Let’s drill down on how best to use the Alaska TourSaver book. We’ve got the whole crew working on this. Liz Hammond, our lovely admin genius, came up with the right stuff for a trip south of Anchorage along the Kenai Peninsula.

Travel along with us on our 2-for-1 adventure!

From Anchorage, head south to Alyeska Resort in Girdwood. We <3 Girdwood. Head straight up to the resort at the base of the mountain at take the TRAM up to the Roundhouse. It’s an AWESOME ride. G-r-e-a-t for sightseeing and hiking in the hills! The first person pays $25. The second person: FREE with your TourSaver coupon. (TIP: If you hike up to the Roundhouse on your own, the ride down is always FREE! HAHA)

Drive south from Girdwood another 11 miles to Portage where you will see the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center on the right. Bears. Caribou. Wood bison. Musk ox. Moose. Wolves. You’ll see them all here! The first person pays $12.50. The second person = FREE with TourSaver coupon.
