This fun three hour adventure starts by visiting the historic Ship Creek where Anchorage was first settled as a tent city in 1911. Here we will find a thriving urban salmon stream where downtown anglers often catch salmon on their lunch breaks from work. This is also the location of the Anchorage rail terminal for the historic Alaska Railroad. Next we will drive to Earthquake Park and Point Woronzof. Here we will take in the stunning view of the Anchorage skyline set against the backdrop of the Chugach Mountains and Cook Inlet. We may even catch sight of a moose along the roadway. Next its on to the busiest seaplane base in the world, Lake Hood. Watch as local bush pilots expertly land their planes and taxi to their landing docks. We then push onward to the incomparable Turnagain Arm and Beluga Point. Here we will take in the majestic scenery and scout for Beluga whales, Dall sheep, mountain goats, black bears, and bald eagles. Next we journey to Potter’s Marsh and the Anchorage Coastal Wildlife Refuge, a protected wildlife habitat home to many migratory species of birds in the summer. Then we climb up to the stunning vistas of Flattop Mountain. Here we can get a birdseye 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. Finally, back to downtown where your guide will point out the best restaraunts, bars, gift shops and art galleries in town before bidding farewell. A perfect introduction to the diverse area that is Anchorage!
