Anchorage Private 3 Hour Tour

This fun 3-hour adventure starts from a pickup location of your choice. First, you'll visit historic Ship Creek where Anchorage was first settled as a tent city in 1911. Here, you'll find a thriving urban salmon stream where downtown anglers often catch salmon on their lunch breaks from work. This is also the location of the Anchorage rail terminal for the historic Alaska Railroad.

Your guide will then take you to Earthquake Park and Point Woronzof, where you can take in the stunning view of the Anchorage skyline set against the backdrop of the Chugach Mountains and Cook Inlet. You may even catch sight of a moose along the roadway! Next, stop at the busiest seaplane base in the world, Lake Hood. Watch as local bush pilots expertly land their planes and taxi to their landing docks. Following this stop, you'll visit the incomparable Turnagain Arm and Beluga Point. Take in the majestic scenery and scout for Beluga whales, Dall sheep, mountain goats, black bears, and bald eagles.

Your journey continues into Potter's Marsh and the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge, a protected wildlife habitat home to many migratory species of birds in the summer. Climb the stunning vistas of Flattop Mountain and get a birdseye view of the Municipality of Anchorage (which is larger than Rhode Island!) as well as views of Sleeping Lady, Denali, and the Alaska Range on clear days. As the tour comes to an end, you'll head back downtown where your guide will point out the best restaurants, bars, gift shops, and art galleries before bidding farewell. A perfect introduction to the diverse area that is Anchorage!

Customer Testimonials

Went on an outstanding 3 hour tour of Anchorage. Steve was a wonderful guide friendly and knowledgeable. Took us to the main highlights with a history of Anchorage and the Alaskan railroad. He picked us up at our hotel on time and brought us back. I would highly recommend for people staying a short time in Anchorage before heading to Talkeetan.
A group of ten of us had a day in Anchorage before departing on a cruise. We booked a 3 hour tour and saw much more than we thought we would. Bill was an excellent guide, never rushed us, great narrative. It was actually more than 4 hours. Even saw a pod of Beluga whales! We all thought it was a great tour and would highly recommend it.
Dawn showed us Anchorage! She met the group at Snow City Cafe. After a great breakfast we spent 3 hours exploring Anchorage. Very informative! A great way to get an overview of Anchorage - discover spots to visit - restaurants to eat - etc. If going to Anchorage, contact Greatland Adventures and schedule a tour! Well worth it!!
Steve Busby provided a simply fabulous tour of Anchorage. We had one afternoon only to see the city and he provided an excellent tour in 5 hours. He was very courteous and attentive to the sites we were interested in seeing. Not only did we see wildlife (a huge male moose, Arctic tern birds, Dall sheep) but we also saw the historic sites, gorgeous mountain ranges and the downtown area. His tour was very reasonably priced and he was extremely knowledgeable.
An excellent tour and great introduction to Anchorage and the surrounding area. Steve is incredibly knowledgeable about a wide array of topics. He's passion and enthusiasm for what he does shines through at the same time as making sure every need is taken care of. Thank you , Steve, for a wonderful three hours.
