To make the most out of your time in Alaska, consider booking a cruise transfer and tour combo of the scenic Turnagain Arm before catching your cruise ship in Whittier. With its glacier views, whale-watching opportunities, and dramatic mountain scenery, the Turnagain Arm is a must for first-time Alaska visitors.
You’ll also want to spend time seeing the sights in Anchorage. The city’s popular trolley tour is a great way to view many top Anchorage landmarks, including Earthquake Park and Lake Hood, or you can take a scenic city tour and learn about Alaska’s indigenous cultures at the Alaska Native Heritage Center. Anchorage is also the gateway to the Alaska interior and jumping-off point for flightseeing tours of Denali National Park and Matanuska Glacier tours.
