The trip to Whittier will be awe inspiring along the way. This trip will include the Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel. This is the longest tunnel (a straight 2.5 miles long) in North America. There will be many stops that will include Beluga Point, Bird Creek, Bird Point, several pullouts for wildlife, Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, Portage pullout with many glaciers, Whittier tunnel and the town of Whittier with many photo opportunities in the area! This is a very beautiful area and trip, so have extra batteries on hand! Plan on 8 hours for this tour.
The weather in Alaska can be interesting at best. We have many microclimates and weather conditions can change rapidly! The weather will not stop our tours, however safety will! Temperatures can range from 50-70°F/10-21C and winds can be from a light breeze, to strong a gust. Rain is not a problem here as we get a lot of it throughout the summer months. The rain typically is a slow drizzle (similar to Seattle).
Most areas are wheelchair accessible with easy short walks on flat ground. The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is not completely wheelchair accessible. It is flat ground and easy to walk around. We will be driving from exhibit to exhibit, so you will still be able to see the different animals from the vehicle.
