Tour Overview

On this Anchorage day trip, join a small-group tour for a drive on the Glenn Highway Scenic Byway, passing farmland that grows record breaking produce on your way to the Talkeetna Mountains and alpine area of Independence Mine State Historical Park in the beautiful Hatcher Pass. In the summer months (July & August), take a short walk through the old mining town which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In fall and spring, take a short scenic walk  in Hatcher Pass instead. During the winter, visit a local recreation area for a snowshoe stroll or fat tire bike ride with demonstration by your guide, or relax indoors by the fire. Continue your tour to one of the most unique animal husbandry projects in the world, the Musk Ox Farm. Learn more about these fascinating animals and their adaptations and place in the future of Alaskan agriculture. A farm to table style meal is included at a locally owned and operated restaurant.
