In the morning, you'll travel by deluxe motorcoach to Anchorage, where you'll have time to enjoy lunch on your own at one of the city's many excellent restaurants. Then you'll continue your scenic trip, past the picturesque Turnagain Arm. On the journey to Alyeska you'll visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. You'll spend the night at The Hotel Alyeska in a beautiful setting surrounded by seven hanging glaciers.
Alyeska is a gorgeous place to visit even summer time. It is nested nicely in Girdwood, between the mountains and close to Turnagain Arm. It is one of the few (only maybe) places to downhill ski and at the same time look at the sea, even maybe whales. There is so much to do in Alyeska, from golf, to mountain baking, to glacier hiking. Hike up to Alyeska Mt during summer. If desired, take a tram, but hiking is fun and the view is spectacular.
