Alaska's wow-factor, it's one thing you can always count on. That's why for 2024 we've added some fun new activities so that you can experience even more of that Alaska awe.

Valdez Helicopter Tours

When you're visiting Valdez you'll spend a lot of your time looking up. Up at the mountainsides, up at waterfalls, up to distant peaks. Now you can see this incredible landscape from a whole new vantage point. Choose from three helicopter tours: a 30-minute flightseeing trip, a 60-minute flightseeing trip with glacier landing, and a 90-minute flightseeing trip to Columbia Glacier with a glacier landing.

Talkeetna Lakes Kayak Tour

A serene kayaking trip just a short distance from downtown Talkeetna. You'll have a leisurely guided paddle for about two hours, winding among quiet lake islands with views of Denali and the Alaska Range on clear days. A peaceful interlude on a busy Alaska vacation!

Rocks, Rivers and Glaciers Guided Hike

Discover a fascinating blend of glaciology, geology, and Alaskan history on this fun and educational hiking tour in Palmer. This small community an hour north of Anchorage is tucked along the braided Matanuska River and within view of multiple mountain ranges. The trip is a great day activity while staying at the Alaska Glacier Lodge.

Cruise Tour & Transfer Between Seward and Anchorage

Connect between Anchorage and your cruise in Seward on a full-day tour-transfer combo. Depending on the season, the guided tour includes a ride up the Mt. Alyeska tram, lunch in Girdwood, a visit to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, a stop at Exit Glacier in Seward, and multiple stops for photos along the way. This is a small group transfer, and seats fill fast on cruise days. Check availability for Seward to Anchorage or Anchorage to Seward.

Turnagain Turn Tour

Like the sound of that cruise tour and transfer, but not taking a cruise? Take this Turnagain Turn Tour instead! This six-hour excursion operates out of Anchorage and includes the same (lunch in Girdwood, a ride up the Mt. Alyeska tram, tour of the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, and photo stops).
