Daily guided tours to see the real Alaska
This is an extension of our ever-so-popular Turnagain Arm Tour. Dress in layers and let us know what gear you feel you might be missing to stay warm in the great outdoors. We will depart from your Anchorage hotel and head south on the Seward Highway for an amazing scenic drive. Once in Girdwood, we’ll take the tram up the mountain for the view of the valley below. You’ll be able to see the inlet, the valley, and the snowy meadows where we will snowshoe. Next we descend on the tram and strap on the snowshoes. Heading off into the forest, your guide will talk about the history of snowshoes and the technique to using them successfully. This is a one-hour walk through a rainforest and snowy meadows of Glacier Valley. After snowshoeing, will warm up with some homemade soup at our favorite local eatery, The Bake Shop! Your bottomless soup comes with sourdough bread, dessert, and beverages (hot or cold). So tasty! Lastly, we’ll head to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. The Center houses rescued wild Alaskan animals that were injured or orphaned and would not have survived on their own. You will get to visit with moose, elk, caribou, musk-ox, eagles, and many more! Then enjoy the scenery during the drive back to Anchorage.
NOTE: Snowshoeing is easier than walking. Trust us, you’ll love it!
