Overview

Alaska Tours from Anchorage

Anchorage ToursAlaska's largest city is home to an exciting blend of wildlife and culture and as such you're just as likely to see a moose making its way along the main street as you are a museum or heritage centre. 

Anchorage also features a remarkable range of parks and gardens which means, when combined with the surrounding mountains and rugged coastline, you'll discover an exceptional array of scenic trails.

Botanical gardens and the beauty of Cook Inlet make Alaska tours from Anchorage an extremely enjoyable experience. Filling up at Thai restaurants and micro-breweries, you may be tempted to stay a while longer.

Anchorage Insider Tips

Insider Tip: Point Woronzof
The perfect place to truly enjoy the grandeur of Anchorage. Look across Cook Inlet, enjoy the mountains, and just imagine what it must've been like when Captain Cook first sailed these waters. Sunsets are spectacular and the views serene, broken occasionally by planes taking off, which makes for some incredible photos. Make sure you pack enough layers as it can get windy!
When to go
Anchorage is fairly mild all-year-round, however thanks to its proximity to the coast it can turn colder, especially at the start and the end of the short summer period. Temperatures rarely rise above 20C, and as a rule you can expect over 20 hours of sunlight per day in June and July. Autumn has an earlier onset of darkness, but presents more chance of seeing the northern lights.
