Explore Alaska’s Seward Highway for a marvelous wildlife-spotting experience and stunning glacier sights that make this road trip unlike any other. Get out of Anchorage and drive along Turnagain Arm, an inlet where you see beluga whales following salmon and other fish. Go farther south  to see the Chugach Mountains, where you’re sure to witness moose, Dall sheep, and bald eagles. You can pull over anywhere along the route to go hiking. Some of the glaciers are accessible by foot or boat. Don’t miss the chance to explore the incredible terrain. Byron Glacier, for example, is a popular day hike.
