Super Slushy Spring Wildlife Tour

From $129

4-5 Hours



Discover the breathtaking beauty of Alaska's stunning landscapes on a tour from Anchorage to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center!

Well… sort of. You see, this is typically the worst 6 weeks in Alaska. We call it "breakup season". Everything is melting, the temperature can't make up its mind whether its still Winter or Summer and there is a lot of unpredictability. Most companies don't operate during this time frame, and we thought about closing down for a bit to prepare for the summer season, but we figured if you've found yourself in "The Last Frontier" during these weeks you deserved a chance to get out of Anchorage.

We cannot guarantee the most pristine landscapes. There will be dirt. There will be mud. There will be dirty, muddy, melting snow. But we can guarantee a good time! Grab your rubber boots! Your Tour Guide to the Wild Side has you covered with a comfortable ride (that won't charge you a cleaning fee) and tales of this beautiful place we call our home. Even at its worst, the drive down the Turnagain Arm provides some of the most breathtaking views in the Anchorage area.

We will keep you as clean as possible as we drive around the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center and introduce you to our favorite furry friends, making sure to save time for all the muculent photo ops. On our way back to Anchorage, we will stop in Girdwood for folks to grab snacks, souvenirs and more and check out this fun, forest town while it decides its just not that in to Winter anymore.

This tour will probably be the highlight of your trip since someone lied to you about April being a great time to come to Alaska, but we won't make any promises.
