A wonderful way to see the local Anchorage attractions plus 50 miles further.


Enjoy an exciting and informative day exploring all four corners of the Anchorage bowl and further.

In the 5. 5 hours of this amazing private tour you will find out what has kept me here for the last 38+ years. Who knows, you might stay too.

Itinerary

We will start with heading to all four corners of the city while seeing all the popular sights and maybe see a moose or two. I'll also show where the salmon run right through downtown. I am very flexible to the schedule and duration.

After making the rounds in the Anchorage bowl we will drive a short distance south to Beluga Point on the Turnagain Arm for some great photos and also may see some Dall Sheep. If the timing is right we may see people surfing the Bore Tide.

Then 25 more miles to Girdwood Station for restrooms and refreshments.

Then about 12 miles further along the Turnagain Arm to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, over 250 acres of all the Alaska animals including Brown Bear, Black Bear, Musk Ox, etc. The Brown Bear alone have 18 acres to live in their own habitat. We can drive through or walk through. Entrance fees included.

On the way back in we'll stop at Potter Valley Bird Refuge and take a walk on the boardwalk across the valley marsh and see spawning salmon and maybe moose.
