Overview

Take a shuttle 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 the Anchorage Visitors Center, 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. Look for beluga whales coming in from Cook Inlet, try and spot eagles nesting in evergreen treetops, and spot Dall sheep framed against the black backdrop of steep mountainsides. Your tour includes stops at Beluga Point, Portage Valley, Potter Marsh and a brief walk in the rainforest guest have told us they felt like they were “walking into another world” “enchanting” “spiritual” so you won’t want to miss this experience.

Wildlife and Glaciers with a walk in the Rainforest

I was lucky enough to get Chris as a guide on this tour as well and, as usual, he was patient and informative. We visited Beluga Point, the wildlife conservation area, and the glaciers, stopping for food at a delicious pizza parlor. The weather wasn't a bit uncooperative but he made sure we still had the opportunity to see points of interest and of course take plenty of photos.

. We got lost on the way to our pick up point and the driver got on the phone with me and guided me in. So wonderful and beyond. He was also so knowledgeable about the area. He was very easy going and you could tell he loved his job. My granddaughter and I had a great time and would recommend this trip to everyone. Love that we were able to see the bulga whales.
