- Alyeska Resort in Girdwood
Upon arrival to the Alyeska Resort, the remainder of the day is at your leisure.
While staying in Girdwood, you may like to visit the Kobuk Valley Jade Company or Crow Creek Mine. Maybe you prefer to pamper yourself in the spa at the resort. Don't miss taking the tram to the top of Mt. Alyeska for dinner with an incredible view of seven glaciers and the Turnagain Arm.
- Alaska Native Heritage Center
Visit the Alaska Native Heritage Center to learn about the Native Cultures in Alaska, see traditional dwellings and watch a Native Dance group perform. A small café sells light items for lunch or a snack.
- Drive to Seward along the spectacular Turnagain Arm
Watch the rocky cliffs to see Dall Sheep. The tides in this area change up to 27' in 12 hours, revealing a muddy quicksand-like beach at low tide. Continue this breathtaking journey through the Portage Valley and over Turnagain pass to Seward. Keep a sharp look out for moose, mountain goats and black bears this time of year!
