    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.

    Denali Highway Jeep Excursion

    If you're taking an excursion in Alaska, there are a few things you should probably know about. #1. Polar Bears -- don't hit them (they're hard to see in the snow). #2. You simply MUST ride the Denali Highway. After all, it was named a "Drive of a Lifetime," by National Geographic Traveler Magazine... AND if there was a #3, it would be "Take your camera," but that's a moot point, in the smartphone age. That said, this route is a photographer's paradise. Along the way you'll enjoy views of snow-capped mountains, icy glaciers, and panoramic vistas flanking the Denali Highway. Not to mention all of the wildlife you might come across if you keep your eyes sharp... As driving the Denali Highway is prohibited by most rental vehicle companies, this exclusive excursion provides access to more of Alaska's spectacular scenery and wildlife, and is a great alternative to crowded bus trips. Each Jeep has 4 doors -- perfect for a quick fire drill, even more useful for swapping drivers, and a CB radio for communicating with the guide so stops can be made along the way. Wanna know a little CB sign off? Repeat after us: "Ten-four, good buddy!" Or, if that's not your style you can always keep it short and sweet with, "Roger."
