This fun three-hour Anchorage Sightseeing Tour of Alaska’s largest city begins with pick up at your Anchorage hotel. Your first stop will be historic Ship Creek, where the city began with a collection of tents in 1911. Today’s Ship Creek is a thriving urban salmon stream, where anglers often fish for salmon on their lunch break from the office. The area is also home to the Alaska Railroad’s original depot, so watch for the blue and gold trains as we transit this interesting part of Anchorage.

Tour Description

This fully-private Anchorage sightseeing tour travels to a number of unique destinations in Alaska’s largest city. Visit Earthquake Park and Point Woronzof to see remnants of the 1964 earthquake and ogle at the stunning skyline of Anchorage set in the middle of the Chugach mountains and scenic Cook Inlet. You may even catch a glimpse of a moose as you travel through town!

Next, your guide will drive along the shores of Lake Hood, the busiest seaplane base in the world, where you’ll watch bush pilots maneuver to and from their landing slips. From there, transit the Seward Highway along famous Turnagain Arm to Beluga Point, where you’ll take in majestic views of the mountains while searching for Dall sheep, black bears and bald eagles along the cliffs, and beluga whales in the silty water of the Arm.

Your journey continues on the way back to town, with a stop at Potter Marsh, part of the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge and home to a number of migratory bird species during the summer months. Then, the van turns east for a visit to Chugach State Park and the sweeping views of the Anchorage “Bowl” from Glen Alps Trailhead, and Sleeping Lady (also known as Mount Susitna), Denali, and the Alaska Range on clear days.

As the tour comes to a close, your driver-guide will return toward downtown Anchorage and point out popular restaurants, pubs, gift shops, and art galleries before bidding a farewell.
