OPTION ONE... Drive Yourself

Whittier is an easy 60 mile drive southeast from Anchorage, with lots to see on the way. Be sure to check out the local attractions on your drive, from numerous photo stops along the famed Turnagain Arm, to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, Portage Glacier, and the longest tunnel in North America or join up with one of our popular transportation packages!
Allow 1.5 hours to drive from Anchorage to the Whittier Tunnel. North Americas longest shared tunnel is open every hour on the half hour & we recommend taking the 10:30am tunnel from Bear Valley to Whittier for the 26 Glacier Cruise and the 11:30 am tunnel for the Glacier Quest Cruise. More information is available for the Whittier Tunnel and the City of Whittier.
