The Alaska Wildlife Day Tour is one of the best day trips Anchorage offers for families and animal lovers! It offers endless awe-inspiring natural beauty on the 1-hour drive from Anchorage to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. This wildlife refuge is home to black and brown bears as well as moose, lynx, wood bison, wolves, reindeer, and much more! You’re likely to see most or all of these during your guided visit. The 200-acre sanctuary is dedicated to preserving Alaska’s native wildlife through conservation and education. During your 90-minute guided tour, you have the unique opportunity to see these incredible animals up close. Meet Hugo, the Grizzly Bear found injured and abandoned but now enjoying her sanctuary at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. Watch Pip and Jo, the rescued orphan moose siblings, as they play together in the tall grass. These animals and many more await you on this spectacular day trip from Anchorage that is fun for all ages!

Your Alaska Wildlife Day Tour provides pick up at your hotel (or convenient meeting place) in downtown Anchorage. The roomy Mercedes Sprinter van has big viewing windows, perfect for snapping photos along the way which you certainly will want to do! Travel over 70 miles of the Seward Highway and take in the sights as your friendly local guide shares the stories behind them. This National Scenic Byway and All-American Road hugs the shoreline of Turnagain Arm and provides endless dramatic views of the glaciated Kenai and Chugach Mountains. It’s common to see wildlife from the road, but remember, guaranteed wildlife encounters are just around the corner on this Alaska Wildlife Day Tour!
