WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Let a local lead the way from Anchorage to Girdwood on this 6.5 hour tour. Meet your guides at the Log Cabin Visitor Center in Downtown Anchorage and drive 30 minutes south to Turnagain Arm. Witness to famous sailors in the age of exploration, Turnagain Arm remains enticing to modern day adventurers and provides a dynamic and beautiful place for recreation.  At Bird Creek your guides will fit you for a bike and helmet, then you will hop aboard a provided high-quality bike. On your left the mountains rise up and on your right the tides ebb and flow below. On this bike ride you'll have time to soak in the views and take pictures at several scenic view points along the bike path. Learn about the natural and human history of Turnagain Arm from your guide along the way. Keep an eye out for moose, eagles and other wildlife, bike through evidence of the 1964 earthquake and learn about the glaciers hanging on the sides of the Chugach Mountains.

Hop off your bike in Girdwood, an old mining town turned ski town. Your guides will load up the equipment and drive you to Wildlife Conservation Center. Before exploring the center at a relaxed pace, fuel up with lunch on the deck with a 360 degree view of the mountains and valley. This is a walk-through/drive-through facility dedicated to animals that have been orphaned and/or injured. An expert from the center will join the group for a narrated tour around the conservation center. The center is home to a wide variety of Alaskan wildlife including: bears, moose, caribou, wood bison, musk ox, lynx, wolves and more!

Sit back and relax on the drive back up Turnagain Arm to Anchorage.
