Trip Itinerary - 6 Hours

Arrive in Whittier and transfer to our vehicle to begin your 6-hour adventure. Enjoy beautiful mountain vistas and the drive along the Seward Highway.  This road is considered to be America’s most beautiful and scenic road, crossing mountain passes and majestic valleys. Along the way we will try to spot moose, Dall sheep, eagles and other wildlife.  We will make a lunch stop in Girwood, at one of our favorite cafes. On our way towards Anchorage, we will make a couple of stops for photo opportunities at Beluga Point and Bird Point.

We will visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center opened to the public in 1993. It is located on 140 acres at the southern edge of Turnagain Arm and the entrance to Portage Valley. The center’s mission is to provide care and rehabilitation for injured and orphaned wildlife and to provide wildlife education and awareness. Animals that are unable to be released or survive in the wild are given refuge in the center's spacious habitats. Here people can safely get close, observe and photograph some of Alaska's largest land animals, including moose, bison, elk, deer, caribou, bears muskox, small mammals and birds of prey. During spring and summer, visitors can often witness the rehabilitation of orphaned baby animals of various species.

After an informative visit through the park with the largest of Alaska's wild animals, your tour will continue on to Anchorage with one more stop where we will ascend the Chugach Mountains for amazing and panoramic views of the Turnagain arm and beyond!
