    Turnagain Turn Tour

    "Turn... again?" Yes, again! Trust us, you'll want to when you see the incredible panoramic views at the top of Mt. Alyeska. In fact, you might catch yourself spinning about for some time, as you try taking in all there is to see. In one direction, beautiful glaciers and foothills -- in the other, meltwater pools -- in yet another, more foothills, and beyond! But let's take it from the beginning: first you'll get picked up at your hotel and head down the aptly named Turnagain Arm, to the aerial tram. Then you'll enjoy a relaxing tram ride up the mountain, where you'll be treated to the aforementioned view. After you're through turning and taking it all in, you'll get to check out the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, home to bears, musk ox, wood bison, and other critters of note! Lunch is included, in case looking at any of those delicious animals makes you hungry. That was a joke. Don't eat the animals.

But that does get to the heart of the matter here -- the world's getting hotter, and that doesn't exactly accommodate humongous prehistoric slabs of ice. These beauties won't be around forever, so come and check them out while you still have the chance. You'll start the trip with a complimentary ride from your hotel to Mt. Alyeska, where you'll take a tram up half a mile to the viewing decks of the Roundhouse Museum. Weather permitting, you'll be able to see several glaciers from there. Then you'll take the tram back down the big hill to one of the finest eateries in the very-northern United States; bottomless soup, sourdough bread, desserts, beverages, and a cozy atmosphere all await you. Then a quick stop at the Conservation Center, where you can see all types of animals, including bears, eagles, elk and bison, before heading off on a 1 hour cruise across Portage Lake to look at more glaciers. While you inspect Portage Glacier, on-board naturalists will tell you all about the ecosystem and the geology of this incredible area. So hop on this tour while you still can.
