Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    After morning pickup at your Anchorage hotel, travel along the Seward Parkway towards Portage Valley.

    Your knowledgeable guide shares fascinating commentary about the wildlife of Turnagain Arm and the Chugach National Forest area. Stop at the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge, Beluga Point and Bird Point to get different vantage points on the Turnagain Arm, and look for wildlife such as moose, caribou and eagles. The Turnagain Arm is a narrow branch of the Cook Inlet, which connects to the Gulf of Alaska.

    Visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, a wildlife reserve located at the edge of Portage Valley. On the sprawling refuge, injured and orphaned wild animals are rehabilitated, including large Alaskan land animals like grizzly bears, wood bison, caribou, moose, musk ox and deer. View the animals up close and learn about their backstory as you walk around the large wildlife center.

    Your 4-hour tour ends with return to your Anchorage hotel.
