage hotel, where you can hop in a comfortable shuttle and let your guide plot a course to to the south. Pass through Chugach State Park, along waterfront roads that offer sweeping views of the Turnagain Arm.

  • This is a great tour! Ben is very knowledgeable and takes good care of his clients. Be sure to add on the glacier cruise, it is phenomenal. Take a coat, the wind is cold on the top deck of the boat.

  • Although the trip down the turnagain arm was quite scenic, there was no wildlife to see and considering the road traveled was heavily used it is doubtful that you would see much in the way of wildlife. The self guided hike to Bryson glacier was enjoyable, but there was little else. There was a stop at a wildlife rescue center that was dusty and crowded but we did see bear, kind of a zoo setting. The guide/driver was pleasant but offered very little in the way of narration or information. The van was new and clean and had great viewing windows for the scenery. Not a bad experience but not what i would book if you were wanting primarily a wildlife experience.

  • My tour guide was very knowledgeable an excitited about what he was doing!! I believe that and #39;s amazing to have someone that and #39;s not press for time is welling to enjoy an be amaze by nature just as much as some of us were!! I had a great time an learned a lot!
