Whittier to Anchorage All Day tour detailed itinerary

Disembark your cruise ship and board the bus about 9:00AM. Start your adventure with a short glance at World War II relic which is what Whittier looks like with abandoned war buildings. Then pass through the 2.5-mile-long Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel to leave Whittier, which is the largest highway tunnel in North America. Continue on the Whittier/Portage Glacier Access Road that connects Seward Highway with Whittier. Glaciers from an earlier period carved the steep mountain slopes in this magnificent valley. Explorer Glacier can be seen high on the mountain. A stop will be made at the Begich Boggs Visitor Center. You will also have the opportunity to take pictures of glacial ice that has calved into Portage Lake. Next visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, where you can view bison, elk, eagles, moose, caribou, and musk oxen in a natural setting. Continue on the highway, view the remains of Portage, a small town ravaged in the 1964 earthquake. Next stop is at Girdwood at Alyeska Ski Resort. Take a tram up the Alyeska Mountain 2,300 feet to enjoy the spectacular views of seven glaciers, majestic mountains and Turnagain Arm (if weather permits). Continuing North on the Seward, Turnagain Arm stretches on the left side of the road, where often you can see Dall sheep at Windy point or beluga whales at Beluga point (drive by). Check out the progress of salmon fisherman below the bridges along the highway. Just south of Anchorage, the road borders Potter Marsh, a portion of the Anchorage Coastal Waterfowl Refuge. Arrive to Anchorage - largest city in Alaska. Most visitors that come to Alaska to experience the "true wilderness" tend to overlook Anchorage, but it's well worth spending some time here experiencing the only big-city taste that the state has to offer. Take a glance of the original tent city that started in the Ship Creek area and now also occupied by Alaska Railroad Depot. Take a quick look at the salmon waters and watch the fish running up the stream. Watch the locals trying to catch the salmon. Next drive by the Earthquake Park, which now stands on the land liquefied - swallowing the coast line when the "Good Friday" earthquake rocked Anchorage in March of 1964. The park carries monuments and reader boards with information on the great quake. Continue on to the stop at Point Woronzof, is a great opportunity to see Cook Inlet and the whole city from the distance. Next you will get to see Lake Hood, which is the largest and busiest floatplane base in the world. Lake Hood is a great place to relax and watch the many landings and takeoffs of floatplanes. Then back to downtown where you get to see a whole downtown area. While enjoying the ride make sure to notice Anchorage’s famous flowers and great shopping areas! We will drop off anywhere in Anchorage after the tour ends.Tim dog mushing
