Anchorage, United States

Among the northernmost cities on Earth, Anchorage is a place with big-city amenities: fine restaurants, museums, theaters, and an excellent music scene. Creating its backdrop are the salmon-rich waters of Cook Inlet and the 5,000-foot-plus peaks of Chugach State Park. Within a short drive from downtown are dozens of wilderness adventures, and a short plane ride opens up the possibility of almost any type of adventure. Anchorage’s residents embrace both the urban amenities and the wilderness beyond it. Urban and wild are Anchorage’s two defining elements; there is no need to choose one or the other since both are parts of life here. Anchorage is best known for the trails, wildlife, and glaciers, and is the state’s cultural soul as well. Public art fills the city with life-sized murals of bowhead whales and other Alaska marine life, a whole palette of galleries, showrooms, and artist workspaces. Anchorage is home to the state’s largest museum, as well as shops and restaurants, often serving double duty as gallery spaces. Brimming with fun pursuits and awe-inspiring views, Anchorage will undoubtedly leave you wanting to come back!...

Experienced and professional guides will row between dazzling icebergs, with a panoramic view of Spencer Glacier and the surrounding mountains as a backdrop. After exploring amid the icebergs on Spencer Lake, your guide will steer you down the pristine Placer River, still affording grand views of the mountains and hanging glaciers, until pulling over to the riverbank; the Glacier Discovery Train makes a special riverbank stop to pick up rafting guests. This is one of the most scenic glacier river trips in Alaska and the first tour to operate at the Spencer Glacier Whistle Stop!

    Today you meet your local guide and have a tour of Anchorage city. You will visit historic Ship Creek where Anchorage was first settled as a tent city in 1911. Here, you'll find a thriving urban salmon stream where downtown anglers often catch salmon on their lunch breaks from work. Your guide will then take you to Earthquake Park and Point Woronzof, where you can take in the stunning view of the Anchorage skyline set against the backdrop of the Chugach Mountains and Cook Inlet. Your journey continues into Potter's Marsh and the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge, a protected wildlife habitat home to many migratory species of birds in the summer. Next is a visit to Chugach State Park and the stunning vistas of Flattop Mountain. Get a bird's eye view of the Municipality of Anchorage (which is larger than Rhode Island!) as well as views of Sleeping Lady, Denali, and the Alaska Range on clear days. As the tour comes to an end, you'll head back downtown where your guide will point out the best restaurants, bars, gift shops, and art galleries before bidding farewell. A perfect introduction to the diverse area that is Anchorage!
