Alyeska Aerial Tram

The Alyeska Aerial Tram is a seven-minute scenic ride from The Hotel Alyeska to 2,300 ft in elevation and the top of Mt. Alyeska. From the Tram, you can see miles in all directions – including views of the Turnagain Arm, up to seven “hanging” glaciers and endless peaks deep into the Chugach Mountain range. Don’t forget to look down! Moose and bear sightings are common, too.

Enjoy the Views

At the Upper Tram Terminal, there is an observation deck providing even more breath-taking panoramic views of majestic mountains, hanging glaciers, sparkling streams, towering spruce, and an array of wildlife. The observation deck is a perfect place to enjoy a relaxed picnic lunch or beautiful evening sunset. Telescopes are also available along the deck. The Glacier Express Restaurant located in the Upper Tram Terminal offers hearty, casual fare. Purchase a Tram+Lunch Combo at the Tram Ticket Office for an easy lunch-time option and great savings!
