Highlights
    What to Expect
    A National Scenic Byway, Seward Highway is one of only 15 roads in the US designated as an All-American Road. After hotel pickup in Anchorage, experience a great drive on this highway through stunning Alaskan scenery. As you travel along the Turnagain Arm, keep your eyes peeled for eagles, mountain goats, moose, whales, wolves and other wildlife.

    Arrive at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, a privately owned nonprofit organization that rescues orphaned and injured animals. Get up-close to bears, elk and caribou on your educational tour of the rehabilitation center, which provides spacious enclosures and quality animal care.

    Inspired by the center’s dedication to save Alaskan wildlife? Consider adopting an animal — you can help support your chosen animal for an additional cost, payable directly to the center. You’ll take home an adoption certificate, and the center’s staff will inform you of the special diets, environment and care that your animal requires. You can ask your guide for an adoption form, or inquire when making your booking for the tour.

    Finish your 3.5-hour tour with a relaxing drive back on the Turnagain Arm to your Anchorage hotel.

They are knowledgeable, enthusiastic, friendly and always enjoy sharing all aspects of the 49th State with our guests.. You were definitely in capable hands!! Again, many thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with the Salmon Berry team.

    Robbie was the greatest tour guide. He went above and beyond to make sure we saw the most wildlife we could. He stopped numerous times for photo ops. He gave us a lot of history of the area, along with great pictures to illustrate.
