Anchorage Sightseeing Tours and Activities

Print

Anchorage was born as a railroad tent city on the shores of Ship Creek. Today, Alaska's biggest city holds about half the state's entire population, but it still feels like an outpost in the middle of a vast wilderness – and that is part of its charm. A stay in Anchorage lets you enjoy all the amenities of big city life, but still vault into the Alaska wilderness within about a half-hour drive. Surrounded by mountains and diverse wildlife, Anchorage is an outdoorsman's dream destination. There are many exciting hiking trails, nature expeditions, and museums to visit in our beautiful city. Anchorage is a good jumping-off point for many parts of the state, but it has a lot more to offer, from interesting museums to lively nightlife, and ski slopes right on the doorstep.

SAC1005 Alaska Bear Viewing Trip to Lake Clark National Park

Lake Clark National Park is located on the western shores of the Cook Inlet. This ocean front setting is the ultimate bear habitat. The creeks that run through the prairies are loaded with Silver Salmon, attracting resident Brown Bear populations to the areas all summer long. The tall grass and a backdrop of the Neacola Mountains make for the best pictures. The flight to Lake Clark is a spectacular flightseeing tour. After a brief safety orientation we will head out into this ideal bear habitat to watch these creatures interact with each other in the wild. The area is excellent for viewing the bears because of the layout and geography; it is a long stretch of prairie grassland and beachfront. Watch as they frolic in the grass with their cubs, dig for clams, and take afternoon naps. This tour includes a hearty packed lunch!
