Anchorage All Around City Tour

Tours Anchorage
$69
Explore Anchorage with a native guide to discover the history and heritage of Alaska's largest city. Take in the view from Ship Creek and Point Woronzof, browse the goodies at Alaska Wild Berry Products and the knives at the ULU Factory, and admire native art at the ANMC. What stands out most about this tour is you will have the opportunity to taste reindeer sausage, smoked salmon and smoked halibut. You will get to see most of Anchorage's popular sites in town including Alaska Wild Berry Products, Ship Creek, Earthquake Park, Point Woronzof, University of Alaska, the Ulu Factory, even the Alaska Native Hospital where you will see one of Alaska's largest collection of Native Art.

Your Anchorage exploration starts with easy pickup from your hotel in town. Chat with your guide about Alaska's rich cultural heritage and natural history as you make your way to Ship Creek, where you can watch salmon running upstream. Hear about the devastating quake that changed the face of Anchorage as you pass by Earthquake Park, and watch seaplanes coming and going on Lake Hood.

Follow your nose to Alaska Wild Berry Products, home to a sweetly spectacular 20-foot (6-m) chocolate waterfall made with more than 3,000 pounds (1,360 kg) of cocoa-infused goodness. Pick up some treats from the store before making your way to the Alaska Native Medical Center, a hospital that displays one of Alaska's largest collections of native art. Admire the masks, totems, and artwork on display and be sure to check out the gift shop.

A taste of Alaska will be had by all who choose.  We will make a stop at Alaska Sausage and Seafood where they will bring out samples so you can sample flavors of Alaska.  After, if you choose to buy they have non-perishable items that pack real well in your suitcase that you do not need to refrigerate until you open.  For refrigerated items they sell you a freezer sleeve with jell packs that will keep items cold and last for 36 hours. Many guest buy this option to bring back to their hotel fridge and repack later for the flight home.  Note:  Alaska Sausage and Seafood is not open on Sunday and will not be a tour stop.

Next, visit the ULU Factory, where you can see traditional knives being made and watch a demonstration on how to use an ULU knife and cutting bowls. Your final stop is at Point Woronzof, a stunning viewpoint that offers up vistas of Anchorage's city skyline, the waters of Cook Inlet, and, on a clear day, the distant, glacier-capped peak of Denali. See if you can spot beluga whales, moose, and bald eagles. At the end of your tour, you can opt to go back at your hotel, have your guide drop you at a restaurant or attraction in town, or even rent fishing poles to keep enjoying the great outdoors on your own.

Girdwood Canyoneering Adventure

Adventure Anchorage
$140

Canyoneering is your action packed rappelling and climbing experience taking you over cliffs to hidden waterfalls through narrow slot canyons in lush Alaska rainforest.

Explore Girdwood's Glacier Valley as you transport back in time from Hotel Alyeska to the Historic Crow Creek Gold Mine canyons mined by hydraulic ‘giants'. Small groups gear up with harnesses and helmets to take on the challenges below.

Dropping into the canyon control your 50 foot decent, rappelling another two times to a thundering 40 foot waterfall. Climbing out the dry canyon brings you face to face with the next several challenges.  

Sounds of trickling cascades surround the narrow canyons as crux climbs and ladders take you thru the deep walled canyon on forested paths in the beautiful natural settings.

Although no experience is required this canyon is suited to people that have a decent level of fitness and a sense of adventure!

Canyoneering and canyoning are often associated with technical descents — those that require abseils (rappels) and ropework, technical climbing or down-climbing.

Crow Creek's ‘dry' canyon was carved by ice ages then filled with gold that beckoned Alaska's hydro-miners. Explore the treasure left behind rappelling near thundering waterfalls while scrambling thru mossy canyons relatively dry in your long pants and boots with our technical gear and friendly guide.

Amazing scenery and tranquility surround the world's most northern temperate rainforest on your canyoneering adventure. Individual and group challenges highlight the intimate small group tours with private departures available. Cayoning upgrades include guaranteed gold panning at Crow Creek Gold Mine with a ribs and slaw BBQ creek side gold panning lunch option too.

Adventures start at tour time with advance reservations in the Hotel Alyeska front lobby in Girdwood. Dress ready to scramble over rocks in long pants while getting familiar with local flora through trickling canyons. Sturdy shoes are a must plus camera cases or tight fitting backpacks to store layers or windbreaker. Canyoning gear includes universal and size appropriate harnesses, ropes, belay devices, gloves and helmets plus of course your friendly guide.

Van transportation from Girdwood brings you to winding and dirt Crow Creek Road leading to the historic mining area of the Chugach National Forest. Look for black bears and moose foraging in the underbrush on the way to Crow Creek Gold Mine. The quaint and ‘patented' Crow Creek Gold Mine is privately operated and still producing gold for over 100 years. Claim jumping takes on new meaning exploring Crow Creek federally protected ‘dry' canyon mining claims listed in the National Historic Registry.

Rappelling 50' into the lush canyon starts the challenge of descending three mixed terrain and vertical wall pitches. Hiking forests littered with mining relics brings you to the ultimate canyon with unique sites, smells and sounds including Crow Creeks thundering waterfall in a Jurassic-like mist filled area.

Ascending the ‘dry' canyon, sculpted by years of tumbling glacial water requires a few crux moves in the one mile long natural obstacle course. Challenges require climbing rocky terrain, traversing mossy canyon caves, gripping ropes, scaling ladders and balancing around rocks and boulders in steep terrain. Chugach Mountain views in spruce and hemlock rainforests along the Iditarod National Historic Trail cap off your epic journey.

Anchorage Eco Tour

Eco and Sustainable Tours Anchorage
$125
This is not your average City Tour, because Anchorage is not an average city!

Take an eco tour within Anchorage's city limits! This half day naturalist led tour explores Anchorage's ecological treasures that include a guided walk through Alaska's boreal forest trails, a look into the fish that shape the fortunes and ecosystem of Alaska at the Jack Hernandez Fish Hatchery, and finishing off with a chance to observe birds and plant species in an estuary bordering the Cook Inlet at the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge.

Learn about the varied ecosystems, plant, and animal species that make living in the boreal forest such an adventure. Walk in the woods through Alaska's largest city, and let the fresh air spark your curiosity!

During the tour, we'll activate all of our senses while sipping the sustainably-harvested wild Alaska Chaga mushroom tea and an Alaskan salmon treat! You will ride in comfort and enjoy our complimentary snacks and glacier wellness water while your local Alaskan guide regales you with ecological knowledge.
