Whittier to Anchorage, Tour and Transfer

Our adventure begins with a ride through the 2.5 mile Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel, the longest one-way train and vehicle tunnel in North America. The Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel is located 50 miles southeast of Anchorage, near Portage Glacier, and connects the port city of Whittier on Prince William Sound to the Seward Highway and Southcentral Alaska.

First we値l drive through Portage Valley, home to several hanging glaciers and beautiful alpine scenery. Depending on the season, we may be able to view salmon as they complete their lifecycle and spawn in one of the valley痴 rivers.

Then we値l visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, which opened to the public in 1993, and has been providing up close and personal Alaska wildlife experiences ever since. It is located on 140 acres at the southern edge of Turnagain Arm and the entrance to Portage Valley. The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center provides wildlife education and awareness, and care and rehabilitation for Alaska痴 wildlife. Get close, safely observe and photograph some of Alaska's largest land animals, including moose, bison, elk, deer, caribou, bears, and musk ox. Our guests also enjoy seeing small mammals like lynx, and stunning birds of prey, such bald and golden eagles.

For lunch we値l visit the quaint town of Girdwood and our favorite Bake Shop. Bottomless soup, sourdough bread, beverages, and dessert are all on the menu. After lunch, get ready for the aerial tram ride up the longest double black diamond ski slope in North America. From the top you can view several glaciers and the farthest northern reaches of a temperate rainforest that stretches from here all the way south to Northern California. On select days our guests visit the Roundhouse Museum. This mountainside museum features a panoramic viewing deck for incredible views.

Next we値l continue the scenic drive into Anchorage, along the Turnagain Arm, watching for wildlife and taking stops at scenic viewpoints. Upon arrival in Anchorage, between 2 and 3pm, you値l be transferred to your hotel or the airport.
