The Turnagain Arm Shuttle is the largest hourly shuttle operator in the area on a mission to help visitors discover one of Alaska’s most scenic byways – the Turnagain Arm area situated in the Chugach National Forest. We think once you experience the stunning landscapes of this region you will agree it is the number one place to explore on your Anchorage city visit.

We provide service to many tour operators who offer exciting adventures and tours along the Turnagain Arm. Our motto is a reflection of our commitment to an efficient and affordable service: we “get you there” at a reasonable price.

In addition to being just minutes from Anchorage, the area offers over 30 other activities that you will not want to miss. Because the shuttle service is separate from the cost of other tours you can avoid the expense of hiring a driver/guide for the day. This also enables you to pick and choose the tours of interest to you, saving you money in the long run.

By using the Turnagain Arm Shuttle you will be able to spend the day in Girdwood and the very next day explorer Portage Valley. Both areas have plenty to offer and will fill your day with memorable activities. Most of our shuttles include a one hour visit to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, which requires a separate ticket purchase.

If you have never been to Anchorage before, or even if you are a return visitor, we have provided a number of helpful links to help you research sites and plan your time here. Remember, activities are paid for separately and are self-guided so you can explore on your own and at your own pace, giving you the freedom to tailor your experience to your interests.

Check out our Self-Guided Tours page to learn more about the diverse range of tours available. These tours provide you with departure times, return times, and descriptions to take the hassle out of planning ahead and allow you to see at a glance what your day will entail.

For your comfort our shuttles offer spacious interiors with high-top ceilings which allow guests to easily walk on and off.

Because your time is valuable we have made frequency and convenience an important part of our shuttle service which runs hourly and daily most of the year. The shuttle leaves Anchorage daily starting at 8 am and returns hourly coming back from the furthest point of the Turnagain Arm up until 5:40 pm.
