Begin this experience from Anchorage. Travel south through Seward Highway towards Mt. Alyeska. The summit of this mountain is almost 4,000 feet high and its slopes average 54 feet of snow every year. Once at Mt. Alyeska, take a tram to the top of the mountain and visit the viewing decks of the Roundhouse Museum. Weather permitting, you’ll be able to see several glaciers from this viewpoint, as well as Turnagain Arm from the museum’s viewing decks.
Then, take the tram back down the mountain for lunch at a top favorite eatery located at the base of the Chugach Mountains. You’ll feast on the bottomless soup of the day, famous sourdough bread, and delicious desserts. Non-alcoholic beverages are included.

After lunch, continue this all-day experience to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. This site is a rescue and rehabilitation organization for Alaska’s wild mammals. Here you’ll view grizzly bears, eagles, families of elk and bison, wolves, and other furry friends.
