“(By Alaska's Finest Tours & Cruises. $89) Board your Turnagain Arm shuttle for the guided drive along Alaska's most scenic highway. From beginning to end there are dramatic views of scenery & the Cook Inlet. At the 140 Acre Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, jaws drop in awe- even those of long time Alaskans. AWCC's mission is to provide refuge for orphaned, injured & ill animals- those that can't survive in the wild. Your shuttle will take you directly to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center where you can witness Alaskan Wildlife up close. We have timed this tour so that all customers will enjoy the bear feeding! Your journey to include a 1-hour visit to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center begins with a custom tour of Turnagain Arm and is a treat you won't want to miss. On the way to the Wildlife Center you will be traveling through the Chugach State Park down Alaska's most scenic highway. Highlights you will see in addition to wildlife: - Beluga Point - A popular photo stop for possible opportunities to see Dall Sheep & Beluga Whales passing through. It's luck of the draw. They will do their best to sync you up for a once in a lifetime rendezvous with these enchanted creatures of the land & sea. -Portage Glacier- You will see Explorer Glacier, Middle Glacier, Byron Glacier and take a walk through a Rainforest. Next grab a snack or a meal to enjoy on your ride back to Anchorage at Portage Day Lodge. -Potter Marsh- Is one of the most accessible & scenic wildlife viewing areas in Anchorage. About half way along the boardwalk, Rabbit Creek flows underneath and provides a good spot to see spawning Chinook, Coho or Humpback Salmon from May to August, depending on the species. Moose also frequent the marsh year round. -Alaska Wildberry Products- See the worlds largest chocolate waterfall! The store hires locals to pick "Alaska Berries" to make into the wonderful delights. You can also watch the workers make these delights through the glass wall. At the chocolate display case there is a tray of sample chocolates and if you did not sample the item you wanted to try just ask because they want to satisfy.”

“Awesome place to explore the wilderness within the city. Great trail access for bikers, hikers, and frisbee golfers. One of the few places you can walk along the beach in Anchorage.”

“The coastal trail is just as it sounds. A 7 mile trail along the Anchorage Coastline. Tons of places to stop and take pictures or take the bikes provided by us and go cruise the coastline. This trail is always busy as most Alaskans are pretty active either running, walking, biking, or practicing for cross country skiing. ”

“It's a steep climb (not for everyone), but WOW are the views amazing. Park at the Glen Alps trailhead and follow the signs (or people). There is a fee for parking.”

Nature Preserve
“About 20 minute drive to the south, nice boardwalks and lots of waterbirds to see. In the fall, the tundra and trumpeter swans stop over here and are beautiful to see. Continue on down the road afterwards for a beautiful drive down Turnagain Arm. One of the prettiest drives you will ever go on!”

“This is an awesome place for hiking. Bring some food and water. It is $5.00 to park. There is sort of secret parking in the back. When you turn in, keep going straight. If you look carefully, you will notice the road passes the ranger's house on the right (house on the left, road on the right). DO NOT PARK OUT OF PARKING AREA; THEY DO TOW AND TICKET PEOPLE.”

“Most beaches around Anchorage are mud flats ( that can trap you like quicksand) but Point Woronzoff (just west of the airport) is a rocky and sand beach that makes for a great beach walk close to town. You can walk there on the Coastal Trail if you are ambitious, or drive up Northern Lights boulevard. ”

Still a thriving, working gold mine today, a visit to the Crow Creek Goldmine sees you learn about the mining process, the history of this famous business and the amazing products it has produced. During your visit you can pan for gold yourself, to learn how to sift and sluice the gold from the experts.

“Gorgeous hike out to ice caves. If you haven't hiked in ice caves before, please do your research and consider going with someone who knows what they're doing...or just walk out to them without going in them. ”
