Board a motorcoach for a scenic journey north to the resort community of Girdwood. Enjoy a tram ride to the top of Mount Alyeska and a deli-style lunch. The Alyeska Aerial Tram is a three-to-seven minute scenic ride from The Hotel Alyeska to 2,300 ft. in elevation and the top of Mt. Alyeska. From the Tram, you can see for miles in all directions – including views of the Turnagain Arm, up to seven “hanging” glaciers, and endless peaks deep into the Chugach Mountain range. Don’t forget to look down! In the summer months, moose and bear sightings are common on our aerial tram rides, too.
At the Upper Tram Terminal, there is an observation deck providing even more breath-taking panoramic views of majestic mountains, hanging glaciers, sparkling streams, towering spruce, and an array of wildlife. The observation deck is a perfect place to enjoy a relaxed lunch or beautiful evening sunset. Telescopes are also available along the deck. In the summer months, you can also enjoy exploring, berry picking and even hiking on a glacier. There is time on own to visit the community or take a short hike at one of the local trails.
Also, included is a visit to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center to see Alaskan wildlife up close. The AWCC is dedicated to preserving Alaska’s wildlife through conservation, research and animal care. They take in injured and orphaned animals and provide shelter and quality care. The Center consists of large spacious habitats for the animals, where you might see brown bears, moose and bison roaming freely.
