What to Expect
Enjoy a fully guided tour and transfer from the historic port city of Whittier through North America's longest combined rail and highway tunnel, the Anton Anton Anderson Memorial tunnel and into the towering peaks of the Chugach National Forest.  Revel in a tram ride and lunch atop Mt. Alyeska and behind the scenes tours and tastings at Girdwood Brewing Co., Anchorage Distillery, and Double Shovel Cider Co.  
We will board the Alyeska Aerial Tram for a birds-eye view of the Girdwood Valleyand surrounding Chugach Mountains before topping out at our lunch perch atop Mt. Alyeska. From 2,300ft. above the valley floor we will enjoy lunch at the Bore Tide Bar and Deli while soaking up the breath-taking panoramic views. Once fueled up on our lunches, we will make our way to Girdwood Brewing Company. Founded in 2017, we will cozy up in this beautiful brewery while we taste the hand crafted beers and receive a behind the scenes tour the brewery. Mingle with the locals and learn the art of brewing craft beer in the Last Frontier.
Continuing the adventure toward Anchorage, we will parallel the Turnagain Arm on the most scenic 40 mile drive in Alaska. Continuing with our 100% Alaska crafted theme, we will visit the largest distillery in Alaska. Utilizing Alaska grown barley and wheat, fresh Alaskan berries, and pristine glacier water, Anchorage Distillery is crafting some of the state’s smoothest gins, vodkas, and whiskeys. We will sample these spirits straight or in a handmade craft cocktail and go behind the scenes to take a closer look at the production process. Rounding out our Alaska Crafted Tour will find us at one of the most popular tasting rooms in the state, Double Shovel Cider Company. Named for a caribou antler formation prized by hunters, Double Shovel opened in 2016 as the first microcidery in Alaska. Sourcing as many local Alaskan apples as possible and utilizing a proprietary juice blend from the Pacific Northwest, see and sample these gluten free cider blends at the source.
Your Alaska Crafted tour and transfer will finish with a hotel or airport drop-off. 
From the Alaska shoreline to the the big city, you will experience the Alaska craft beverage scene in style on this off-the-beaten path tour. With a maximum group size of 14, this small group tour ensures a personalized experience full of stories and surprises you’ll be sure to recount to your friends back home.
