Enjoy one of the most scenic drives in the country, The Turnagain Arm Tour
Today, you will join the Turnagain Arm Tour, one of the most popular full-day tours in Girdwood, Alaska. After breakfast at the hotel, you will depart for Mt. Alyeska. As you travel along the Turnagain Arm along the Seward Highway, one of the most scenic drives in the country, your private guide will narrate the stories of the area. We must warn you in advance; you will be amazed at the astonishing views as you ride a scenic tram to the top of the mountain! As you continue your journey, your next stop will be Portage Valley, which includes many wonders of nature, such as a frozen waterfall, Portage Lake, and hanging glaciers. After, you will stop for lunch. For our last leg of the journey, we will explore the Alaska Wildlife Conservative Center, where your guide will introduce you to the animals that live in Alaska, such as owls, elks, moose, bears, and many more. Before finishing the day, you will take a cruise (1 hour) to the face of Portage Glacier. Throughout the cruise, you will learn about the glacier, watch ice calve into the water and learn about global warming and how it affects the area. After the cruise, the tour will be over, and you will be transferred back to your resort.
