Anchorage Day Trips, Tours & Outdoor Adventures

With a wide selection of day tours, easy to access excursions and outdoor activities, Anchorage is the starting point for many of Alaska’s visitors.

Located on Cook Inlet and surrounded by mountains and wilderness, the city of Anchorage in Alaska is a unique combination of wilderness and modern city life. Alaska’s largest city with its trademark slogan “Big Wild Life” will treat you to a variety of museums, dining options, and the shopping you might expect in any medium sized U.S. city. What you might not expect in Anchorage are the 120 miles of recreational trails, an “urban” salmon fishing river, and a diversity of cultures – all on the edge of a spectacular mountain wilderness.
