This half day tour from Anchorage includes a local guide, a tour of the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, and scenic photo-stops along the way!
Following your pick up at your hotel or the Salmon Berry office in downtown Anchorage, sit back in our comfortable and clean sprinter vans as your Alaskan driver guides you down Turnagain Arm, an All-American Road and National Scenic Byway. Look out for hanging Alpine glaciers, Dall sheep in the Chugach Mountains and Bald Eagles. Beluga whales can be seen during the summer and autumn months in the Cook Inlet and Turnagain Arm!
Tour the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, a 200-acre natural habitat that provides wildlife education and rehabilitation for some of Alaska’s favorite animals! We will drive and walk approximately 2-miles through the Conservation Center's trails as you get close enough to observe some of our favorite land animals such as moose, reindeer, bison, wolves, and more! While we cannot guarantee bears due to the size of their habitat, however, it is common to see both brown and black bears at the Conservation Center! Make sure to take photos of wildlife with the amazing backdrop of the Chugach Mountains and Turnagain Arm!
Before making the return drive to Anchorage, stop at the Conservation Center's Gift Shop.

Salmon Berry Tours recommends travel insurance provided by TravelSafe Insurance. Salmon Berry Tours is not affiliated with TravelSafe Insurance, nor do we offer any special discounts with them. 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.
