Climb aboard Salmon Berry's small group tour for a fully-guided Alaskan experience unlike any other! Head north from Anchorage on the Glenn Highway Scenic Byway, passing farmland that was colonized during the New Deal, which now grows record breaking produce like the 1,469-pound pumpkin! 

As we ascend the Talkeetna Mountains, we will enter the alpine area of Independence Mine State Historical Park in the breathtaking Hatcher Pass! In summer, we will take a short walk through the old mining town, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In fall and winter, we will take a short scenic walk in Hatcher Pass.

We will then continue our picturesque journey to one of the most unique animal husbandry projects in the world, the Musk Ox Farm. Here, we will get up close views of Musk Ox as we walk the trails aside these fascinating Ice Age creature and learn about their adaptations and place in the future of Alaskan agriculture. Guests will also have time to explore their shop for gifts such as qiviut (Musk Ox wool, one of the most sought after fibers in the world). 

A farm to table style meal is included at the locally owned and operated restaurant! This eatery provides delicious meals made from scratch with Alaska grown fruits, vegetables, and meats. On our drive back to Anchorage, enjoy complimentary snacks and bottled glacier wellness water as well as the continued commentary by your local Alaskan Guide!

Our recommendation is based on positive guest feedback. In particular, the experience of one Salmon Berry Tours guest is instructive:

Our guest had booked the vacation of a lifetime and the ultimate Alaska package. She had to cancel the trip a week before it began due to unfortunate circumstances.

She later told us that within ten minutes of phone time her claim was processed in full. She was very pleased with TravelSafe Insurance's immediate and empathetic response. Getting a refund for her trip was the last thing she wanted to think about, and TravelSafe Insurance took care of her needs and concerns immediately.
