            "Best Tour In Our Two Weeks In Alaska!James took us an absolutely wonderful tour of the Anchorage Bowl, out to Byron Glacier and the Wildlife Center If you are looking for a 5 Star tour you won’t go wrong with Welcome Anchorage Tours." Bob, September 2023

About The Glacier View and Wildlife Adventure Tour:

  • Welcome Anchorage’s most popular tour. This day tour is designed to present a brief overview of Anchorage’s most interesting history and current features and experience the stunning beauty, wilderness, glaciers and wildlife just a short drive from Downtown Anchorage.

  • As always, all  tours with Welcome Anchorage Tours are provided by an experienced local Alaskan Tour guide, in the comfort of a new SUV, or Mercedes Sprinter Van ,  for your comfort and personalized experience. 

  • Your exploration of the largest city in Alaska begins with a custom pick-up at your lodging or breakfast/lunch restaurant of choice. 

  • Downtown Anchorage is a great place to start your local, guided exploration. Historic Downtown is a must see followed by a short drive to the Alaska Railroad station Anchorage Depot where we will stop at the Ulu Factory https://theulufactory.com/ and Ship Creek salmon stream

  • Your local Alaskan guide then transports you to Lake Hood Floatplane base,  which is our nation’s most active lake aerodrome. 

  • Our next stop is Beluga Point which is just south of the city on the Turnagain arm. This destination features incredible Alaskan vistas and wildlife viewing. Dahl Sheep are often visible on the rocky crags of the Chugach mountains and when migrating, Beluga Whales can be seen plying through the fjord waters.

  •  Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center-After Beluga Point, we stop at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. This is your guaranteed opportunity to see bears, elk, moose and many other Alaskan animals.

  • Byron Glacier Trail- Our final destination is the Glacier River Walk to Byron Glacier. This easy 20-25 minute walk allows you the opportunity to walk along the river water produced from the hanging Bryon Glacier and eventually walk up to view the glacier itself. ( Please note the Glacier walk is seasonal. Generally from May-October. November-April we will still be able to view hanging glaciers in Portage Valley)

  • As your tour concludes, we would be happy to drop you at your choice of restaurants for lunch or dinner or simply a return to your lodging to freshen up before resuming activities
