Day 1: Anchorage Arrival Upon arrival in Anchorage transfer at your own cost to your hotel, the rest of the day is at leisure to enjoy the sights. With almost 300,000 people calling it home, Anchorage is the largest city and cosmopolitan centre of Alaska. While not the capital of the state, it is the self-proclaimed gateway to Alaska for many visitors. Built originally as a railway depot, the city grew with the development of the farming collective in the Mat-Su valley and the building of Air Force bases. With the discovery of oil, the city became the commercial and financial centre of the state. Situated on the Pacific Ocean on Cook Inlet and moderated by the ocean, the city does not often get the extreme weather that much of Alaska is renowned for. A vibrant and unique city on the edge of the Alaskan wilderness - parks, trails, and moose all for a unique setting, and there are plenty of opportunities for exploring if you choose. The quaint log cabin visitor centre is a good place to start.

Day 3: Anchorage > Seward Cruise Ship Terminal (Coach) This morning, board a motorcoach to Seward. This scenic journey takes you along Cook Inlet and into the glacier-filled Chugach Mountains. Visit the quaint town of Girdwood for the aerial tram ride up the longest double black diamond ski slope in North America. From the top you can view several glaciers and the northern-most temperate rainforest; after descending the tram, stop for lunch. Visit the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Centre, which provides care and rehabilitation for injured and orphaned wildlife. Here you can safely get close, observe, and photograph some of Alaska's largest land animals including: moose, bison, elk, deer, caribou, bears, muskox, small mammals, and birds of prey. Lastly, stop at Exit Glacier if time allows. An eight mile drive off the main road reveals a spectacular vantage point; a short and easy walk provides an up-close and personal view of a magnificent glacier. Upon arrival in Seward, at approximately 4 pm, you'll be transferred directly to your cruise ship and helped with offloading of your luggage. (Lunch included today).
