Take our breathtaking ride down the Seward Highway voted top scenic byways in America where you will view awe-inspiring stops along Turnagain Arm.

Alaska's Seward Highway climbs over mountain passes where you're surrounded by jaw-dropping views of jagged peaks, rain forests, crystal lakes and the Pacific Ocean. This highway truly is, a photographer's dream. Potter Marsh marks the end of city views and the beginning of wilderness—it's absolutely a "birder's" paradise! While driving along this road, we stop at many opportunities with ample time to take in the breathtaking views that will make your soul sing.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Beluga Point: Popular photo stop with panoramic views of Turnagain Arm. Many are lucky, having made their "offerings to the Sheep and Whale Gods" for possible opportunities to see Dall sheep and Beluga whales passing through. It's luck of the draw, we'll do our best to sync you up for a once in a lifetime rendezvous with these enchanted creatures of the land and sea.

  • Portage Valley: You will see Explorer Glacier, Middle Glacier, Byron Glacier and Take a Walk through a Rainforest. Next grab a snack or meal to enjoy on your ride back to Anchorage at Portage Day Lodge.

  • Turnagain Art Gallery: Owned and operated by a master log cabin home builder Greg and Wife Wendy a local jewelry artists. The gallery is full of stunning sculptures, unique jewelry, deeply moving paintings and photographic prints. Their son Jordon Anderson is a professional and competitive chainsaw carver. He is often seen on the grounds producing life size wood carvings of local Alaskan animals.

  • Potter Marsh: With its nearly panoramic view of Turnagain arm, Potter Marsh, peppered by spruce, cottonwoods and alder trees, is one of the most accessible and scenic wildlife viewing areas in Anchorage. About halfway along the boardwalk, Rabbit Creek flows underneath and provides a good spot to see spawning chinook, Coho, or humpback salmon from May to August, depending on the species. Moose also frequent the marsh year round. May and June are good times to see these large ungulates standing in the marsh foraging for new growth.
