Whittier or bust


Explore South Central Alaska on a private tour. First we'll tour Alaska's largest city and see all the highlights from the heights of Arctic Valley to the seaside wildlife hot-spot of Potter's Marsh.

Next We'll travel down the Seward highway which is cut into the sides of mountains as they meet the scenic Turnagain Arm. If we're lucky we might just see a Beluga whale. Next we'll visit the Alyeska ski resort where we'll take a tram up the ski slope and have lunch at a deli perched on the side of a mountain. We'll visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center and see critters that are convalescing.

We'll then travel through North America's longest highway/railway tunnel into the unusual town of Whittier and do a quick tour before dropping you off at your cruise ship or hotel. We could also return to Anchorage if you want to make it a day trip.
