ShoreTrips says...

Don't end your vacation when you end your cruise. This tour between Seward and Anchorage is wonderfully informing and entertaining and a lovely finish to your trip.

Upon boarding at 8:30am, begin your adventure with a stop at Exit Glacier (if road conidtions permit). An eight mile drive off the main road reveals a spectacular view and a short easy riverbed walk provides a close-up and personal view of a magnificent glacier. This will give you a “real Alaska” experience! As you leave Seward and tour north, you will have the opportunity to enjoy spectacular scenery through Moose Pass and Turnagain pass. This area is resplendent with hanging alpine glaciers.

Next, visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, opened to the public in 1993. It is located on 140 acres at the southern edge of Turnagain Arm and the entrance to Portage Valley. AWCC provides care and rehabilitation for injured and orphaned wildlife, as well as wildlife education and awareness. Animals that are unable to be released or survive in the wild are given refuge in the center's spacious habitats. Here people can safely get close, observe and photograph some of Alaska's largest land animals, including moose, bison, elk, deer, caribou, bears, musk ox, small mammals, and birds of prey.

For lunch we'll visit the quaint town of Girdwood and our favorite Bake Shop. Bottomless soup, sourdough bread, beverages, and dessert will fill you up for the day! After lunch, get ready for the aerial tram ride up the longest double black diamond ski slope in North America. From the top, you can view several glaciers, the northern-most temperate rainforest, and on select days visit the Roundhouse Museum. This museum is perched on the mountainside and surrounded with one continuous viewing deck for your pleasure.

Upon arrival in Anchorage, you'll be transferred to your hotel or airport. Arrival is approximately 3-4 p.m.
