Scenic 2-Hr City Tour

Setting out from your hotel in Anchorage, we will begin our tour at the Port of Anchorage and Ship Creek. Take in the views of the city from the port as your guide explains the history behind our port of Anchorage and the area at Ship Creek.

Next we will travel past the busiest seaplane base in the world, Lake Hood, through Bootleggers Cove, on our way to Earthquake Park. The park is built on an area hit hardest by the 1964 Earthquake, which with a magnitude of 9.2, is the most powerful earthquake recorded in all of North America and second in the world. Follow your guide through Earthquake Park to see the site of the memorial and to get an idea of what happened to the land as it broke apart and slid into the Cook Inlet. Cook Inlet views and pictures from here are a favorite for guests!

Lastly, take a scenic drive up to Flat Top Mountain, rising more than 3500 feet above Anchorage, which is home to many Alaskan animals including our favorite, moose! Look for moose in the valley, view the breathtaking views of the city and experience Flat Top Mountain. A short walk will take you to the overlook where you will be able to get beautiful views in the Chugach Mountains! From here, we will return down the hill to Anchorage where drop offs will be made at several hotels.

Heather is a wealth of knowledge of Anchorage and surrounding areas. She was raised here and is an avid outdoors enthusiast and athlete. Anchorage is beautiful in the summer and the views from the mountain are breathtaking. This tour is not to be missed.

Very glad we did this tour. Small group, pleasant knowledgeable driver who really loved Alaska. We got to see things we wouldn't have without renting a car. This is a good way to get an idea of the city layout. Also got some restaurant recommendations that were all excellent.

This tour was pretty good for the money. Did not see any wild life, but did see some nice scenic stuff.
