See gorgeous Turnagain Arm, artwork, wildlife, scenic photo spots, and more!
This Private Tour of Turnagain Arm is a 6-hour tour starting and ending in Anchorage. We'll head south of Anchorage on the Seward Highway and stop at a couple of pullouts along the highway for photos first. Then we'll make a visit to the magnificent Turnagain Gallery, which is a beautiful log building that had inside amazing artwork for sale from over 40 Alaskan artists. After Turnagain Gallery, we'll head south to the Wildlife Conservation center and see up close grizzly bears, moose, elk, caribou, eagles, owls, and more! After about an hour at the Wildlife Conservation Center we'll go to Portage Lake and take in views of the Portage Glacier and gorgeous mountains surrounding the lake. From there we'll go to Girdwood and take the Tram Ride at Alyeska Resort to the top of the mountain. We will then make the scenic drive back to Anchorage. There are many options for good food along the way, and I can make some recommendations. We can stop to eat at one of these places as time permits.
