Explore the wilderness of Alaska.



Explore the rugged terrain of the Northern Trail. Mimicking the habitat of Alaska's tundra and taiga region, the Northern Trail features the animals that make this area their home including brown bears, Roosevelt elk, river otters, snowy owls, mountain goats, and Steller's sea eagles. Northern Trail includes the Taiga Viewing Shelter, an indoor viewing area where you see river otters swim playfully underwater and bears hunt for trout. Also check out the Tundra Center, with its beautiful 70-foot long curving mural depicting the Alaskan tundra and video screening room.
