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.

Fantastic tour!! Our guide Kevin was knowledgeable and very friendly...gave us tons of interesting facts, history and fun stories. We saved the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center for the last day of our 3-week vacation in Alaska. It is a MUST-SEE!! We saw more animals in one day than the 3 weeks!

This was a great tour. The scenery was beautiful, the guide knowledgeable about the area and the wonderful animals we saw. I thought it was well worth the money. We got lots of great pictures of the animals. We got our only close-up bear experience during our Alaska trip at the Animal Refuge! I recommend this tour and would do it again.

Chloe, our guide, was excellent. She was very knowledgeable about Alaska, Anchorage, and the wildlife as well as personable and professional too. The drive was beautiful and seeing the wildlife up close was spectacular. We decided to take this tour because seeing wildlife is so unpredictable and this was a sure way to see them. We watched the bears for a long time and would have loved to watch them even longer. It was awesome that I was able to support such a wonderful establishment.

We all enjoyed the trip thoroughly - the young lady tour guide had excellent knowledge and stopped for some great photo shoots.
The tour of the Wildlife Sanctuary was excellent - and she seemed to know many of the animals by name.

Really worthwhile trip to learn more about Alsaka.

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.
