What You Can Expect

Turnagain Arm and Alaska Wildlife Tour from Anchorage

Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center

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.

This was an excellent tour, I enjoyed the animals at the Conservation Center, the tour guide was very knowledgable, and interested in what we had to say, and answered all our questions. I would definietly recommend this tour, and the price was awesome as well.

Fantastic tour!! The guide / driver, Rebecca, is amazing. She was very friendly and flexible. When some people on the coach noticed a pretty area, she added an impromptu stop so we could get out and take more pictures. She wasn't at all in a rush like most tours she asked if anyone had dinner plans or a preferred time to return to Anchorage, and then gave us extra time to enjoy the scenery. It is a stunning drive, and the wildlife park doesn't disappoint. It's great to see the conservation efforts in action. The animals have plenty of room and a semblance of normal life. Make sure you try to catch the bear feeding. This tour with Rebecca was the highlight of my time in Anchorage.

I loved the wildlife tour. The driver was knowledgeable and friendly. The scenery was magnificent, and seeing the animals up close was a highlight of my trip to Alaska. I would definitely recommend Salmon Berry Tours. When there was a ticketing mix-up, I called their toll free number, and the operator was able to correct the problem.

The drive is amazing! Great scenery along the way. The Wildlife Reserve is ok, not really worth the 99. This really isn't a tour and the reserve is not very big. You can see the whole thing in an hour or less depending on how fast you want to get through it. The bears were out and about when we went which was very cool and I finally saw a moose there. Admission to the reserve is only 12.50 so you are really paying for the van to get you there and back. If you can, I would suggest renting a car, seeing the reserve, and then do some hiking lots of great trails nearby. The guide was great, very friendly and provided some interesting commentary along the ride.

My husband and I were in Alaska for 9 days and traveled by rail from Anchorage to Fairbanks. Your “Wilderness Tour” was our last activity prior to flying back to our home state. Unfortunately both my husband and I were extremely disappointed. All of your information and brochures that we had been given or sent featured a picture of a wolf in its natural habitat. Since we had not seen any wolves we were certainly looking forward to that but not only were there no wolves, there was no mention or reference to them on the premises. Although there were some photographs and signage at the areas where the animals were penned, there was no one to talk about them or to answer questions. Your driver, other that an occasional comment or remarks, spent the majority of the drive, coming and going, interacting and conversing with the couple sitting directly behind her rather than involving or sharing information with others on the bus. Upon arrival, she simply dropped us off at the gift shop and told us when to return for the drive back. I can’t speak for others, but we did not see her during our “do it yourself tour”.

We were fortunate enough to have other tours and excursions that were much more enjoyable and informative, but had to specifically been looking forward to this one to be a final memory of our wonderful time in Alaska.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to express my thoughts. Bev Bley
