Travel with a local expert... experience Alaska! Photo by: Michael DeYoung (Travel Alaska)
The ultimate Alaska road trip - conquer the scenic Seward Highway.
Experience an epic day as I share my fun facts, encounters, and love living in the Greatland.
Our drive follows Turnagain Arm through Chugach State Park and lush Chugach National Forest. See spectacular views of the glaciated Kenai Mountains and the majestic Chugach.
Explore some of the roadside gems. . .
Anchorage. Big Wild Life. Alaska's largest city.
Glorious Girdwood. National Geographic continuously ranks this unpretentious place as the world's best ski town. Whatever the season this laid back community does not disappoint.
Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. The AWCC is dedicated to preserving Alaska's wildlife. View and photograph bears, caribou, musk-ox, wolves, and more. The setting is stunning.
We can wing it if you prefer a casual style of travel. The only thing needing advance reservations is scenic flightseeing or dogsledding. Both offer opportunities to stand (or mush) on a glacier. An absolute MUST.
Our day is flexible and tailored to accommodate your schedule and interests.
Highlights can include:
Anchorage City Tour
Gorgeous Turnagain Arm Viewpoints
Scenic Helicopter or Scenic Aerial Tram
Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center
Portage Visitor Center

We are a family of 6, and Dawn, our guide, worked with us to customize the tour to our interests. We got a tour of Anchorage including Earthquake park, the waterside and mud flats, and a short hike up to Flat Top mountain before heading out for Whittier, ate lunch at a small locals' bar, stopped and took lots of photos of the spectacular scenery whenever we wanted, stopped at a wildlife center, and finished up with a short tour of Whittier ( not a lot to see there). Did a lot in a few hours.
