Description

A trip on the creeks of Turnagain Pass allows visitors to the Seward Highway to explore and enjoy the Kenai Peninsula in a unique setting.

Travelers to the Kenai Peninsula and Turnagain Arm area will be amazed at the sheer beauty of the landscape set before them. Six thousand foot peaks dive steeply into the sea, bejeweled with hanging seracs and glaciers with thick coastal rainforest around their bases. Turnagain Pass sits at 900 feet and is the highest point on the Seward Highway, which accesses the Kenai Region.

Turnagain Pass features meandering waterways fed by Granite and Bertha Creeks featuring swift moving scenic waters. From creek level, striking views of the Chugach Range open and occasionally Bear, Eagle and Moose can be seen.

Trips to the Turnagain Pass Creeks originate in the resort town of Girdwood and are half day in length. Girdwood is a 30 minute drive from downtown Anchorage and is a busy summertime cruise ship port.
