Admire epic scenery and spot Alaskan wildlife on this tour from Anchorage, which takes you along the Seward Highway to the Turnagain Arm and the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. Keep your eye out for whales, wolves, moose, goats and sheep on your drive, and get up close to bears, elk and caribou on your educational tour of the rescue and rehabilitation center. You also have the option to adopt an animal!
After pickup from your downtown Anchorage hotel, travel along the Seward Highway, a National Scenic Byway and one of only 15 roads in the US designated as an All-American Road. As you make your way along the Turnagain Arm, enjoy the amazing Alaskan scenery and stop to view wildlife such as sheep, mountain goats, moose, whales, wolves and eagles. You'll then arrive at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center.
This privately owned non-profit organization is dedicated to preserving Alaska's wildlife through public education. The center rescues orphaned and injured animals and provides spacious enclosures and quality animal care. Animals that cannot be released into the wild are given a permanent home at the center.
On your guided tour, get up-close views of bears, moose, elk, caribou and other Alaskan animals. You'll spend 3.5 hours here viewing wildlife and learning about the center's rescue and rehabilitation efforts.
You also have the unique opportunity to adopt an animal! For an additional cost, payable directly to the center, you can help support your chosen animal. You'll receive an adoption certificate, and the center's professional staff will provide the special diet, environment and veterinary care that your animal requires. Simply ask you tour guide for an adoption form or ask for more details when you make your tour reservation.
After your tour, relax on the scenic drive back to your hotel in Anchorage.
